My little boy Sir Monroe Adam
Sir Monroe Adam
Monroe took ill on April 26, 2014 and had to be put to sleep on April 29th, my birthday. I was able to have him for almost 12 years but not long enough for a schnauzer.
I cannot begin to describe the hurt and sadness I feel right now. I am never going to be the same, I feel the hurt is going to last forever. I cry everyday.
I have had dogs through out my childhood, but never a schnauzer. I did not know what I have missed by not having one. My husband and I are so lonely in the house without him, we are hurting so bad right now.
He was the SMARTEST dog I have every seen; so loveable, playful, loyal, cuddly, and loved to cuddle with me in the mornings in my bed; and actually asked for kisses by pushing his nose up to my lips. I got him two weeks before my son went to Iraq, and he would call all the way from Iraq to ask about Monroe, and then he would ask how we were doing!
Monroe develop diabetes, and then cataracts. It was very hard to control his blood sugar at times and then he developed pancreatitis and he just could not recover from it. It pained me to see him so sick, but we tried everything to help him but he could not come through. It was a tough decision to put him down, but I know it was for the best. I just wish I could have kept him longer. I MISS HIM SO!!
Such a handsome dog, got compliments every where he went. The whole neighborhood loved him. But I have to say he did not like dachshunds, he always looked at them, as to say what are you?
Does it ever stop hurting? Thank you for letting me share my story. He made our home so warm and happy. We loved coming home to be with him. There is nothing like owning a schnauzer.
