Nellie's owner called me early this morning to cancel her precious King Charles Spaniel's walk for today and it wasn't because Nellie was going to the groomers or because she was sick; instead, Nellie was going to leave this world at her vet's office today. Nellie's bout with syringomyelia had finally taken it's toll on her tiny little body and since her symptoms were worsening every day, her owners felt it was time to let Nellie go.
What a sad day this has been for everyone who loved and cared for dear, sweet Nellie, but it is comforting to know that Nellie is not suffering anymore and is probably doing what she loved best (begging for treats) in Heaven tonight.
Dear Nellie, we miss you already and we will never forget
your flirtations with your tall, dark, and handsome boyfriend, Zeus,
