no further bad dreams so that was good...
angel goes in to the vet today. yesterday she suddenly developed a large swelling on her face...abcessed tooth?
it was very quiet and peaceful here last night. fletch is out on a family meet/greet trial with one of our vets. he better be on his best behavior and not a maniacal mouthing, jumping, barking puppy dickhead.
mumford took over snoopy's pillow by my head last night. still i noticed the loss. the pillows had mumford, mini and nicki but sadly no snoop dog.
you know...squirt came in here back in 2006..he was 4 and a half. so why is it that 7 years later i still see that sweet little dog as a young innocent boy? he is still so cheerfully childlike, not at all like a mature almost senior dog. methinks for some reason squirt is my K9 version of peter pan. i just can't see him growing into a little old man.
he's over 11 now? how did that happen? and how does he manage to stay forever young?????
i don't get it.
laura called yesterday to tell me her foster cat bobby brown was reaching the end. he has been in kidney failure since last fall. she booked his euth. appointment for this afternoon. when bobby came in, he was an owner surrender in 2009. if i remember correctly, it was something stupid like the kids were grown and had moved away. they were winding down in preparation for retirement travel...they didn't think he would live that long and his continued existence was screwing up their plans. i remember not wanting to take him in and his owner giving me a hard time of it. he was gone one way or another..surrender to rescue or euthanization..it really did not matter as long as he was gone. i think he was around 12 at the time. they told me he was a black and white cat, yet when he arrived he was a tabby and white. how ignorable does a cat have to be if not even his family knew what color his fur was? i felt truly sorry for him..a life without any value at all.
peaceful final journey bobby, and big hugs to laura too.i am glad he spent the last of his days in a home where he was well loved.
