4lane passed peacefully away this afternoon.

it was a good death. renee brought him to the clinic and i got off work early and angelina met us there too.
we sat on the floor of the exam room and renee told us what a good weekend he had had.
4lane was so cute, he would stand in front of renee and get some kisses and loving and his head would start wobbling to the right. then suddenly he would see angelina and wobble over to her to spend some time. his head would keep wobbling sideways til he could see over his shoulder and there i was against the far wall. up he would go to toddle over my way to say hello. then he would see renee again..and then angelina and finally back to me...over and over again.
you see, 4lane loved all of us...we were all his good friends. we could have stuffed that small room with all of the saints folks and 4lane would have gone to everyone, his loving family is huge.
i am not any more reverent when they are dying then when they are alive. i told the vet 4lane asshole stories and we chuckled with fond memories of this so sweet and innocent dog and some of his dastardly ways.
like how he would go in for the kill on the other dogs with his head tilting sideways and suddenly because of gravity, his head and his shoulder were skimming the floor and all he could reach as he got to them were their sensitive little feet.
4lane died amidst smiles and tears and a whole lot of love.
rest in peace little wobble-dog, you are forever safe and loved inside us all.
