Jeff took this picture that morning.  It is funny how they age right before you without you noticing.  I always loved her freckles.

Thank you all for your condolences.  We are doing well although we each miss her in our own way.  Her sister Matsi howls a bit for her when we leave but overall is okay.  The kids took the news well but they understood she was sick and now she is at peace.  We have not put away her things.  Her pen stands empty with her bed, dish and toys unused.  Her collar and harness are in my car from when we took them off.  I don't know what to do with them.  She will be cremated and returned to us this weekend hopefully.  We plan on scattering her a few places.  The lake where she loved to swim, my parents new house in Maine where she never got to swim, maybe a little here in the yard she hadn't played in yet because there is too much snow and with Tom when we scatter him in Vermont.  She would have loved to be free to roam.
