Sweet girl, we’d no way of knowing that spaying you would harm you.  We lost you today … our special curly topped girl … we are so sorry we couldn’t do more for you.  We are very grateful to your foster mama who gave you the chance to be happy and loved, and feel secure and well fed over the past few weeks.  I know in her heart that she will always carry a piece of you, as all of us will.  Dahlia, know that you were loved, and that many cared about you, and that we will work hard to save another one in your name.  Sleep well sweetheart.  Run and play and smile your beautiful smile on the other side.  Blessed be Dahlia.
