I Lost My Best Friend Today
September 23, 2014 § 12 Comments
This blog will be different …no behind the scenes, no information on how I did the images, just a tribute to my very best friend. Today started like any other day. Zeus barks to let me know that he has to do his “business”. He walks down to his “favorite place” to poop, and then from a distance I realize he’s in some kind of distress. He’s almost 13 and he’s been getting constipated at times. I thought that might be the case, but he had to sit and rest halfway back to the house. He got back and was really distressed so we called our vet and took him right up. Turns out his stomach “flipped” and he was bloating up before our eyes. I never saw an animal in such distress. The chance that he’d survive a surgery was almost nil because of his age, so we put him to sleep. I mentioned he was my best friend, and I mean it. I once saw a saying on our vet’s wall that said “a dog is the only thing that love’s you more than he loves himself”. I know that was true about my Zeus. Anyhow, I hope you indulge me this bit of sadness. I’m sitting here writing this and thinking it’s getting dark outside and I have to take him out for his evening walk…I’m still in a bit of shock. Let me leave you with a couple of images that were taken in much happier times.
