Brady

I lost Brady yesterday after a very short and sudden illness.

A few weeks ago the vet confirmed he had Lyme Disease, two weeks of antibiotics would normally cure it, only he never got better. He lost 6 lbs, and for a 20lb dog that’s over a 1/4 of this body weight.  He was sleeping constantly, refused to eat.  On Friday the vet confirmed kidney failure, which is a very rare side effect of Lyme Disease.

Brady was dying.

Honestly though, I think he had a broken heart.  He missed Java, since her passing I noticed he was always a little bit sad, no attempts to make him happy worked,  he had lost his spark.

I spent Friday night holding him, making sure he knew how loved he was.  How I was going to miss him.  He and I took one final ride on Saturday morning before we went to the vet. My vet is so kind and let me hold him in my arms as he euthanized him just as he did Java 9 months ago.

I am happy they are reunited in heaven, I hope to see them again one day.

I am completely and utterly heartbroken.
