Mati

Our fifteen years old dog, Sorosh, hasn't been well and yesterday his mate, Mati, refused to eat. For the first time ever neither of them had any interest in taking their walk. On the rare occasions when Mati took a drink of water whe threw up, but the rest of the time she lay down on a duvet in front of the fire, eyes closed or eyes open without much interest.

This Mati is the bravest creature, human or animal, we have ever known. We spoke about the time she suffered serious injuries in an engagement with a barbed wire fence whilst in forbidden pursuit of a hare, but unlike her bigger, stronger partner Mati doesn't do pain; or rather, the showing of pain. Not then and not now.

This morning she isn't much better, so what to do? Just love her, love her, love her...
