My Friend Went to The Rainbow Bridge

It is with a heavy heart that I write my diary today. Yesterday I lost a very good friend. You may have remembered that I had asked for prayers last year for Aunt Carla's Greyhound, GT. He had a raging infection in his abdominal cavity and had to have major surgery. He pulled through and was doing well until about a month ago. He started to have problems breathing and was coughing up blood. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and was put on antibiotics. He seemed to be doing better until Saturday night. Aunt Carla came home to find him in respiratory distress. She rushed him to Tufts Veterinary Hospital at 3 in the morning! The doctors put him in an oxygen tent but he still couldn't breath! They made the decision to put him on a ventilator so the machine could breath for him. Aunt Carla called my mom and mom and dad rushed down to Tufts yesterday afternoon. GT was sedated and in ICU. GT's doctor was still hopeful. Mom and dad both said prayers and gave him Reiki. It was hard seeing him like that. I wasn't allowed to go but mom kept me posted on his condition. Last night around 8PM, Aunt Carla called to say that GT had just passed away. I felt him go and let out a howl that scared mom and dad. I will miss my friend. We will all miss him very much. You can see GT in 2 of my video's.

On a happier note, I was in another contest again. I haven't heard who the winner was yet. The pet store near our house was having a "Dress Your Dog For St. Patrick's Day" contest. I don't have anything green except one bandana that has watermelons on it. That wasn't very St. Patrick's. Mom and dad bought me a head piece that had shamrocks sticking up like antenna. I looked more like a bug than a dog. They also bought me a shamrock necklace. Everyone at the store made a fuss over me and took my picture. They said I was the best one they had seen all day and that most dogs just came in with green collars on. I am competing against 3 or 4 stores so we shall see. Daddy took pictures so I am sure they will be posted on my Dogster page soon. Mom and dad are too upset right now to think about it.
