Sad News

I wasn't going to write anything today, mostly because nothing exciting has happened around here, but we got an email from Bionic Grandad today.  My cousin Tia has crossed the bridge.

This was the email Bionic Grandad sent:

Tia spent the first years of her life in a puppy mill as a breeding female. She came to Grammy as a rescue dog. Once Grammy had nursed her back to health she felt Tia was very special and needed her so adoption by another family was not on.
The last eight years of her life with us she has given far more  to us than we have given to her. To-day her heart which had been enlarged for some time could not sustain her. We really do not know exactly how old she was but are very thankful for the time she has spent with us. It is funny how so much is said between you and your pet without ever speaking a word.
This little gentle loving dog will be greatly missed.

Run free Tia.

Pass our sympathies on from our whole family. Tia sounds like a special gal and I am sure grandad's heart is breaking right now.
