Ten days ago, one of the two dogs I am looking after, Shadow, died. She had been suffering from ulcers in her intestines for a long time. Every day, I had given her meds together with the food.

One evening, she was bleeding out of her mouth all of a sudden. Probably, an ulcer had broken, and she had internal haemorrhages.

We tried to get her to a vet, but she died on the way in my arms. On the next morning, we buried her. A sad day.

We’ll meet again, Shadow.
