Trying again! I attempted to do this from my phone before, maybe that was the problem. 

Anyway, here is Boone from last night. smiley

Awwwww! I’m so hoppy you came back to share that pic, thanks so much. Give him extra cuddles from us.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

YES INDEEDY!!!! That is a SUPERB COUCH CUDDLE PICTURE!!! If you look up “couch cuddle” in the dictionary…yep…Boone’s picture is right there!!

Such a beautiful treasured photo. And a beautiful reminder that, as far as Boone is concerned, all is well in Boone’s world! He’s content, he’s happy, he’s loved, he’s spoiled a d he’s with his favorite human…pure bliss! And he has a great blankie!

Glad he saved you some room on his couch!! 🙂

Thanks….huge grin on mh face! 🙂

Lots of love

Yep @Karen, I was hogging.  Boone was pretty comfy up there. I started to wonder if I was going to have to sleep on the couch – didn’t want to disturb him, you know ;-). His comfort comes before mine right now.

Isn’t it great to have a nice big dog to sit with on the sofa!  I just love it.  

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

And we can’t get enough of Boone either!!! In fact, I saw you were logged in last night and I said to my self “Oh boy! We’re gonna get another great picture of Da’ Boone!” I waited…..waited……nope….no picture.

And BAM! Here’s that adoravle mug this morning just waiting for us to all smooch him through the screen!!!!! SMOOOOOCH!!

I see he’s also giving you the “I see you taking yet another picture of me” look! Pretty sure I heard him sighing!

Boone will get mad at me for saying this, but I think we need our Boone fix EVERYDAY!!! Sleeping, eating, barking, wagging his tail, sunbathing, cuddling…ANYTHING BOONE is a GREAT PICTURE and we want more!!!

Auch a sweet picture! Thanks for the smiles!

Lots of love and hugs

Today Boone crossed the Bridge. His breathing had become more labored over the weekend and the cough was worse despite the Prednisone . This morning he ate his breakfast, then promptly threw it all up. With blood.

The rest of the morning his eyes just looked lost and he couldn’t get comfortable no matter how he tried to sleep.

Thankfully we had a vet who could come to the house this afternoon to help make Boone’s transition peaceful.

He went out wagging.

Thank you all so much for all of the support over the last couple of months. You all made this unexpected journey easier and I will forever be grateful for all of you cheering Boone on.
