Now I lay me down to sleep

I am so sad. Last evening we had to put our Bode to rest. He had done okay over the weekend, but yesterday took a turn for the worse. He was having so much trouble breathing he could not lay down comfortably any longer. He wasn’t eating, nor drinking. His belly was distended and causing him much discomfort. We had to make the difficult decision not to let him suffer any longer. It’s hard to make that decision. Should we wait another day? But if we do and he’s much worse, is that fair to him? We did not want to see him suffer total distress, so we let him go. I will miss his sweet, smiling face.

When I find the words I will write him a tribute. I just can’t do it now. I feel emotionally and physically drained after the stress of watching him go up and down over the past two weeks, and over the past few days especially. Pretty much numb.

Rest well, sweet JoJo. We’ll miss you so.
