|Thanking all of you for your kind words and help through this horrific time. It always lingered in the back of my mind...brain tumor....but I prayed it wasn't. He had Myosites but it was brought on by the tumor...not an auto immune condition.
I don't know what I would have done without this site and all the wonderful people I have met here...and their beautiful dogs. You were with me each step of the way and I will never forget your help and compassion. I will continue to pray for all the sick dogs on here. Blue was also lucky to have you. You guided me through how to keep him comfortable and give him the best possible last days here on earth.
My last words to him were "Go get Sophie!" Sophie was my neighbors Great Dane. She passed 6 mths ago from bone cancer. She was Blues best friend. She looked like his Mom and met him when we got him at 8 weeks old. I think he took her on as his surrogate Mom. He loved her so much and she taught him better than anything I could do and better than the obedience puppy classes we brought him to. I was there to give Sophie her goodbye kiss and Sophie's owner came with us to say goodbye to him as well. He knew we were there...we looked into my eyes with understanding and love. When Sophie's owner went up to him he actually wagged his tail in joy....like he always did when he saw her.
Broken hearts all around in this house...and this neighborhood.. He was my golf cart co pilot and people loved seeing him towering over me next to me on our rides. Four years was not long enough...but they were four of the best years of our life. I'll be forever grateful to Blue for bringing us so much love, fun, companionship, and pure happiness. We were so lucky to have him.
