Sorry for not posting yesterday, here's the deal:
Last night, Jeff's dog (mostly the landlady's) passed away last night. She was suffering from an enlarged spleen due to kidney failure, and hadn't eaten for the past 3 days. The landlady took her to the vet where she was put to sleep. Katie's suffering no more.
I'm just going to miss her, considering that she's always been around outside. I'll always remember her tail wagging when I approach the gate, and how we'd call her "Thunder Dog" 'cause of her thunderous bark (there's another dog, Butch, he barks so much that they had to take away his voice; it used to bother the neighbors).
May you rest in peace, Katie. <3
