Today we had to say goodbye to our sweet Trigger. This was the hardest decision I've ever had to make, & definitely the most difficult post. He was the best, happiest, sweetest dog. We got him for Hannah when she was 2, and he was the best brother, & she's been the best sister. Our hearts are broken. But our sweet boy is no longer suffering, so that puts us at peace. He's now running across the rainbow bridge, and I'm just hoping my Daddy was there to greet him. Rest in peace sweet boy. A piece of my heart will stay with you, until we meet again. There will never be another dog like you. I love you so much sweet angel! xoxoxo

We also saw this little family of ducks in the river today! I love nature!

Not a great pic, but we saw a big pod of Manatees in Bay, heading toward Dog River! About 8-10, we couldn't get exact count, but 2 were tagged. Tulip goes crazy when she sees them in the water!!

We took Trigger on the boat today! He hasn't been in about a year. He was so happy! We had plenty of cushion in his wagon, so he stayed comfortable.

We went for a roll around the yard this afternoon. He's such a sweet, happy boy! I love him so much!

The vet visit went pretty good! He has lost 6 lbs in the past 2 wks, which is all muscle mass, but his heart and lungs sound good! He got to sniff a bunch of dogs in the waiting room, which made him real happy! And all the humans thought his wheels were pretty cool!

My sweet boy hasn't even attempted walking the past few days. His whole body kind of goes limp even when using his HelpEmUp harness. He's now too heavy for me to carry him out and hold him up to go potty. So now, he's laying on his dog bed, wearing a diaper, and I lift him up to eat, and roll him over from time to time, and change him. This is so hard to watch him decline in this manner. I love him so much, and he's been the best dog ever. We'll continue hospice care for him as long as we can, and as long as he can do it. He has some reflexes, but his legs will not work anymore, and his neck seems to be affected now too. We're pretty certain it is degenerative myelopathy. This is the hardest time in a Fur-mommy's life! I don't know how or when to say good bye to him.

Trigger got to roll down the pier, and around the yard today! He was happy to be included in the pack again.

My sweet Marley is staying at the Vet tonight to have surgery on a torn CCL tomorrow morning. She's actually torn the CCL in both rear legs, and has a ruptured meniscus in right leg, and hip dysplasia! The first surgery is on her left leg in hopes the meniscus does not rupture on that side. Then, a surgery on rt side in a few months! Poor girl!!

My sweet, sweet Trigger! We finally took him down to the water today; it took a while, he can only walk a few feet at a time. He got his feet wet, then he collapsed and just laid at edge of water. I'm worried this may be his last beach trip. He seems to have gotten worse since we've been here. :(
