Wow - yesterday was just crazy!!! I loved all the cards everyone has made...You all have rocked my day - BIG TIME!!! I'm still trying to catch up with everyone....!!!
Today - is a little different....My dear Rico - our Boxer - who was just 2 month shy of his 14th Birthday - took a tumble for the worse!!!
It kinda started a couple off days ago when we noticed that his fur has change - being flaky and not shiny anymore...he still ate, drank just fine plus he slept a lot anyway. Yesterday he still had breakfast and everything seemed fine until in the later afternoon.....he went outside and was walking around until I saw him collapse - we picked him back up and he was fine....in the evening it happened again and he didn't have the strength anymore to get up - so we knew his time has come.
I was hoping he would peacefully fall a sleep, but his heart was still going strong just his circulate system didn't work anymore. So we rushed him to the vet this morning and he confirmed that the time has come to let Rico go.....We had to put him to sleep!!!
As you can imagen last night and this morning were pretty rough for me/us and I have a very big hole in my heart right now and I don't know if it ever can be filled again!!!
So I was not kidding about the emotional roller coster ride - one day good - one day bad and I know life is full of crazy rides!!! I'll catch you all later.....
