Elka V, 2009-2018

Elka died on July 16, 2018.

I don't want to write this post.

I also don't want to just leave everybody wondering forever, what happened.

She was in congestive heart failure, very suddenly. She was fine, and then she was not fine, and we couldn't make her suffer. We stayed with her, of course.

We gave her the best life we could. She was happy, had toys, had so much love. She was my first girl, my best girl, and I'll love her so much, forever.

I won't be updating this blog anymore. Previously, I'd left it because I'd just moved my creative energies to my fiction writing, not because anything bad had happened. I'm sorry to have left you waiting for so long.


  1. I'm so sorry...and my tears are running with yours... we lost our Easy in 2016 ... he was from 2009 too...

  2. Oh noes. I am so sorry to hear this. I missed you guys so much ~ you made me BOL all the times. I just turned 10, so Ma knows that everyday is precious. I knows she had the bestest life any puppers could wants. And was always happy and a trouble maker just likes me.

  10. It's so sad to hear that news. Kinda the same thing happened to my grandpa's dog. I miss his dog licking my hands and sniffing my shirts whenever I tuck it in.

  11. haha my dog is smarter than me, when we take the elevator he always knows which floor to get off on, i never know. Here I found interesting information about canine hidden intelligence:

  12. My deepest condolences go out to Elika's family. I have lost several pets in my life, but I still feel the pain. Losing a pet is hard, it breaks your heart and it breaks my heart to lose our pet. It's difficult to get back on track after being out for so long.

  13. You have a wonderful view out that window! I'd be gazing out instead of getting my work done!
