Nova, a lovely shepherd cross joined us when she was around eleven years old. It is likely that she had spent much, if not all, of her life on the streets of Romania. Losing a leg at some point, Nova was lucky that Association Orfée spotted her. Poor Nova, she was on our list a long while, but she was fostered and saved from euthanasia. She loved to be brushed. In fact, attention was a delight for her. But it was evident from the beginning that her pain, when lifting herself, was chronic. With a hefty morphine dose to break the pattern, Nova had a period of reasonable relief, but then her hip joint and pelvis took its last lift. Such a love. Run free now my princess. You can be who you want to be now.
