thank you Bunnykins - peace and ease was what we wanted for her
truthfully we don't know precisely how old Cleo was. the people who had her before weren't too forthcoming. she was clearly an adult dog when I got her ... likely somewhere between 2 and 4. She's been with me/us for about 12 years.
lots of sniffing and gulping going on around here tonight
but then I look at the photos and more funny memories come back
Cleo was a dog with a sense of humour and she learned to love new experiences
Oh ehbeth and set, I'm so sorry.
All our pets give us nothing but unconditional love, and you both gave it back to Miss Cleo.
Thank you Izzie.
We are accepting all hugs gratefully.
Thank you Jessela.
I know you know, but there sure was a lot of happy on the way here.
Thank Miss Letty.
Miss Cleo was the closest thing to a dame I've ever seen in a dog. She liked dressing up and she LOVED to dance. She'd probably have liked martinis if I'd ever offered her one.
Thank you Punkey.
I think Cleo had the closest thing possible to a last good day. Sunshine, people she loves, little pain.
Again, Beth and Set, my condolences. I think I fear this day worse than my own demise. My heart aches for you both, nope.. you three.
Sorry to hear of your loss, Set
When you are ready for it, here is the start of Penny o Hamster's tales of her visit with Cleo and family back in 2007. It goes for many pages, but a lot of the photos are no longer visible. Looking at the links might help you remember the file/album names.

Tidbits from the What Made You Smile thread
No need to thank me, Beth and Set. I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. Nothing much to say other than that I feel for you both. Sweet that she was with you so closely on her last day.
Thanks for this - it's been a marvelous ramble through some old threads.
Great to see some old friends, who no longer post:
hiama, smorgs, cavfancier, nimh, kickycan, mac11, gus, Lil K.
My thanks to anyone whom we have not specifically thanked for their kind thoughts. Butterfly, that was really amazing. I agree with Margo, a wonderful glimpse of the past.
Dayum, I got things in my eyes.
I'm so sorry.
Hugs to you both.
Thank you, Boss . . . people have been so kind. Like Jespah, i think we all have things in our eyes.
I'm sorry, Setanta.
I'm sorry, Beth.
Peaceful, but not easy.
