Title: Our Texan..............
Post by: BBF on February 24, 2012, 10:48:55 AM
........Max, is gone :'(
Monday was a sad day in the BBF's house.  Mamma's little boy had his last ride to the Vet. Diabetes, big time. We found out about it two weeks ago and his Mommy hoped he would last a little longer. Nope, didn't happen. He was in so much discomfort om Monday looking for us for help and there wasn't any.

The house is empty only his pawprints were visible in the snow and thankfully we had rain last night. He was only 7 years old and came out of a shelter from Bastrop County TX.

He is very much missed.

I feel for you BBF. I had to put one down many years ago, one of the hardest things I ever had to do. Still brings me down a bit whenever I come across his favorite ball.

Sorry to hear that BBF.  :'(   They become a member of the family and it's always hard when something happens to them.
 
I'm probably going to be a basket case when something finally happens to Mongo.  :(

The phone rings this AM. The wife picks it up and listens for a few seconds, says "Thank You" and bursts into sobs and tears.

We have some sick friends(cancer) and much older relatives so I asked rather loudly. OK!! WHO DIED ??

She shakes her head. " Nobody Died."

More sobs etc.

I'm waiting !

She: The Vet called. Max's remains are ready to be picked up. :sad: :sad:

 I go and get them.
They are in a very nice wooden box and not in an urn as we expected.

I'm thinking, where to put him, it is a bigger box then I would have thought a box needed to be for a 20 lb  friend.

I took the box to my Sister in Law.

When the Missus is ready ( if ever)  :-\  we'll have him back to our home.

I looked at the place my beloved cat Mowgli's urn is kept and saw the note with the Date on it. He left us almost 21 years ago. Now I'm getting chocked up. :sad:

Arrgh !!

On a lighter and brighter note and not that I didn't expect it.
