Today we had to make the most difficult decision a family member ever has to make. Dexter had been having more difficulty with his spinal stenosis and lost both bowel and bladder control as well as the loss of his good leg. We couldn't let him suffer any more so we decided last night to have him put to sleep.
The people at Concord Vet were so kind and helpful and caring. THey didn't rush us in any way and were so gentle with Dexter. When the time came, he passed away very peacefully and without any obvious struggle.
Today is a pretty rough day for all of us, especially Levi who is grieving too. I think he knew what was going on as he stayed by Dexter's side most of the night. When Vicki and I were sitting with Dexter, we were both crying and Levi came over and was licking off the tears. Now, he is just laying on the floor mourning as well.
Dexter, we all love you so very much and you brought so much hapiness into our lives, as I am sure we did for you too. You have always been such a loyal, loving, caring and smart dog and we will miss you terribly. But we know that you are in Heaven now and there are plenty bunnies and squerrils to chase.
