Georgia's Troubles or Alpacas Go Downhill Fast! Day 16

It's sad day today. After finding out that she had developed aspiration pneumonia on Sunday and getting another set of antibiotics to fight that, her body just gave out, too weak to fight all the fronts at once. Our wonderful vet called early this afternoon and told me that it was time to let her go, which we did.

Our vet offered to bury her for us on the mountain, where she lives, which I find very appropriate since Georgia was a true mountain girl, bred and born.

Rest in peace my sweet girl, I will meet you again across the Rainbow Bridge one day...
