Wizard went to the Bridge
I have not been honest on this blog. I wanted to keep it positive and upbeat and fun! Wizard was going down hill quickly. This past weekend he started telling us it was time. He did all his favorite things.. he sat in his little yellow chair and looked out the window. He made it to the top of the tower for a nap. he slept in the current box in the living room. He laid in our laps, a lot. He cuddled with Angel most of the time on the couch. He sat and slept on the sewing table while I quilted. He went out in the garage all the way to the big door and came back. He had to lay down three times in that journey.
He did not eat but a lick or two at a time. He would lay on in front of the water dish and not drink but a lap or two. He was not just having OLB's be we two weak to make to the box and when he did, he would do his business and then lay down in the box. He would not sleep on the bed where he had slept almost every night for 6 years.
He could not find the bridge alone so we had to help him. I wrapped him in a towel and cradled him. Dad picked up Angel and they touched noses to say good by.
We know he is in a better place. We are still very angry that a pet food company caused his early demise. He was only 8 and should have lived another 10 years.
He was a Fierce Fighter if there ever was one! He was a true and constant companion.
He was loved and will be misssed.
Angel and I will be back in December.
