The topic: He’s gone


He was doing so much better yesterday, then this morning…..

He could barely stand.  He was so tired.

We took him in.  We parked the car outside of the clinic, and still weren’t sure we were doing the right thing. Brian opened the carrier and we both talked to Ben. He sat in the back of the carrier, not making a move to come out, not showing much curiousity in what was around him. I told Brian I’d do whatever he wanted.  He watched Benny, turned the car off, then shut the carrier door.

We took Benny inside.  The vet agreed, it was his time.  His body was so acidic from the kidney failure that he had ulcers in his mouth, on his tongue.

We left without him. We should get his ashes back in a week to ten days.

A sad, sad day for us.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Here’s a thought that might brighten your hearts a bit, though: I’ll bet your mother is going to just love the little fellow!!! smile <3 <3 <3

I’m sorry. It’s never easy, no matter how old or sick they are.

I agree with Mary! Your mother is probably having a great time with him.
