So, here goes....
We hab all been in da big funk since we been losin Zorro. He was da bestest ever big brudder. Some times he would even play bawl wiff me! He also teached me how to be a good alpha doggie - how to be strong but gentle.
In da spring, myown momma is going to create a special garden, off da porch, where we will bury Zorro; and den we will pwant hostas and other shade plants, maybe wiff a stepping stone or two. I can't wait till it gets warmer so we can do dat special project.
We had a vet appointment this morning, because his desire to eat was becoming more erratic. Dr. Whisler said that Zorro was retaining a great deal of fluid in his abdomen, probably due to liver failure. He said that he could do a test and put him on diuretics, but Zorro would be very difficult to regulate because of the urinary issues associated with his diabetes. He said we should probably be "preparing ourselves."
I did not want to put little Zorro through any more trauma. It's been hard to watch this food-crazy Corgi boy not want the food put in front of him, and going down hill.
He was my heart dog, my baby. I miss him so much. I hope he finds his brothers Grover and Jordan, and his many friends waiting for him at the Bridge.
Love to you, my precious little Zorro!
