Big Apology for missing last weeks FPF, My heart was just not into it and I couldn't get myself away from what was going on in my real world. My 10 year old boxer boy Chad became very ill and after 5 days of ups and downs it was time to face the truth. He was not going to bounce back from what ever had a hold on him.
After loosing Slim (my horse) this winter this was a real blow not Chad too, but he was suffering and as hard as the decisions was I knew what needed to be done. So Sunday my daughter, hubby and I took Chad to the Vet for that last visit. We stayed and held him and while he went to sleep said our final goodbyes.
Coming home without him was heartbreaking but not as difficult as trying to comfort his companion Dakota (our 9 year old female boxer) who hasn't stopped looking for her best friend. I wanted Chad to pass at home surrounded by all his fur buddies I think this might have helped those left behind make sense of his passing, however it just wasn't right to make his suffer any longer. He will be coming home in a few days we had him cremated so we can bury him at home with all the other critters we have laid to rest.
