A sad start to the new year

This year has got off to rather a bumpy start - we had to say good-bye to our Lilo-dog a few days ago.  We adopted Lilo, as an adult dog, when her owner emigrated in 2009.  She quickly became part of the family but developed a particular bond with Paula.  

Lilo was just the sweetest dog, so friendly and happy.  She lived to the ripe old age of 12 and was completely healthy until the last year or so, when her arthritis gave her a lot of trouble.  She developed a cough on New Years Eve and it turned out to be a symptom of heart failure.  Good-bye our Lilo-beast, thanks for being such a sweet and special member of our family.  Go well old girl.
