In Loving Memory of

Siskiyou, March 16th 2008 aged 12 1/2 yrs

It is with great sadness that I send the news that we put Siskiyou to sleep yesterday. Her body had grown old, her spirit was still so young. She had multiple health issues which finally led me to chose to put her to sleep rather than continue searching for answers which we have done for the last year and a half and more.

She will be missed beyond what I can imagine.

Her last four days were very wonderful, starting with her 12.5 birthday party on Sunday, and thank you to all who sent her such warm wishes. We knew at that time that she would sleep in four days for good, but she had so much fun surrounded by all the people she loved—she was happier than I had seen her in quite some time. The next few days were spent totally with her giving her as much love and comfort as was possible. On her last day we "went for an adventure in the truck" one of her favorite things. She is now on a grand adventure free from age and illness.

She is buried in the back yard, right in view from the house where I see her tree and think of her often. She fills my heart. When the time has healed my sorrow some I will send details of her life and health issues and reports from the necropsy. And more fun, photos of a wonderful long life full of love and fun.

Rest peacefully sweet Siskiyou.

Terri and Siskiyou's memory cherished



And this is when she was about 5 or 6
