Dear Ellie,

Thank you for making my life amazing for nine beautiful years. Loving and being loved by you has made me a more loving, more present person. The vets said your longevity was a medical miracle. Everything about you was a miracle to me.

Medicines, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, thumping on your chest 3x/day to keep your lungs clear. You took it all in stride. I'm so sad that you finally hit a point where you could no longer take in the amount of oxygen your body required. So, Friday it was my turn to give you the gift of crossing the Rainbow Bridge, surrounded by some of your wonderful family of caregivers who fed both your body and your soul, and who you loved the best.

You were the sweetest, gentlest, happiest dog I've ever met. SICSA said you'd been avoiding people who wanted to meet your little 5-month-old self so I know they were shocked when you ran right over and jumped into our laps. I am honored and beyond grateful that you chose us!

Now I long for more of your little daily gifts. Your shaking a toy at me and showing me you were fierce (ha!) whenever I walked in the door. Watching you luxuriate in dropping to roll and do "grass angels" when you went outside.

Thank you for teaching me so much—how to let others know right away that I'm thrilled to see them; how to handle my own health challenges as you did, by adapting, accepting, and finding joy in the moment. If it wasn't for your inspiration, there would be 300 families whose dogs & cats wouldn't have had the chance to be saved. I believe you were proud to know that your need for emergency and specialty treatment opened the door for others to get what they needed as well.

Run free, Little Els, with deep full breaths. I promise to honor all that you’ve given me by working even harder to keep more families together by saving their pets' lives.

Juli
