Well she was sick. She has been sick for a couple of months. We noticed after our backpacking trip to Fossil Creek that she had been lethargic. We took her in to the vet for fleas, and they gave her some tests. Cancer. They gave her a month. A month later she got a bad infection on her leg that wasn' t healing. Friday the 13th was the day a piece of my heart died. She was the best dog. She never left my side. She would always be looking out for everybody to make sure we were all together during our hikes. Now she will be the first to look out for us as we cross over to the other side. We'll miss you Gina. I'll always remember your bright eyes, and wagging tail. We love you!
