my family had to say goodbye to Cassidy last night. At 15 years old, Cass was still the sweetest, gentlest, and kindest soul I have ever met. The third photo was taken yesterday, after I laid on the floor with her for four hours. She hadn’t been able to move her legs most of the morning, but she summoned the energy to put her arm (leg?) around me. Even on her last day, she still managed to make me feel so loved. I know it may sound odd to call a dog selfless, but that’s exactly who she was. She was love and compassion. Cassidy was and always will be an important member of my family, and we miss her dearly.
