Just Yesterday


Recommended Posts

Slick has joined the gang at the bridge. He was failing for some time and last night went down in the rear and I could not get him up. Sometimes it is just time. So, instead of the scheduled ultrasound for his bladder, he made the trip......


What a grand old man! Seniors are so incredible. Just a few days ago, my roommate Rosemary called and said "what can I feed him?" I've offered him 3 kinds of kibble, hamburger, rolls.... I said "are you sure he wants to eat" She said "he's standing there looking at me and barking" :) That meant, yes he wanted to eat and you had to figure out what menu he was barking out :rolleyes: He wanted some NB beef roll. Once fed the "right" item, he layed down and was content.


I'm going to miss the old guy. He's running with the kids, and will find his first "mom" who preceded him.


Run like the wind sweet boy!

I am so very sorry for your loss. :f_white


THAT'S the downside of loving those seniors:

you have to love them twice as much and twice as fast

to make up for the all-too-short amount of time we get to spend with them. :wub:


Bless you for sharing your heart and your home with those too soon gone.

The love and dignity you give to your babies makes me proud to know you.

I am so sorry that it was Slick's time to go, but he ended his time with love and the knowledge that life was good.

Bless you and may the hole he leaves be filled with warm memories

Oh no! I'm so sorry for your loss, Diane. You gave him a wonderful home.

I'm sorry Diane. You did the right thing in letting him go before the quality got worse. I know that does not ease the pain, though. Take care.
