She was diagnosed with mouth cancer in early January, and was given days to weeks to live. We are so lucky to have had her for an extra four months.
But as with Saga, I don't want to dwell on her illness. Instead, we want to remember the happy times with our beautiful girl.
Although Freya became a part of our family in 2005, this is the earliest digital image I have of her, from 2008. If you left a drawer open, she'd be in it.
She loved laying on papers. Or books. Or laptops. Or clean laundry.
She "helped" me quite a lot when I was finishing up my dissertation. She was the instigator of more than a few naps.
DId I mention how much she loved to be in things?
And lay on papers? Even a single piece of paper would do.
Stealing the dog bed was another favorite.
As was sleeping upside-down.
She only weighed about 10 pounds, but she had enormous paws. Snowshoe-type paws. Which is clearly very important if you live in south/central Texas.
She was (almost) always very dignified.
And DEFINITELY always very, very cute.
You will be missed, sweet girl. We love you.
