Another Bruno update
Monday, October 05, 2015
Well, my sweet boy is still with me, but can no longer get up on his own or stand to eat & drink. I bring him his food & water to where he lays. I carry him out and hold him up for him to wee and poo and believe it or not, he still takes care of that business, but it does wear us both out! He is getting weaker and weaker. It will not be long till I let him go to Rainbow Bridge. How I pray there is a heaven and a Rainbow Bridge. What a disappointment this life would be without that. My friends, I cry every day. I can't even imagine my life without this dear one. I reckon I shall become completely blind from tears. He's 16 ( I think) but before him my pups only lived to 11 years. He is soooo much more than a pet. I don't know that I can even try to explain that. Suffice it to know that when I was in a very emotionally weak state, he came into my life and I really feel like he saved me. I was wallowing in vats and vats of self pity. I don't want to go back to that dark place, but I know he nor any of us can keep going indefinitely. It will be bitter sweet when he leaves me. At least he won't be trapped in his little body any more. For now, he still really loves to eat! Bless his heart! Taking it one day at a time!! It'll be soon, though. He's so weak, but still has a little of enjoyment of life left! He will tell me beyond a shadow of a doubt. I feel it will be very soon.
I am supposed to be doing the C to 5K but I'm just going to withdraw from the team. I'm also involved with the 5% challenge that I've not had a heck of a lot of fitness minutes to add to that pot either! (Sorry RWJ&G's.....I'll be back on track tomorrow if not sooner). Some of these challenges are no fun when they are not current and no one is actually "driving" as it were. I've been slack on the walking b/c the weather was so wet and awful! I went to the gym once then had one drizzly day I walked & then I just quit! My wt. is showing that I quit! So now..... I really didn't expect today to be so nice! I may get out and get a walk in before dark, but missed my morning window. DS says he has to cook and so won't walk with me ( right now, at least) I'll go a little later and hopefully he will feel somewhat 0bligated to accompany me! hehe I fear I be on me own!
Anyway, just wanted to bring y'all ( who may be interested) on Bruno, my sweet Beagle mix boy! I have no doubt that if it weren't for the degenerative nature of whatever is wrong with him, he'd live a good long time yet. He still has those perky little puppy ears! Ate his supper tonight with gusto!!
Thanks for checking in! Nice to know I have such a great and supportive group of friends here! ((HUGS)) to you all!! Bruno sends a 'woof'. (He'd do it out loud, but that's one of the things he doesn't do any more.)
