Our puppy Layla's liver disease was too much for her, and she died last Thursday. She would have been 1 on Saturday. Due to the overwhelming support of so many members of the costuming community out there, we were able to do her surgery in December, and had her around for much longer than we would have anticipated, although not as long as we would have wanted.
To everyone who gave us encouragement, had kind thoughts and prayers for her and us, and who participated (whether by purchasing, spreading the word, modeling, etc.) in the Buy a Dress, Save a Puppy campaign we had last fall, I want to thank you. It truly means so very much to my family and to me.
