In memory of Muirne

From a happy pet post to a sad pet post.

No, Muirne has not passed away.

But we are not keeping her.

It’s a long story. And it was not an easy decision to make.

Suffice to say, I’ll not be sleeping much tonight. Her last night with us. I’m still crying about it.

Muirne is a 7-almost-8 year old German shepherd/terrier mix. ‘Muirne’ is a Celtic word, and it means ‘affectionate.’

Sums up my dog exactly.

She saved my life back in September. I’ll never forget that.

So here are some good pictures of Muirne, so I’ll remember her.

Oh, yes, the time she burrowed into the tiny cat bed!  How could I have forgotten?
