On August 27th, we had to put our best friend, Heddy, down. Her health declined rapidly over a day, and after a series of vet visits, we found out she had a number of tumors in her abdomen. We are grateful to all of the friends we have met along the way and in particular those in Long Island who helped us when she died.

We miss her an incredible amount. She was the best dog Amelie and I had ever owned, and Averie’s best friend. Hopefully she is playing ball with meatballs on the beach. We love and miss you, Heddy.
