I worked in the Animal Emergency Clinic near my home. One of the doctors there had Indy's mom. I thougth very highly of Dumplin' and needless to say when those pups arrived I was in love! I picked Indy for his sense of adventure. He was the first pup to learn how to escape out of their enclosure. He just wanted to explore his surroundings; thus his name Independent Cruiser!

With deep regret I had to let my dear, sweet, red dog go to the rainbow bridge. He was diagnosed with pleural effusion on Saturday April 11. We decided his last days should be filled with his favorite things as long as he was up to it. He played in the creek at home cooked meals and on his last night with us he chose to sleep in the bed. On Wed the 15th we woke he was spry and ready to go.
We had a family day with our son and came home that evening.
All the dogs went to the creek to play; Indy had a great time. He ate dinner and then began having difficulty breathing. I knew it was time.
We took him to the ER where I work and were able to let him go with dignity and knowing his last days were the best.
I don't know how to express the grief and the sadness. There is a huge hole in my heart and sometimes it feels like it is hard to breath. I loved that dog with all my heart. He was there before I was married, hell he went on the honeymoon! My sweet boy. I love and I miss you!!
