short while ago we very sadly had to put Leila to sleep. Leila had been one of our permeant residents for many years, a wonderful dog, so sweet, gentle, playful and extremely loving. She would have made a wonderful family pet except sadly Leila had many medical problems. She came into our care when she was just one year old...it was soon after that she developed an immune problem. Many trips to the vet later and we were able to manage this condition with holistic medicine and acupuncture, but it was always a difficult condition and sometimes it got better and sometimes it got worse. Leila was six years old when her condition again became much worse, she was not comfortable and she was no longer able to eat on her own and so we let her go . Dear Leila...may you have all the cuddles, love, and affection you so very much deserve across the rainbow bridge.
