Merry Christmas Powell, that’s what we named her after getting her out of the pound when she was 3 months old. We adopted her right at Christmas. She’s been a vital part of our lives for 7 years now and she’s bought me so much happiness throughout the years. I have a chronic illness and she’s always been there by my side when I’ve been sick. She is so loved by my husband and I and loved so much by everyone in the family. Regardless of what your family pet goes through, making the choice to do what is best for the pet is a “very” difficult one. Even when you know it’s the right choice it still still hurts so much. She will be severely missed and I can’t imagine my life ever being the same without her in it.
