Seminole 6/95 - 1/15/09

On March 2, 2008 A big brindle boy named Seminole walked into our lives and grabbed our heart. He has not let go yet. He was a return to the Melbourne track after being in a home for 10 years. When I saw his picture on the email I knew immediately that he needed to come to live the remainder of his time with us. At age 12 1/2 I should have known it could be sooner as opposed to later but I couldn't see that at the time. He flourished here with his fur brother and sisters. We enjoyed everyday with him. He was a gentleman, kind and loving. On Thursday, January 15,2009 we had to say goodbye to our "General" (husband's pet name for him). He had been battling weakness in his legs and on Tuesday morning he went lame. He couldn't walk without assistance and he just laid there. The vet came and made a house call to help him cross over. It was most likely a neurological disorder that she said would get worse and worse very quickly. We decided to let him go while he still had dignity and peace. My heart is crushed, he was truly my heart dog. That afternoon I came home early to spend time with him and for the first time in 2 days he got up when I came in and wagged his tail as he had done everyday. He wasn't able to meet me at the door but seeing him up and wagging make my heart leap. I know we made the right decision for him, not for us, but knowing that he was out of pain was all that mattered. I have seen day after day of someone having to say goodbye and my heart broke for them. Now I know that pain. Run free my darling big brindle boy.

Mommy and daddy miss and love you so much. Now you can enjoy your running pain free. :brokenheart

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I am sorry for your loss of your sweet boy. It sounds like he had a lot of love in his last home and that is all he would have asked for. Thank you for taking him in and showing that love to him.


Run free Seminole, run free... :gh_run
