I haven't been able to write about my sweet Savannah. She passed away July 23, 2012. I should say that we had to face a difficult challenge for us -- and that was to let her go.
After a year of health issues and another surgery, we discovered that our little girl was suffering from a fast spreading cancer. It was in her liver.
Savannah was such a sweet Basenji. She never gave us much trouble growing up. Yes, she chewed a few things here and there, but really not that much. She was smart and tough. I still remember her leading out in front on our walks. Moving quick and confidently.
She was our big love and my husband's little girl. Oh how she wrapped up his heart in her paw. He would smother her with kisses and she never mind them at all. She knew love; warmth; shelter and safety.
We had a tough year with her illnesses. But still we did whatever we could to make her life comfortable. We even bought her a pretty pink stroller when she was having difficulty walking. My husband pushed that stroller with all his pride and love.
