Lost Friend

Yesterday Clay had a bad seizure. I've never witnessed that and it was really hard. We took him to the vet to recheck his blood. His numbers were getting lower so we knew there was something wrong. They decided to send it away for further testing.

He was tired and the vet said that he would be cause of the seizure. He did enjoy some new jerky treats I got yesterday for him. First time all month he really enjoyed a treat.

Early this morning I heard a little whine. So I got up to check on him. He was losing his battle. My husband and I pet him and told him we didn't want him to be in pain any longer. It was so hard to witness but I'm glad we could be with him in his final moments. Reminding him how much we loved him for the 12 years we've been his family.

Our other dog Izzy sniffed him and I was trying to explain it to her. It's so hard to watch her grieve. I know as much as my heart hurts her little heart is more than likely feeling that same way.

Jeremiah and I had a good cry this morning together. Brought up a lot of memories. Clay was a puppy mill dog and had a lot of problems with other people but we did the best we could to give him a happy home. He didn't have to live outside. He got blankets to hide under and chewies all the time. I hope he enjoyed his life with us. We sure enjoyed knowing him.

  6. I am sure he had a wonderful life with you! I am sorry for your loss! We had to let my mom's little 18 year old poodle go a couple weeks ago, so I know how you're feeling. I did the same thing!

    Hugs and prayers!
