In Memory of Cuddles Marie (14-04)

Our hearts are broken. Our brave, beautiful and loving golden girl has passed. She had Addison’s, but it was under control. She was happy and carefree, surveying and protecting her domain with a small iron paw, and ruling and loving her family wholeheartedly. She touched every heart she met. Unbeknownst to us, however, the steroids she was taking hid two large masses on her spleen. One, ruptured overnight, and it was too late by the time we got her into surgery. Her abdomen had filled with blood and she was not strong enough to survive. She was the head and heart of this household. She was so very much a part of our lives. Her fur brother and sister, as well as her human are devastated.
