It is with extreme sadness and profound grief that I must report the passing of our beloved boy dog, Blacky. The arthritis and the hip dysplasia were causing the neuological problems that Blacky was experiencing. The problems were pretty severe and had gotten significantly worse since his last visit to the vet on Thursday. After looking at the latest set of xrays and hearing the description of what was causing the problems, it was time for Hubby and I to make a very difficult decision about Blacky’s future. We could tell Blacky was hurting, but until we saw those xrays we had no idea to what extent. We just couldn’t bear to put him through that anymore.
He passed away last night about 7 p.m.
We’re all pretty shell shocked right now. It just happened so fast. One day he was fine, the next day he wasn’t. And now he’s gone.
