I am writing with very sad news.
Nitro crossed the rainbow bridge yesterday.
I took him into the vet and she did blood work on him. It turned out he had diabetes, a heart condition, and arthritis.
She said that his pancreas was shutting down.
I could have tried to manage it, but she said I was only prolonging the inevitable.
So I knew the best thing to do was to let him go.
He passed away very peacefully, and I was with him when he passed away.
The vet was really lovely. She explained everything to me as she went.
I will be getting him cremated and I will get his ashes back in six to 8 weeks time.
I can’t believe my beautiful loyal, loving dog is gone.
Life is going to be so hard now without him.
He will always have a special place in my heart.
I kept waking up last night thinking I could hear him and it was so weird not to have to get up to let him out.
I miss him so much already. I just can’t believe he’s gone.
RIP Nitro, sweet boy.
