Desiel was my best friend ever. He got sick about a year ago with blatter cancer. He was doing ok and vey active until about a week before his death. The vet said that he could live a normal life span and never acknowledged even 2 days before he died that he was near death. His back legs got real weak and he would act confused a couple of days before he passed.
A week before he passed we were playing basketball and playing with his favorite rocks. He went out to use the bathroom and didn't make it back in. I scooped him up and held him tight as he took his last breath in my arms. My constant companion was gone forever.
I miss that little boy so much it is hard to go on. He was my golf buddy, my fishing partner and my singing friend. He loved to sing with me. His sweet voice is forever silenced. He always met me with a HELLOOOOOO!
I know the pain told in these stories and couldn't keep from crying when I began reading them. It has been 3 months since Desiel passed and the pain is always there. I have several dogs in my life and Desiel was the smartest dog I ever met. I was blessed he spent his 10 years with me.
