Little died at her home on Sunday evening. Her body scarred, her face white, and - for a long time now - her life very good.
Weidel said in an intensely moving post on Little Red's Facebook page that after not feeling well in the morning, and a visit to the vet, Little Red spent her last day at home - dozing, going for "short walks in her pasture," while "surrounded by her pack."
"At 10 pm, she took her last breath. She was sleeping peacefully and simply slipped away," Weidel wrote. "It has been my privilege to care for Little for over 5 1/2 years and to share her life with the many, many people who loved her and admired her strength and gentle nature. She is at peace, and I ask that you send her your love as she begins her journey on the other side."
We send you so, so much love, Little Red. Thank you for sharing this side of your journey with us. For letting it be our journey, too.
