Hailey J, you were a special dog. A dog that I loved and cared about very much. The day that snake bit you, I some how knew that after loosing your friend, Hermione, that you were going to be with her. I’m somewhat glad we put you to sleep. We put you out of suffering that the venom put you in. It blinded you. It caused your brain to swell. I just hope you know that we didn’t send you there to kill you. We sent you there to help you. And sadly, life had to end. Even though you were only 2 years old. I will always love and miss you, “Nemo”.
