Giselle's Diary

Today is the saddest day of my life

Today my older brother Bogart died. He is a chocolate Lab and was 12 years old. Bogart's back legs had been paralyzed ever since I knew him (over 2 years) but he was strong on his front legs & could even run by dragging the back ones behind him. He has been in kinda poor health but he stayed strong cause he liked to play with his little dogs - me, Homer & Coco. He's been getting alot worse in the last few weeks & would have trouble breathing when he came in from outside. Today he had a heatstroke and a seizure but he was in such bad shape anyway we just knew he couldn't make it through. He was struggling to breath & his tongue was hanging out & his pupils were dilated & fixed. He was completely limp when we took him to the emergency clinic & they put him to sleep. My mama got really sad & started sobbing because they gave him the shot without us being in the room with him to say goodbye, sweet Bogart, we loved you dearly. We couldn't have had a sweeter boy - he wouldn't even hurt a fly. When Homer & I came home from Ryan's we looked everywhere for him but couldn't find him. We couldn't understand what Mama was saying. I don't know that word "dead". When Mama is sad, it makes me sad too so I have to lie in her lap & lick her arms. Maybe it will make her feel a little better.
