Mom and I are so sad today. See, our Bootsie Bear passed away from Ehrlichia - a tick borne illness. He was an old guy - even older than me, but he hasn't lived here with mom as long as I have. It makes me sad whenever we lose one. Mom and I have been through a lot - she lost two precious pups before rescuing me, then after I came to her, we lost one of my babies the day she was born, then my Katrina Shelter buddy, Fritzie. After that, my bff Gonzo died in mom's arms, then old Gertie. Things were quiet for a year or so after Gertie died, but then my son, Boudreaux got cancer and died six weeks after being diagnosed. Shortly after that, Gabby died of a brain tumor and then Moses from lameness. Now Boots. He was one of my bff's too. We shared a yard just the two of us. We were friends. It's hard dealing with all this - for me and for mom. Momma cries and cries and then looks okay and then starts crying again. Me? I just lay around. I don't want to go near Boots' crate where he died, and I didn't want to say good-bye when Momma gave me the chance. I've just seen too many of my friends pass away. I know they're waiting for us at the Bridge, but it's hard. I miss them.
