It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this blog post. Our sweet, beautiful baby girl Cleo passed a few days ago. I know she was old (13.5 years old), but up until the last month she was still acting very young. Her mind was sharp and clear to the end, but her old body gave out on her. She passed naturally and as peacefully as one can, at home, with me by her side. I was petting her and telling her how much we loved her. I'm very sad and I know she lived a long life but it wasn't long enough.
