Arrival Story: We adopted him from small shelter in Indiana and he'll be making his way home over the weekend. He's matted and stinky so his first stop was a trip to the vet and tomorrow he goes right to the groomer. Yuki is staying with my mother for a few days until his trip home. He's got a few minor medical problems, but all in all fairly good health for a dog his age. He is at least 10, but we are calling September 1st his b-day since that is the day he should arrive.
Bio: Yuki arrived and has been fitting in OK with the other dogs. He's a sweet and playful dog and acts so much younger than his age. His skin is healing and his eyes and ears are clearing up. It's sad that such a sweetie ended up in a shelter at his age. I'm just glad we were able to adopt him and offer him a new retirement home. Please spay and neuter your pets to keep the shelters from getting so full. Adopt a shelter pet!! They are the best!
On Friday my ashes came home. It is always one of those bittersweet times when the family is happy to have you home but saddened that it will never be in the physical sense again. I am now watching over my handsome Navy boy while he serves his country. I will watch over him and keep him safe during his military career. Happy Veteran's Day
Just before noon, Yuki peacefully went to the Rainbow Bridge. He was held in Bob's arms as he crossed over. The little old man who came and became a member of our family will never be forgotten.
He is reunited with Chester and Bruno and he got to meet Kammie, Tara, and Sandi as well. Tonight he can celebrate with his family, his dogster pals, and his beloved Lola who were lovingly there to help him start his new journey.
Tomorrow Yuki will make his journey to the Rainbow Bridge. He has progressively gotten worse and recently has also started having seizures. With a very heavy heart we decided we can no longer let him suffer. After losing Chester earlier this year to cancer, we probably put this decision off longer than we should have. Yuki has always been a strong boy, to see him now so frail and weak with very limited mobility has been rough. When we adopted Yuki in 2007 he was at least 10 years old at the time. We promised him a retirement home and hope we filled those needs. He attached to us quickly and we have enjoyed 6 years with our little old man. He will be very missed. My heart will break yet again
