Mister


I'm not sure that I can do Mister justice with a bunch of words. I just feel like I need to do this as part of saying good bye to him.

We made the decision to have Mister put down the week before Christmas. He'd been having issues with chronic abscesses and was not a happy camper. After a visit to the vet and xrays, it was clear that he would never be 100% sound again. In addition, his outlook was "very grim" as far as even being comfortable and pain free. As much as it was hard to hear the vet tell me that, it was the concrete answers we needed to make our decision. He was only 5 years old, which meant he had a lot of years ahead of him to be in pain. Euthanasia seemed like the kindest thing to do for him.

So good bye Buddy. Rest in peace.
