It started out busy with school then decorating more for Christmas. This evening I found our dog Mia lying outside clearly not doing well. She wasn't able to walk so I managed to half carry, half drag her inside. We tried to make her as comfortable as possible, but it was clear we were losing her.
I was hugging and petting her when she slipped out of this life.
Despite her large size she was a big baby and really great with the kids. She will be sorely missed, but
I am so glad we had her these last 8 years as part of our family.
