My Little Mermaid Ariel - Ariel was a sweet, loving, kind hearted, friendly shih tzu. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. She suffered with fluid around her heart and stomach. She was not only my best friend, but my partner in crime! Sadly, she passed on Aug. 6, 2013 at 4 a.m. Our hearts were completely broken. But, as we are trying to gain back spirit, we remember she is now with the Lord and expressing her wonderful life she had on earth and now an endless happiness with peace and comfort.
