And I'm really sad.

She was my childhood dog. We got her when I was 11. She was 16. I haven't lived with my parents in almost a decade, but she never forgot me, she always loved me, and when I saw her this last weekend she was ready to go. Her kidneys were not functioning well—we found out three weeks ago.

I'm glad she's not in pain anymore, and I know she had a long, good life (she was a rescue) but I'm going to miss her so much.

Please snuggle your furry loved ones today.

ETA: Thanks for all the condolences, GT buddies. It's a little less hard when you've got a circle of online love.
