Another of my beautiful and beloved companion creatures has taken her last breath. Lissie was hit by a car this morning while I was out. Initially looked as if she was dead, an immensely kind neighbour* noticed that she was still breathing, gathered her up and rushed her to a vet. I had a phone call from them and was told the extent of her injuries - very severe and extensive head wounds - and had to make the hardest of hard decisions any animal lover ever has to make. Now her suffering is over.
'Over The Rainbow Bridge' is a comforting concept at times like this...her memory plays happily in the sun there now. Thank you, my beautiful girl, for all the love and happiness you brought to us.
I have no more words - only tears.
