Sweet Dreams, Wilma

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 2 October 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Wilma, a beagle/basset who rescued the family after a previous loss of a pet, succumbed to cancer and had to be put to sleep yesterday. She fought a brave fight and outlived what many veterinarians predicted after first being diagnosed.

Being a rescue, her real age was unknown. But she captured the hearts of the family for eight years.

Photo captured July 20, 2013.

A beautiful picture of Wilma. It is so sad that she is gone but she will always be remembered. I have 3 rescue dog's including one disabled. Rescuing any animal is wonderful and I am sure Wilma had a wonderful life. 5*

My heart goes out to you Steven. We had to put one of our two rescue dogs down earlier in the year. Tough business that is. Wilma looks like she was a sweetie. RIP Wilma.
