    Re: My Treasure

    I can't tell you all how much your thoughts and well wishes mean to me. Like I said earlier, I'm not usually a particularly emotional guy, but Jerry's the game changer for me. Just knowing that you guys sincerely care about his well being means a lot.

    Yesterdays visit rendered another positive report. His lungs have cleared more, but still not completely, so the cardio put him on another med, in addition to the three he's already on. She said that as strong as he is and as well as he's doing, she's not inclined to get them totally clear, since the meds can stress liver and kidneys. She also said that, were he human, he'd be bed-ridden, but he just bounces around like a 4 year old. His blood work actually showed improvement in both kidney and liver function, which they weren't even expecting. It's all just a testament to his strength, resilience and loyalty. Each time he's had an incident, I've always told him, "stay with daddy, buddy, you gotta stay with daddy".

    And, that's just what he's doing.

    Jerry has taken a turn for the... as bad as it can get.

    I took him in a month early for his cardio follow-up, because he seemed a little lethargic and was increasingly less interested in food. His - God bless her - cardiologist said, his heart and lungs look the same as they did 6 months ago. She talked about his other symptoms possibly being due to a bowel obstruction, but also possibly pancreatitis. She recommended we see how he did through the weekend, because he's always proven to be so strong, but if he didn't rally, bring him back Monday.

    By 1000 Sunday, he was spiraling downward. I called and decided to take him in for emergency evaluation.

    My friends, I just left him and it doesn't look good. He probably won't make it through the night. His cardiologist actually drove into the hospital on Sunday to look at him and referred him to the best internal medicine guy they have, "he's been at this longer than I've been alive."

    Please, leave me out of this. But, whatever it is you do; pray, dance in the moonlight, whisper to the rivers... please do it for Jerry. I'm fortunate that everyone at Virginia Tech 'gets him', recognizes him for just how special and extraordinary a being he is and that he has the very best care available on the planet. Just please, send a little good will his way. He is so weary from this fight.

    Thank you.

    Words aren't enough. May he go gentle into the good night. And my heart and prayers goes out to you who will learn to live without his unconditional love and companionship. Some dogs are truly once in a lifetime companions.

    My life companion, my most beloved friend, my constant, my touchstone, gift and treasure, passed last night. If love could have saved him, he would have lived forever. Rest in peace, Baby Boy. Daddy loves you.

    Sorry to hear that man.
    You never think of all this when you bring home a puppy... that in ~15 years you're going to be pretty attached and he's going to be at the end of his life. My dog died a couple years back and I don't think I'll be getting another.
