To All Her Cool Friends, Wonderful Family and Her Fans,
She asked me to write a message to you all. Yesterday, at approximately 1 p.m., my beautiful girl went up to Heaven to be with her best friend Katela and my Mom. I made the extremely difficult decision to put her to sleep because she was getting uncomfortable in her own skin. She was growing weaker in her back legs and she had been having some accidents in the house. It was a very peaceful transition and I know she is in a better place. I was with her for the whole transition and she thanked me for it.
We had a lot of wonderful years together as a working team. She was the best Guide Dog I could have ever asked for. Many fun trips together, too. I remember fondly our vacation to Minnesota and Wisconsin. And then there were our annual trips to the casinos in Laughlin, Nevada, so that she could take me to her favorite store to get her chocolate covered dog biscuits. She also loved the slot machines. She was a pretty good good-luck charm for me.
I know that she is up in Heaven with all her other four-legged friends and that my Mom is taking care of her feeding her all the apples, bananas and other treats she so justly deserves. I will miss her terribly, but I know she is much happier and no longer in any distress.
I LOVE YOU MY BEAUTIFUL LADY GLISTEN!!!!!!!!!!
