Farewell to Gefrin Little Wing, our beloved Ribhinn.
The old lady of the kennel, she was visibly distressed by our forced evacuation of the house on Sunday due to the wildfire in Willow. She struggled with the heat, and had a couple of small seizures during the first few days of our camp out at Underdog Feeds. As her condition deteriorated, I felt my only option was to take her to our vets at All Creatures Veterinary Clinic. She stayed there from Wednesday and even after we were allowed home on Saturday, it was considered that she still needed the meds, care and attention of the wonderful staff there.
During one of my many conversations with the vets, it came to light that an anonymous someone had phoned in an enormous amount of money to cover the costs of Ribhinn’s vet bill . To that person, whoever you are, I say thank you so very much.
I had hoped to bring Ribhiee home today, but early this morning, our vet called to say that she had passed on in her sleep.
My tears are flowing again and the guilt of leaving her alone is crushing my soul.
She was a dear, sweet girl and will be sorely missed.
