Four weeks ago today my beloved Chow/Labrador Retriever mix Madam Lasagna (a.k.a. Lei Lei) died due to complications from diabetes. I love my sweet little Poppy Seed, and yet I miss the ready companionship of my old dear friend. I wanted to share this last photo of her taken 6 days earlier. Even blind and feeble she remained a devoted friend, staying close and enjoying our daily activities. All of you who have loved a pet understand my feelings tonight.
