We checked him into the emerge clinic yesterday morning because he had

stopped eating, had developed very bad diarrhea and was becoming



We knew it was serious but thought we'd wait to see if he'd

respond to the intravenous meds. We spent an hour with him last night

stroking his fur and talking to him. He wasn't looking much better but he

was peaceful and his fever has broken, so we remained guardedly hopeful.


This morning at 5am they called to say he had developed an arrhythmia in his

heart and that they had just put him on pain meds. We left for the clinic

right away and let him go around 6:30am.


He fought a brave battle and while his Lymphangietasia was under control

both emerge vets felt he had developed an other more serious issue in his

intestines. Most likely cancer.


We are beyond sad - it just feels like life will never be the same.

You are right. You will never be the same. They touch us so deeply and give us so much. But your pain will change over time and the memories will keep him alive in your heart where he's always been. Godspeed sweet Walter. You'll have so much company at the bridge.

Oh Lynn, I'm so very sorry. I know how special Walter was to you-I remember reading about him on your website and seeing his gorgeous photo. Sending you many, many hugs. :grouphug:grouphug:grouphug
