Xena passed away peacefully today in good spirits. With the exception of her lust for dog-fighting and trespassing, she was a very good dog. She always loved her family and especially the children. She was never dull or boring but could always sit back and take it easy. She’d carry 25lbs of gear over 20 kilometers and then wonder why we were stopping. If you cut back on her kibble to loose weight she would just eat the grass, weeds, goose droppings, cigarette buts, paper, bugs, and sticks – no worries.
