My heart is so sad today. My loyal friend, Charlotte, was sent to a restful sleep this afternoon. An early morning visit to the doctor found multiple health issues with my 12 1/2 year old girl.
I had to make an extremely difficult decision - but the doctor assured me that it was the right one to make at this point in her life. She's been a very good friend and companion to me and I will miss her terribly.
I snapped her photo this morning before we left home. I must have had a feeling deep in my heart that I may not have another opportunity to do so. Now I have to begin my journey of adapting to a very suddenly quiet and empty home.
