A tough little Bichon

A beloved member of our family passed on suddenly and peacefully Dec. 2. Chelsea Cundill was 15 1/2 years old. Chelsea had a lot of friends in Aspen and made many more when she came to us.

We will always be grateful to Joan Cundill for entrusting us with her care before moving to Tucson to courageously battle pancreatic cancer.

Chelsea had a lot of spirit, spunk and love. She had arthritis and bone spurs, but loved to walk up the Arbaney Trail. We will mark her favorite “cookie spot” with flags. As you pass, know one tough little Bichon would rest here before going back home.

Chelsea’s passing leaves a big hole in our hearts. Knowing she and Joan are together gives us peace.
