Said goodbye to my best friend on Dec 23, picked him up today
On December 23rd I had to have my best friend Bruce put down because he was suffering. He was only four years old but got sick very suddenly. We thought it was just a normal bout as he only threw up once on the first two days and then on the third day it got very bad.
I took him to the emergency vet who thought he may have swallowed something but the xray showed nothing. When we described his behaviour over the past two days she thought he may have had cancer. Bruce had begun to act strange on the days prior to his death, he had to walk in a circle before going down a hallway in the house and then walk in a circle before laying down. It was very odd.
Anyways after a few more test it was determined that bacteria had gotten into his stomach and that he would not be able to recover. He was put to rest a few minutes later with myself and my mother comforting him.
Today I went and picked up the remains of my buddy, we had him cremated and he's home again.
Here is Bruce, he was a great boy:
