My Xena, my Girly-Girl, my Xena Ballerina, my Zeenees, my Best Girl, is gone. She came into my life when I needed her the most and was a loving, devoted, sensitive and loyal companion. She's been telling me over the past few weeks that she wasn't happy, and this morning she told me it was time to go. My vet, Dr. Mariko Kramer from the Santa Clarita Animal Hospital and her tech Janice came over this afternoon and put her to sleep. Dr. Kramer and Janice were wonderful: kind and sensitive and not afraid to cry themselves. My best friend Kris, her daughter and my goddaughter Sara and Sara's boyfriend Marcus were also here. I want to thank all of them for being here.
I'm still not able to talk or write much about it, but wanted to share some photos of her over the years. I know so many of you have wished her well since she got sick last summer, so I want to thank all of you so much for your support. You may think your comments to a blog don't mean much, but they do. They really do.
Xena is in a better place now.
