Pets: Hershey (1997-2012)
Hershey was a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix that my mom first purchased in 1997 as a gift to herself. I helped her raise Hershey from puppyhood into a young dog. When I moved to Texas in 2001, my mom followed and brought Hershey with her. In August 2002, mom moved back to North Carolina, leaving Hershey behind, so she became my dog.

She was my little cuddle baby until she began suffering from kidney failure at the age of 13 which caused her dementia and other health issues. She died in my arms on January 5, 2012. She was cremated and her ashes are in an urn in my living room.
