Went to the bridge this afternoon.


I had decided it would be today or Wednesday as his walking had been getting worse. Acupuncture treatment on Tuesday didn't help much. Thursday he was tossing & pouncing on a stuffy (not very long, but he was pleased). Last night he ran the length of the yard. 3 a.m. he went out and pottied and was very unsteady. 7 a.m. had night poops (or so I thought). I cleaned him up and he slept awhile. Then he starting getting agitated because he couldn't get up. This had happened before, so I watched him a little while. It became apparent he was not going to be able to get up. Rosemary & I got him into the van. Dr. Baley gave him the shot while he was in the van so he wasn't hurt transporting him into the clinic. He went quick & very peacefully.


I am going to miss his extreme chattering excitement when I walk in the door after work tomorrow.


I hope he is chasing those squirrels and attacking any shower doors that are around the bridge :)


I only wish I could have given him some more good months.

I'm so very sorry, Diane. My prayer had been that Solo would have much, much more quality time with you. The time he did have was so rich and he knew joy and love and all the comforts he could have ever wanted. My heart and my deepest sympathies go out to you.
