Today---Is the last day I will be with my owners/family/friends

January 8th 2010 8:31 am

I have been feeling better and thought I was making much progress than before. I have been well until Wednesday night (Jan. 6th) when I had 2 seizure's. The last seizure that night was longer than the first one. My mommy and daddy was petting me, calming me down, relaxing me & talking to me while I was trying to get over the seizure. I believe I had a seizure Thursday during the day. My daddy came home from lunch and I had goo on my face and blanket just like the night before. My mommy and daddy came home that night (Thurs. Jan. 7th) that's when things went haywire! The other dogs would come near me and my family members would come near me......all I could do was bark/cry out loud...not my normal bark. Even when there was no one around me.... I'd stare out around the room and continue to bark. This was my way of letting them know that I can longer go on. I can no longer walk without the help of my family to get me up, I've been eating to have food in my stomache. They put me in my kennel with the blankets under me. I went to sleep. They checked on me at their normal time 12:00/1:00 in the morning like they usually do since I've been sick. I woke up Friday morning the same way I went to sleep....the same, no progress. Today at 3:45 I have an appointment at the vets. The fighter in me....I've won some and lost some. I will be put down and rest, run with my brother and sisters up in in the fields. Thank you my owners/family for taking such good care for me till the end. Carrying me when I could no longer walk outside yet helping me walking to gain the strength.... I love you my family and friends. Goodbye for now. Love and Peace always. Your close to my heart always for your nurturing souls.
