We had to say goodbye to Drake this morning. He has had a lot of health problems for months, was deaf, blind and his arthritis was really bad. He had been able to get around despite walking a little sideways until Sunday when his back legs didn’t want to work. Monday morning , I had to leave to bring David to his colonoscopy and we feared coming home to find him gone, but he waited. He seemed to perk up a little last night and was eating well and could walk a little but would flop over after a short time. We couldn’t allow him to suffer so we made the difficult decision this morning to let him go.
We have had him for 5 years, but he was older when he came to us so I am not sure of his age. I am sure that we miss him terribly.
I loved those white whiskers against his black fur.
I will be here for the fill-ins Friday. Blogging is the only thing keeping me sane right now with all this loss in my life.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
