Lobo will be passing on Monday

The time has come for Lobo to pass to the next life. Although he had been scheduled several times before and made recoveries, it is no longer the case. He has now begun losing his ability to stand properly on his front legs (he will just fall over) and can barely eat properly when lying down. He is on pain meds and he sleeps most of the time now. I keep him washed and cleaned as he cannot go outside. We are just waiting now for the doctor to stop by on Monday evening.

It has been a long journey and one I've been so scared to face. But I know in my heart it is what must be done. He cannot suffer any longer. My mom died in January when he was scheduled again but I cancelled - couldn't have two deaths in one week - and then he started acting better.

But I believe time has now caught up with his body to the point of no return. I see his face each day now and wish it was already Monday so he wouldn't be in pain any longer. He is unhappy yet happy to be next to us. He is no longer living but existing. And that is the time I must let him go and say goodbye to my friend and my dog child.

So please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. My baby is going to the other side. And I'm very saddened but at the same time I have relief in my heart that he will no longer be tied down to a body that will not work for him anymore.

Hugs to you all and thanks in advance as I will be on and off the computer for the next few days.

God bless.

Re: Lobo will be passing on Monday

Robert, you and Lobo will be in my thoughts. We recently went thru this with Clover, so I do know how you feel. Just be comforted to know he gave you a great time on this earth and he will be soon free of pain and worry. You must have done something very right to give him such a long life! My first GSD was born on 2/9/83, passed in '95. Lobos will go to the bridge while Stomper is celebrating his day of birth on earth...
The unfortunate thing about our pups is they just don't live long enough. Hugs to you both.
My sympathies to you as well, in the loss of your mother.

Re: Lobo will be passing on Monday

Robert-

My heart goes out to you and Lobo. It is a loving and selfless thing you are doing for your friend. They trust us to love them even when it breaks our heart. I will most definitely say prayers for you and Lobo. I wish you both peace and comfort on this journey. Thank you for loving him. I'm glad you were able to find each other in this crazy world I truly believe our love and friendship continue on and I'm sure you will meet again.

Re: Lobo will be passing on Monday

I'm so incredibly sorry. I don't know what to say. I'll be thinking about you and Lobo.

Cherish all of your good memories together and know you are doing what is best for him.
