Run free, Willow.

Willow - Rest In Peace, 14/8/2011
This morning, one of my beautiful dogs, Willow, passed away. I was woken from the cries of my mother. I shot downstairs only to find Willow lying on her bed, her body stiff and her eyes glazed. She died happy, with our other dogs in her warm house.
I've struggled all morning to come to terms with the fact that she's gone. I had to stroke her and kiss her head one last time. She was so cold and lifeless. I just can't get over the fact that she's gone.
Never before have I met such a docile, gentle dog. A dog who appreciated every shred of attention you gave to her. She would stand by your side, her head pressed against your hip and wouldn't leave until you'd stopped stroking her. Even at her older age, she was a playful pup. Snapping at the air and shaking her head around, excited for walks and strokes.
Saying my last goodbyes to her was... torture to say the least.
I'm going to miss her so much, and I'll never stop loving her. I'm just glad she's getting cremated and we'll always have a piece of her with us.
Run free, Willow. I love you.
