14 April 2010


My lovely and loving dog Bogart died yesterday April 14 around noon Manila time. I was about to give my dogs their weekly bath but I found Bogart sleeping soundly in his house. It was strange to find him like that because he loves bathtime but I decided to give his father Sumo and brother Sweepy their bath first and allowed Bogart a peaceful nap. That nap proved to be Bogart's last. When I tried to wake him up I realized he was unconscious and not breathing. In denial I tried calling his vet and another vet friend DrGeoff who is my dog's friend. But it is over. Bogart is dead. It was so sudden that I am in shock and in deep mourning. Bogart may not look it but he is a fun and loving dog and although he is active and playful, he is also 9 years old, a senior dog and anything can happen to him.
How does one say goodbye to a good friend? I don't know anymore. I must have forgotten. I lost a lot of friends and family to cancer and other sickness, but this time I just feel numb. My world has stopped . . . .

Oh no! :/ I'm so sorry to hear that! I'm feeling the sadness with you. I know it's hard to say goodbye for the last time to the best friend with four feet. I had a cat who got 15 years, then died. It was very hard. I feel much sorry for you! But I'm sure he's now playing in the Heaven. Hugs from me.
