I loved reading your posts about Levi! What a cool dog. I am so sorry for your loss and I know what a vacant hole in your heart this leaves. I sent my dog Bella off on Thursday and we had a very similar day as you and your wife did with Levi. It has always been about their quality of life - not ours, so I did what you did and released my Bella to the better life beyond. I loved your story about the pizza delivery guy...very funny. Enjoy your memories and access them often. Levi was clearly loved beyond words.
Thank you and I'm so very sorry for your loss of Bella. I hope she and Levi are running together somewhere right now.
Levi was diagnosed w/likely osteosarcoma at 7.5 years old in 7/2015 and became a Tripawd on 9/11/15. Loved life until he broke one of his front legs on 2/12/17. As x-rays showed clean bone, we decided to repair the leg. He recovered well, but in June of 2017, started to limp on the same leg. X-Rays showed return of OSA in the front leg. Levi crossed the rainbow bridge on 7/20/17, after over 22 months as a happy Tripawd.
