A sad day

In November 2004 our little Sharpei, Nala came into our lives.  A bundle of wrinkles.  She instantly became Bianca's baby.
An incredible bond was formed between this two...when Bianca was out, she would sit at the window facing the street waiting for her to come back.
We were there when she had her first littler of puppies.  She was only a puppy herself and it was much too soon.
What a beautiful bundle of wrinkles.
She was such a caring mama.
It gives me a lump in my throat to look at these beautiful photos.
When the grandchildren came along she was the patient baby minder...never snapping or growling.
Very much part of the family.

Yesterday she was knocked down by a car.  At 5'o clock last night our fears were confirmed. Her back was broken.  Her nervous system was so severely damaged that even with an operation she would never regain control of her hind legs.  She could no longer urinate and they had to insert a catheter.  This morning we had to make the decision to end her pain.  
 
Phoning Bianca to let her know, was so hard, Nala was her baby.   She is leaving such a tremendous gap in our lives.  I feel so sad.
