Many of you have already seen this on Facebook, but for the rest of the list:

Yesterday we lost our beloved doggie Cheeta, our companion for more than 16 
years. Here are two images from the beginning and end of her life. 

This one was taken in October 2001 in our house in Zurich. My wife has just 
given 5-month old Cheeta a bath and is now drying her with a thick towel:

Cheeta has been declining for the past couple of months—we all get older, after 
all. But the decline accelerated in the past two weeks, to the point where 
Cheeta stopped eating and was not moving around a lot, although there were 
occasional flashes of activity. So on Saturday morning our vet for the past 10 
years, Isabel, did a blood test and a sonogram. The sonogram showed a tumor on 
her liver, but what was causing her symptoms was that her kidneys were no 
longer functioning—the same illness that killed our kitty a last year. Here, 
Isabel is extracting the blood sample:
Cheeta hung on for the weekend, but yesterday it was time. I left work early, 
picked up Monica at the university, and the three of us went to the vet 
together to accompany Cheeta on her final journey.

This morning, for the first time since 2000, I woke up in a house without pets.
