Hi Sue ... Welcome! Sorry for your loss ... My dad used to say that the only bad thing about having fur children is that their lifespans are way too short! If you have lots of pictures and a few dollars "mad money" try creating a photo story book in her memory at Heritage Makers. I made one of our beloved Kayla Sheltie (Rainbow Bridge 2009) and it was a great therapy to do after losing her and now a wonderful tribute to her memory! We'd love to see some pics of Miss Ellie - she sounds like a sweetie!
