This is the author of SGADS. I'm not advertising currently, so my book's thread was closed.

Readers/Friends of Athena:
I am very sad to write that Athena Justagirl Haus Juris was sent to the bridge Tuesday night at age 12 due to a very sudden case of bloat. She went painlessly in my arms, guided along by the nicest vet I've ever dealt with. She was brave and good and gave me goodbye kisses. Her auntie Liz--she is Kiera's mommy from the book; Kiera went to the bridge herself this past May--was with us and was a rock star (her auntie Wendy, from Ruby's barn, was also a huge help). I feel like I've been in a car wreck- my whole body is howling in grief.


I couldn't have asked for a better buddy, playmate, nurse, child, mother and bodyguard rolled into one glamorous, impossibly beautiful package. We were each other's hearts and would have taken a bullet for the other.



True story--on Athena's last night, she mustered up the strength to rise from her bed, wearing her walking harnesses, hunched in pain, and bark menacingly at a pair of solicitors at my door who I turned away and who before she did that, weren't keen on leaving. Our last full night together she stood vigilant to protect me, as she had her whole life. Our last half night together I stood vigilant (as much as I could) to gently usher her to the next chapter.


Athena was welcomed at the bridge by Kiera, Carman, Kaiser, Alistair, Finnegan, and best of all... Kashka. Your first kitty's been waiting, babygirl.
Athena Justagirl Haus Juris: January 10, 2003-February 24, 2015. I loved you every day.

Since we all have to die one day, what more could we ask than to go in the arms of the ones that love us? Rest in peace, beautiful girl, you won't be forgotten.

It is with great sorrow that I hear of the passing of Athena! They provide the greatest joys and the deepest hurt!
