Hi everyone...or anyone who might read this. I'm playing at the Rainbow Bridge - and checking in on my Mommy & Dad who seem to be really sad since I left.
On July 30th they brought me to the doctor's and they told us I had a bad disease called chronic renal failure - but I felt great - I was still happy and playing and eating - but my back was a bit sore. My Mommy did everything in her power to save me. I had to stay in the ICU for 2 weekends - they filled me with fluids and medications - all the girls there loved me 'cause I let them do anything they wanted without a fuss.
My Mom was doing IV fluids at home (she's a nurse) and the best part was every single day she told me what a good boy I was and how much she loved me over and over again (well she did that anyway, but I was sick, so it made me feel better). Everyday she cooked meals for me like meatloaf and barley with chicken - no more of the bagged food for me. And everyday my Daddy took me for a ride in the truck - no walks for me!
But I guess the disease was bad and it made me feel pretty gross 2 weeks ago. My Mommy promised she wouldn't let me suffer, so on Tuesday when I started to barf, she got me medication, but then on Wednesday, I couldn't sit still for more than 10 minutes. I did get to spend my last night on earth in my Mommy's arms. She held me so tight and told me how everything would be okay.
We went for my last car ride to the nice people who looked after me before on September 21st. I knew it was time to say goodbye - which made me sad too, but I still wagged my tail to everyone there that day. I kept hearing my Mommy say how it's not fair for me, 'cause I'm only 3 and a half. Her and Daddy held me so close and talked to me for a long time that morning. My Mommy was crying alot too and she even smelled my feet one last time and said I had popcorn toes.
As soon as they gave me the needle, I felt SO much better right away. I saw this big rainbow and there was Drake - my step daddy waiting for me. I was SO happy to see him - I didn't get to see him since May when he left us. I made the sunshine outside for my Mom & Dad - 'cause it was dark out when we got there.
I've been here for 11 days now and my Mommy & Daddy are still pretty sad - I can see them crying and hugging alot. But now they have more time for my fur momma Deuce - I guess it's her turn to be spoiled - but I can't wait to see them all again.
I just want you to know that i'm okay up here - but I gotta go now - it's time to eat a frisbee and after that Drake's gonna lick my ears!!
Miss you all,
