RIP Kibbles

Kibbles was diagnosed several months ago with congestive heart failure. I was giving her medicine daily to help her out, but she was on a downward path for a while.

The last few days she's been struggling to breath more than usual. Last night she woke up to pee, which she never does, and I had the urge to pet her a little before I passed back out.

I'm glad I did.

This morning I came downstairs with Laszlo and saw Kibbles, lifeless, in her crate. Tallulah was agitated, she probably didn't know what to make of it.

I put the crate and the dog in the garage so the kids wouldn't see her. Then I got them all off to school. I was going to tell them when they got home, but I decided (per the suggestion of a psychologist friend) to wait until Robert gets home and tell them together. They haven't noticed, and I told Lily this morning that Kibbles was sick and at the vet. Kibbles has been old since the kids were old enough to care about her, so they haven't even noticed that she's not here.

I feel sad. She was a great dog. So cute. I've always been a two-dog kinda gal. But I'm not getting another one, at least for a while. I'm just not home enough to raise a puppy.

So that's it. I'm gonna tell the kids that her spirit is with her sister Alabama and they are playing together somewhere and so happy to be together again.

She had a nice life with you. I'm glad you had that final time together.
