Today Didi went to the Rainbow Bridge to wait for us. She just had given up the will to eat and to live. We will never know what happened to her in the first five years of her life, but we can only hope she knew that she was loved for the short time we had her. Every morning she was the first dog Rich would go to before starting the "rounds". He would talk to her and pet her and encourage her to try and eat something, but for whatever reason she just wanted to be left alone. She's not alone now-she is in good company and not suffering. She is free of her pain and her past. Although she was only here for a short time, we will miss her.

We wish we could save them all, but we know that is not the reality of what we do All of our kids' lives are valuable and worth whatever we can do for them to try and make them "whole" again. In Didi's case it just wasn't possible. Although we lost Didi, her vet bills of over $1,500 still must be paid so if you can help in any amount it would be much appreciated by all of us.
