his bloodwork came back late this afternoon...his liver was toast. it could have been hepatitis or an underlying cancer but whatever it was, it wasn't good and i decided not to put him thru a bunch of diagnostics and treatments when he felt pretty terrible and it was unlikely to get any better for him.
i had to go out on an emergency visit to see a client so dave and isabelle waited at the clinic for me after closing.....it was a very peaceful and gentle death, he slipped away with a soft sigh.
yoshi was old...i have no idea how old..but my guess would be at least 16 and maybe even older than that. he was totally blind, he was completely deaf and his quality of life since his last eye surgery removal a few months ago hasn't been as good as i had hoped it would be.
he was a very old and very frail little sweet dog who couldn't hear or see anything....i loved him.
rest in peace yoshi-mon, you will be so greatly missed.
