Four years ago today we held our baby Frosty as he took his last breath. He was the first of our dogs to die. The day I’ve always dreaded– the day I may have to euthanize one of my beloved companion animals was happening.
It is a horrible feeling to desire just one moment more when you know that moment causes more pain for the one you wish to hold onto.
Frosty, you funny, sweet, smart, mischievous, stubborn, loveable dog– we miss you so very much. It feels like an eternity since I’ve felt your velvet ears or felt you good morning kisses on my cheek. The loss doesn’t lessen as the years go by.
We’ve recently lost our boy Frosty to his long fought battle with cancer. He was an amazing dog who had an amazing will to live. The last year of his life was filled with heartache and happiness. A ruptured adrenal gland tumor and subsequent tumor growths blocking his urethra are a few of the cancerous obstacles that were placed in his path. He is missed every day. We will be posting a complete biography of Frosty soon. We will continue to post additional links to the Pet Loss & Grieving categories. Please feel free to suggest your favorites.
Frosty was recently joined by the following well known beloved companions:
Some cats, like Winni, don't like to eat dry food while traveling. Some cats, like Winni, don't like to drink water while traveling. These two dislikes can turn into a problem fast. To avoid your cat becoming dehydrated or ill, pack some canned or wet packaged food for your cat. Don't by shy about adding some more water to the food as they eat it, Winni lapped it right up.
Feeding the Dog on a Trip
Our guys never lost their appetite on trips, far from it. The excitement and fun of the trip seems to make them want to eat more. Be careful not to introduce new foods while traveling with your dog. Your palette should be the only adventurous one while on vacation. Stay with the tried and true until you get home, your dog (and your car interior) will thank you for it.
