he has been in the vets since early this morning hooked up on IV's. all we could get him to eat yesterday was one and a half peices of toast. despite the IV's he started spiraling downwards and by 6 pm the vet called and said she did not think he would last thru the night. his bloodwork had just come back and he was in kidney shutdown.
i hurried down to the clinic to be with him when he passed away. i was able to take off his muzzle (he had already bitten one of the techs today) so blue could leave this world without being muzzle restrained...i know he liked that...he had a ton of pride.
blue was a really old dog..according to his previous owners he was 22 yrs of age. blue was a really tough old dog, he didn't take crap from anyone. and blue was a really nice old tough dog too. he loved getting hugged and petted, he liked his face to be held. he really liked the good treats we had around here and he LOVED...really LOVED.... hanging out at the barn.
rest in peace blue...we will miss you and we wish you could have stayed with us for a little longer...you really liked it here and that made all of us love you even more.
