In Memory of Elli

I am sad to announce that Elli passed away two nights ago. She was only one year old. This was the only picture we have of her. It was taken when she was about 6 weeks old. She was the daughter of our dogs Digo and Izzy. It's unclear what exactly happened but somehow during the night on Monday she had some trauma to the chest that caused one side of her lungs to implode and fill with blood. The vet said it is possible that it could have happened while her and Digo where playing. Elli was a very rambunctious dog and loved to run and jump and play, which it seems is what caused her early death. We will miss her. Her mom Izzy, got into some poison last December and passed away. So now Digo is all alone. I hope he can handle it alright. We might think about getting another dog, but it won't be until at least next spring.

I'm sorry Sunny. It's always sad when a pet dies. Who knows how much they understand about what is happenning to them. I'm glad that Elli is with her mommy though.
