If you've listened to Episode 115 of DogCast Radio you'll have heard Karen Litzinger's interview about adopting older dogs, where she talked movingly and with great joy about her own dog Tika whom she adopted at the age of 11. I've had some sad news from Karen today that Tika has died. She was 14, and you can read about what happened in Karen's own words here. I hope Karen takes comfort from the fact that she gave Tika a wonderfully loving and fulfilling home in her last few years.
