Buddy update (2)

Brief update - Ran Buddy to emergency this morning. His breathing rate was over 80 breaths a minute and he was cold. His temp was down to 94 deg. After talking with vet, made decision to let him go tonight. He's resting comfortably in heated oxygen chamber for now, so I'll run up to Vancouver, pick up Laura and come back down. Tonight we'll say that final goodbye. Beyond sad.

I'm glad he's more perky in the oxygen chamber.

  9. Oh...Oh, my heart is broken for you. I, too, had hoped you'd have more time with him, wasn't expecting that you would have to let him go so soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you, may Buddy cross peacefully and quickly to the "Rainbow Bridge", and may you find peace in your heart knowing that no one could have loved him more or given him a better forever home. Blessings. ❤
