Such a sad morning, our dog left us. We saw his slow decline over the last few weeks, especially the pain when he walked. At first, he responded to our attempts to make him well, then suddenly he turned for the worse. By the end, he could barely hold his head up. He isolated himself for many hours at a time and refused to eat. When I came home from work last night, I heard his labored breathing and knew his time was short. He waited until 6:00 this morning when we were all together, and then he passed away.
We never asked for a dog. Years ago, our neighbor left him in our care while she went away to basic training, but then she never came back for him. Bobo became a part of our family.
