What a difference a week makes.

Sadly,  just as I thought Shaggy was improving, he took a real turn for the worse and we have unfortunately lost him today.  He’d been up and down all week really but over the weekend he deteriorated to the point where he was having seizures and collapsing and losing control of his bladder.  He was struggling to breathe and we had to make that decision that all pet owners fear and dread.  We stayed with him whilst he went to sleep and although we are all heart-broken and will miss him terribly, we know we made the right choice.  I thought I would dedicate this week’s post to Shaggy, in pictures, when he was in his prime. 

Looking good Shaggy

  1. Awww! I’m so sorry to hear this. You did the right thing by him. I know it’s not easy, I’ve been there too. Sending you all love and hugs xx

  2. Oh, I’m so sorry. It’s a horrible thing to have to do, but you definately did the right thing for him. If it’s any consolation, I’ve been there too with my lovely cat Ozzy. Lots of hugs to all The Doodlywhatsits.
