My sweet Raider has gone to the bridge. He would have turned 14 1/2 this month on the 26 and up until yesterday was doing wonderfully, even had a senior blood panel a couple weeks ago that was perfect. He woke up yesterday, went out, ate his breakfast and came back in. Around 6:30 he had what looked to be a seizure, I comforted him, and he seemed okay but it left him unable to get up. I planned on calling my vet at 8 and taking him in, managed to get him up around ten minutes to 8 to go out but he began gasping so we got him in the car and I took him directly to my vets just 5 minutes away. After examining him, vet suggested it was time, and I agreed. His eyes had the look that told me he was ready so I cradled his head and crooned to him I loved him and he was the best dog in the whole world and we let him go. He was the sweetest dog and never met a dog or human he didn't love and who didn't love him. I will miss him, but feel very blessed to have had him in our life for as long as we did.
Gone, never forgotten
