RachelnLouie's Puppy


In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

As far back as I can remember I wanted a dog of my own. During my 21st year I was blessed with Louie as a Christmas present. He was quite the crazy puppy that kept me on my toes. He was loving and so playful. All I ever wished for and even more. As he grew up he became such a well behaved little chap and my best friend. At the end of May (2011) he was diagnosed with anal sac adenocarcinoma in other words cancer. I was distraught when the vets told me that I would only have 2 weeks or at most 2 months left with my little boy. I wanted to ensure that his last days were the best of his life & I devoted all of my time to him. 2 weeks passed, still no sign of him feeling unwell in fact he was very much the hyper 'wiggle bum' as usual. The same as 2 months passed, at this point I thought to myself "now we're on borrowed time". I spent practically all of my time with him, taking him for long walks twice a day, making special trips to his favourite parks, not leaving him home alone, letting him sleep on my bed, all the fuss and attention - whatever made his days better. We never thought he'd reach his 9th Birthday... but he did! And we had a 5 mile walk that day and a party including a doggy-friendly birthday cake that I made. As November came he began to struggle with getting up the stairs, so I slept on the couch to keep him company. Then he went off his kibble, so I cooked him chicken and rice. He started to get tired more often (unless there was a squirrel or a pigeon in the garden, then he was off like a shot). The days became darker and shorter and my little boy deteriorated... we reached the point where there was nothing else I could do to make him comfortable or happy. He let me know it was time. He'd already beaten the odds, he'd been fighting for so long. On November 28th at 6pm me & my parents had to say goodbye to my baby boy. I know now he is no longer in pain or stuggling and I just hope he knows how much I love him. People say you never forget a dog, especially your first.
