We lost Jack-Johnson this morning. He passed away in my Mama's arms with all of us around. We took care of him all night last night. Mama and us slept on the couch near his kennel. We got up and turned him and gave him water every 2 hours. We gave him pain medicine and adjusted the heater to keep him warm. Dr Koster thought he might do better at home while we were waiting to see if his leg could be saved. He was very quiet and tired at the clinic and Dr Koster thought he might be more comfortable at home.
He seemed to recognize that he was at home, but was still very uncomfortable and unhappy. He just got sleepier and sleepier during the night. Then Mama just felt like we needed to check on him, and he was breathing funny.
The really nice people from Pet Angel came out and picked him up. Dr Koster called and offered us comfort.
Mama has been crying a lot today, so we're going to take a break from our blog for a little while. It's been pretty hard on Mama and Daddy to lose 2 furkids in 2 weeks. It's been hard on us, too, since we've never known life without Sunny and Jack. Thank-you to those of you who have sent us prayers and good wishes.
