Bode isn’t doing very well…

It’s sad to report, but after a rally on his part over the Thanksgiving holiday, our Bode is back to not doing well. We knew it had to happen, yet we had a little hope he could hang on a bit longer. We can tell the fluid from the tumors are filling up around his lungs and his breathing is more labored. The same with his tummy. He looks more round than usual due to fluids. He can still give me that smile and wag that silly tail of his though. He’s not eating very much but this morning he did manage a few biscuits with gusto. Today he has a little bit of a bloody nose and that’s not a good sign. He hasn’t told me yet that he’s ready to go, so we’ll just keep on giving him lots of love and attention until we can do nothing else for him. It’s going to be so hard to say good-bye.

In his honor, I’ve changed my header to a photo I took of him last week. Isn’t he handsome?


He is very handsome.  My heart goes out to you all ... having to say goodbye to a beloved dog is one of the worst things in the world.

Looking at his face, you are quite lucky to have had him in your life.

Warmest regards,

He IS a handsome one, isn’t he!  What a face…I want to give him noogies and kisses all over.
Yes, he will let you know.  When we spend years with our four legged ones, and share tons of love, we just know.  There is a language that is not dog, or cat, or English…it is Love.
My thoughts are with Bode and his family.
Give him a noogie, skritch and a kiss from me?
