I Miss Him!!!

This past weekend, we were in Oxford for a wedding that Kent was in. I took the dogs to the vet to be boarded on Thurs afternoon since we were leaving at 5 on Friday morning. On Saturday, at 8am, I received a phone call from the vet that Gus had passed away sometime during the night. No explanation, no one has any idea what happened. They were there at midnight, and everything was fine. The first person got there at 7am and found him. I am just incredibly heartbroken! I didn't have anything to do all day on Saturday after I got the call, so I just laid in the bed. I am just in shock!!! He wasn't sick, he was acting like his spunky hyper self when I dropped him off on Thursday. It's just such a hard pill to swallow that I will never see him again. Our other dog-Frankie, is pitiful. As soon as we got home yesterday, she went straight to his cage, sniffed it and jumped up on the back of the chair. She just really doesn't know what to do. They were always playing tug of war with the rope or fighting each other for one of our affections.

It just sucks and I am soooooo sad!!!! It feels a smidge better to type some of this out too. So thanks for listening to my grief...
