16 years 9 months and 1 weekCity
Ibis is the absolute love of my life. I had her since she was born. She was born on March 21st 2004. I am absolutely devastated as Ibis passed away at home with family on December 28th 2020 after a long battle with cancer. She fought hard for so long and I like to think she passed from old age rather than the cancer. She had such a wonderful Christmas opening up her gifts and her passing was very sudden but her poor old body just couldn't do it anymore. Even though she was a part of my life for 16 years, 9 months and 1 week it wasn't long enough. Ibis was stricken with severe crippling arthritis around the age of 10 and we used a baby stroller to bring her around out in public. Ibis loved to get out and visit other people and places. Ibis got to go to Mardi Gras this year before Covid hit to celebrate her sweet 16. We tried to give her all the joys we could to enrich her life. She got to travel to Boston, Niagara Falls, NYC, DC, Salem, Savannah, Plymouth Rock. She loved her stroller and would throw a temper tantrum if you took her out. We were so blessed to have her in our wedding in October and it really was her day. She would have loved to of gone to Dogapalooza this year if Covid allowed. I still cry everyday and miss her so much.
