    I'm Losing My Beloved Trixie

    Alas the time has come. Trixie has developed kidney problems and seems to have aged 12 years overnight. She spent some time in the hospital and it helped lower hwer numbers, but the Doctor says even with a perfect diet and pure water, she has "months, not years " left. I'm not...
