She passed away in May 2009 at the age of 16. I had this pencil drawing done of her as a Christmas present to my husband. (Click on the image for the full sized portrait). The drawing was done by Rosellen Westerhoff (Gridley Arts), who does a beautiful job with custom animal portraits. Every time I walk past the portrait in our dining room, I can't believe how life-like it is. It is amazing!
We spread her ashes at Pole Mountain outside of Laramie, Wyoming, so that she can always be running free in the mountains of her youth. Our house is very sad without her. We'll miss her forever, and can't wait to see her at the Rainbow Bridge.
