They came into this world 10 days apart, from different breeders. They met on the trip to California. They were 8 weeks old.
They never parted after that.
And tonight they left this world together.
Mohawk is no longer in pain from a back and hips that could not bend anymore.
Ladybug no longer has to fight to raise her head or to try to lick my face.
I give thanks for my daughter who met us at the vets.
I give thanks to the entire staff at Arroyo Grande Veterinary Clinic who stayed after closing until we could get there. They were kind, gentle and loving.
We miss these two more than you know. But we are relieved that the pain is over for both of them.
Maybe later I can tell the story.
Tonight I cry and hug Zelda.
