I rescued my sweet Nala girl in 2016. She was 4 1/2 years old and I was home number seven. She was under weight, full of fleas and worms and had untreated Lyme’s disease that had damaged her kidneys. She had severe allergies and even worse separation anxiety. We worked hard to get it under control, and for a while it was. But eventually her kidneys failed. And I had to let her go.

But in the time we had, Nala was the most amazing companion and friend. She never met anyone she didn’t like. Strangers of all shapes and sizes would stop and ask to pet the “big dog” and she would always oblige. She always knew when I was down or in need of some extra love. And her favorite thing was to snuggle down next to me, no matter how tight the space.

She had a huge presence, a huge heart and in turn has left a huge hole in my life. I will always love you my sweet angel. I pray that you are snuggled up next to Jesus and running painlessly on the streets of gold.
