The suck that sucks the suck of a thousand sucks is back, and Dr. Brandi thinks it's a matter of hours or days before it's time to help Katy on her way. It feels like yesterday that we found her standing in a snowstorm at the end of a chain, emaciated and miserable yet still willing to risk a tentative wag of her tail in hopes we had a kind word or scrap of food to spare. She was ours in an instant, destined to become a lifelong member of the family. That throwaway dog became the best of friends with the Red Dog and a permanent resident in all our hearts. Now - ten years later - we're reaching the end. Any prayers and love you can spare for her are greatly appreciated.
