Some days just plain suck and today was one of them. Our wonderful Great Pyrenees, Dora crossed over the rainbow bridge. It was very unexpected and we are extremely saddened.
However, we know that her spirit and will to protect in a most gentle nature will live on in her offspring who currently work on farms throughout the east guarding sheep, goats, horses, llamas, alpacas and poultry along with those who work in their own special way as therapy dogs.
A very special thanks to Dr. Chris Palgrave, a recent veterinary school graduate from Scotland who is working for our regular veterinarian. His professionalism, empathy and respect for Dora's wellbeing in the last moments of her life are a a true indicator that he'll make an excellent veterinarian in the coming years.
Dora, your warm furry dog hugs be dearly missed every morning at Painted Hand Farm.
