Saying goodbye is never easy.
Today we had to say goodbye to Rudee.
Dad picked Grandma (his Mom) up first thing this morning and at 8:45, Dad, Mom, Grandma, Macy, and Rudee left for the vet. Macy didn’t go in until after everything was done.
Mom said she’s not sure if Macy knows/understands. When Jamison passed away, it was obvious she knew. She cried, laid down next to him, and protected his body, growling at me when I came over to sniff. Mom thinks Macy may have been too distracted with everything else because she loves being at the vet so much.
Mom had a much harder time saying goodbye than she expected she would. When Rudee was originally scheduled to go to the Bridge on 12/23, Mom wasn’t even going to go into the room with Dad and Grandma because she said she couldn’t go through that again. After taking care of him and getting close to him for the last few weeks, she couldn’t let him go without her there.
Mom told me that Dad and Grandma sat in the chairs and she laid on the floor with Rudee. She held his head and whispered lots of loving things in his ear. She told me the medicine worked really fast.
I’m sad my cousin is gone but I’m happy he’s not in pain anymore. Last night was really bad for him. I know he’s with Khia and my Grandpa (Dad’s Dad). I bet they’re eating LOTS of treats and getting really dirty.
I’ll do my best to take care of Macy, Rudee! Please give my Khia ear licks for me.
