DAY 112


One day like today, one year ago, Malú passed away

This is one of the last photos I took of my precious friend. I remember it was early in the morning, I was writing or reading in my terrace and I saw her sitting down in the dinning room table... I don´t know why, in that precise instant -looking at her and at her sister, who was by my side- I thought: here there are some of my path mates

I got hold of the camera and took a few pictures, a week later or so, she got ill and she died. I could hardly imagine at that moment, how true this affirmation was

Indeed she was a kindred spirit who taught me a lesson about death (and life) that I wouldn´t have learnt otherwise

Note: Malú was a cancer survivor during one year and eight months, even when the prognosis wasn´t good after her first surgery. She died of a kidney and heart failure, probably due to metastasis. She was perfectly "healthy" and lively till the day she was to the vet because she didn´t want to eat. She passed away four days later and stayed at home her last day and night

It's so difficult to lose our furry friends, but they do teach us many lessons, don't they?
