Since I don't come to MH much anymore, I don't expect many responses. However, I did want to let any real friends I might have here that our most beloved Akita, NumberNine, passed on Dec 31/10 at the age of 15. She died as she had lived - with strength and dignity - during surgery. She was with her human family and with veterinarians who genuinely cared for her.
We had NumberNine since she was a puppy. She was not "just a dog", she was a family member and my best friend. She loved us unconditionally and asked for nothing in return. She protected us, comforted us. I miss her so much. Her passing has left a big hole in my soul.
Good Night, Big Sister. I will always love you.
