It’s finally here – 2018!
Molly and I almost didn’t make it to 2018 because our neighbors scared us half to death with fireworks.
You can’t tell from the pic but I was shaking WORSE than a leaf! It was awful.
Before the fireworks started, Molly was super excited about NYE:
Mom gave her a whole Trazodone so she wasn’t shaking and barely drooled, but she did hide when the fireworks really started booming.
The night was definitely worse for Rudee. He got sick to his tummy and things have kind of gone downhill from there. In fact, he’s no longer eating, his fever is back up to 105 and he is having a hard time breathing tonight. First thing tomorrow morning, Mom and Dad will be taking him to the vet to say goodbye.
We were lucky enough to get another week with him. During this past week, he was spoiled with love and was allowed to eat treats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Not just dog treats but cheeseburgers, chicken, and hot dogs – LOTS of hot dogs!
Macy has been going between trying to get him to play, avoiding him, and simply being with him:
She’s going to be so lost without him. Mom will be taking her to the vet with them so Macy can say goodbye to him after it’s done. Mom and Dad think this is very important because when he was at the vet 2 weeks ago, Macy was going crazy looking for him everywhere. She needs to know he’s not coming home.
To try to prepare for this big change, Mom and Dad have been letting Molly out with Macy under careful supervision:
Hopefully, in time, the 2 of them can learn to be friends again. This is already a big improvement.
We know that this isn’t great news for the 1st day of the year but we’ve always been very honest with you. This is hard, sad, and unexpected but we still have hope that 2018 will be a good year.
To you, our friends, we wish you all that is wonderful for 2018.
