I lost a good friend and fur child this week. Frankie Blue Eyes joined other’s on that final walk over the Rainbow Bridge. After fourteen years Frank fell ill. Blood tests were normal but an ultrasound, showed he had cancer in virtually every organ. He stopped eating and drinking and short-term treatment for dehydration was only to make him comfortable. We had to be brave and let him go. It is never an easy thing to do but if you love your pet as we did Frank, there was only one path to take.
The picture above is Frank on my desk reminding me that there are a thousand words to write. He did this every day and was a hard taskmaster.
Once Frank was sure I was pounding the keyboard he would settle in for some shuteye and maintain his support profile until I was finished.
When he was certain all was under control in the writing department he would find another place to round out his day.
We will miss you, Frank, and thank you for fourteen years of laughter and protection. Rest well.
