Today is a sad day, because Harki died. We are 2paw once more.
Yesterday she went for her usual walk and was as happy as could be and I took her photo. I took her photo every day in case that day was her last. Then last night she was very unwell, and no-one slept at our house at all. I helped her off the bed this morning and we sat outside for a few hours, Peri and Gilly playing, and Harki and I at the back door. I rang The Hospital at 8am and Harki bravely went up the stairs and then I helped her into the car. The lovely nurses helped Harki out of the car because I didn't want to hurt her leg again. They had a box of tissues and a cup of tea for me. Harki was very happy to be at the Vet, she hopped in and lay down beside me, and kept looking round the door to see what was happening. Dr Rob and the nurse came and they were so kind.
She just went quietly to sleep, I kissed her goodbye and then came home to Peri and Lorelai Gilmore.
They've been running to the back gate, looking for Harki, but she's not there.
Good bye Harki-Parki-Parker-Posey.
She was beautiful and I loved her dearly.
Best Labrador in the world.
