We are beyond devastated to let you know that Pearl followed Eivor across the rainbow bridge this morning.
She took a bad turn yesterday afternoon with a racing heart and a high temperature and stayed at the vets overnight, where her condition initially became stable. This morning she took another bad turn and the vet said that the kindest thing was to let her go.
I spent an hour by her side before she slipped away and wished her the safest journey.
Pearl was the sweetest, bravest and cheekiest soul we were lucky enough to share so many wonderful years with in this life.
She and Eivor were inseparable and now they are together again.
I am taking a break from blogging on Whippet Wisdom for the moment and will post my haiku, haibun, tanka, and other poems and photographs on my nature blog, Tranature.
Thank you all for walking along with us here over the years. It has been a great pleasure to share the natural beauty as seen through the eyes of our beloved friends. Their spirit will always live on in our hearts.
Peace and blessings to you all and thank you for your friendship,
with love from Xenia xxx
