We Lost D.J.

I live in a sea of estrogen.

Two dogs;  two cats.  A woman.

Then there was the other male.

Another dog named D. J.  Aka ‘the boy’, Don Juan, Boo-ba-do, Boo, Boob.

He kept the females in line. If the other dogs took to barking at miscreants outside (who had the indecency to walk down the public sidewalk in front of the our town house) he would bring up the rear, barking from under the toilet!

His other jobs were stealing others food, and inspecting hind ends for cleanliness.

He has been losing his hearing, sense of smell and sight for some time, making more like a Roomba than a dog.  And he loved falling asleep wherever you needed to be!

He just turned 16!

The past couple of days he simply refused to eat.

He left us last night.

He was a good dog…

  3. I Feel your loss. I never got used to the fact that we will likely outlive all of ours, and though I attend their passing if at all possible, I feel somehow some extra measure of comfort in attending those who passed at home.Take it easy, bro.

  4. There is not much left to say, just agree that they are family and it hurts just as much as when we lose any family member. Take it easy and try not to let it interfere with your own healing.

  5. Hugs. They are our babies even when they are driving us nuts.
