Well, tell me, what else can go wrong????
Slugger, our dearly loved 10 year old English Bulldog passed away today,
He was fine this morning. He went out to do his usual morning ritual. Pee, poop and kick up some dirt. Nothing was out of the ordinary at all. He was sitting in the living room for a while and them walked into his favorite room in the house, the Kitchen. He was laying down completely stretched out with his frog legs behind him looking so cute as usual. I took out a few pieces of cheese to give the dogs. Bentley our GSD took a piece right away which was unusual because Slugger was always the first to line up for food. I put a piece in front of his nose.. nothing happened.. not even a twitch of his nostrils.. So, now I drop down on the floor to look at him and moved his head and nothing happened.. He just looked like he was sleeping.. My husband is especially heartbroken because he really considered him his bulldog. He always said that when he dies, (my husband that is) he wants Slugger’s ashes to be mixed with his own.
Our German Shepherd came over and licked his face as if he was kissing him goodbye. My Great Pyrenees just stood off to the side looking at us crying and sitting on the floor one last time with our dear little, well 86 lbs. is kind of little, boy.
Slugger you were most certainly one of a kind and you will be in our hearts forever.
We’ll see you at the bridge one day soon. In the meantime have fun with the rest of your brothers and sisters already up there. We love you.
And last but not least, always remember Slugger's words of advice to everyone.
DON'T EAT THE YELLOW SNOW...
