I don’t know how to write this post. There has been too much loss in the Miao House recently and all the beautiful words of remembrance that Tashi deserves just won’t come to me. We knew we wouldn’t have much time left with Tashi when he was diagnosed with an obstructive growth in his respiratory passages in January. The vet gave us steroids that seemed to reverse things for a while, and he was happy and active for three more months. We are grateful for that, because it is more than we expected, but now our family has lost Tashi. He was so graceful I don’t think he was capable of clumsiness, and so loving and affectionate that he didn’t believe in solitary naps.
