This morning when I woke up, the first thing I did was look for my dog, Princeton. (I have written several posts about him). When I found him, he was out in the middle of my yard in a daze. I called for him and he recognized me and came over to the steps. Once I got him into the house, he wouldn't/couldn't move and was breathing hard.
He has been doing so very well. In fact, I cut down on his dog food, he started losing some weight and has been able to get around much easier. I felt like we had gotten over the hill. Until this morning.
I immediately made an appointment with the veternarian and my friend and I were able to get him into my car.
There was only one thing the vet could do for him and that was to relieve him of suffering. Sadly, he couldn't relieve me of mine.
My heart is broken. This morning, Princeton went over the Rainbow Bridge and is now running through the beautiful green fields.
I will miss my dear loyal friend.
