July 20 Worst Day!

I lost my boy today. It was sudden. No warnings. Him and I had shared a cheese sandwich. Next thing I know my lil girl is barking and barking. I called his name, and he did not come. I ran to the side yard (we have a doggy door) and he was laying on his side in the yard. It had just happened when I got to him. Saya came in to get me, she had my attention within a minute. I tried CPR but he would not come back. His last holter was only 26 VPCs. I had thought we would be fighting off CHF. My sudden death worry hand subsided a little. It was just a typical a day the dogs and me. He left me around 11:30 today. This pain and shock is almost too much! I have to be strong for my husband and two girls. Kheper meant the world to us. I was going to make his follow up appt for around the 22nd, but could not bring my self too. I'm just so hurt. Hearing some great advice on the medical side helps. His heart could have looked the same. Really, who knows how this f*cking disease works. I feel like a part of me has been ripped away. I did give him the best life I could. I worked from home to be there with my dogs. I have no regrets, he will just be missed terribly. I try to could how many ear rubs I did today, I think just one but i've done so many in the past, with butt scratches. I had a slight headache and was laying on the couch. He came up to me a couple times, once tried to lay at my feet. Last night when I came up to bed, he was on my side, i squeezed in behind him and got to hold him for a few. usually that is only a winter thing after he wants under the blanket. I can barly see to type. My body just hurts. I wanted to let everyone know now in an attempt to move on. This was so out of my control, I just really really miss him. he meant the world to me. Hug your dogs morning noon and night!!!! List was the last photo I took of my boy. He watching his sisters play.

We woke up, he was cuddeling with his head up by my chest. Usually it's his rump. He had a sausage and egg breakfast, and did a lil barking in his run :) He had some kibble so we waited and headed out to mom's at about 2. I just let him out of the truck so he could take off in a full run. He lapped the house as usual :) We played some frisbee. She shot off around the house a few times looking for any cats. He rolled in some stuff as usual :) We hung out till bout 4. Headed into town and picked up a double baconater for him, and two jr. for his sisters. Dan gave them their sandwiches. Khep took a little nap. Dan took them out back to play while I ran to the store to grill out. Dan cooked him his rib eye, Khep was drooling :) He enjoyed it! After dinner he napped for a few on his couch on the porch. Then came in. He looked sleeping on his way up to bed with daddy. I hope he had a good day. I love my boy so much!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

May 2nd Sun

Dan and I took them for about a 2 hour hike out at moms. Hunting mushrooms (found nothing). Dan took Khep and Grusel, I walked Saya. We came home, everyone was tired. Khep had some kibble, so I gave him a knuckel to chew on.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

May 1st Sat

Khep's Uncle Dave came out to install his doggy door! Saya and Pryse played out back with Christine and I. Kheper was able to hang out while they put the door in. He didn't really want to get along with Pryse, so had to stay in his side yard. We ordered food and put Saya and Pryse in the kitchen. Khep got to share a pizza and some gyro with us. He was happy to hang out with us while the puppies were in the kitchen.

Playing catch up with work :( I had to burn some leaves this morning, and Khep and Grusel were howling together in the house. I didn't hear Saya chimmingin yet. I then brought them out back. We were outback all day long. Dan came out when he got home to play frisbee for a few. Khep fell asleep in the yard for a few too :) Saya on my lap in the hammock.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

April 19th Monday

We hung out in the back yard most the day. Saya's fever broke, so we are just taking it easy. The cat was back in our garage, so I got out the hose. The cat ran through the back yard while the dogs were out there! Dumb cat. Khep got a good chase and learned he coudl not climb trees. I got the cat out of the tree with the hose so he would settle down.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

April 18th Sunday

Uncle Dave came out today! Khep was quite happy. Poor Saya is running a fever, so we stayed at the house. They played out back while I worked in the garden. Crazy dog gave me an un needed scare. I was pretty sure he went out the back door when Dan and Dave went out the front. After Dan and Dave came in, I went to call Khep. He didn't come. I was so scared to find him laying somewhere. Of course not, he had trapped himself in the garage looking for that stupid cat. I was so happpy to find him :) He didn't make a peep pry when I was calling him pry cuz he knew he was not suppose to be in there.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

April 17th Saturday

Khep's daddy came with us out for our hike :) We went down in the woods, and looked around for mushrooms. Saya was being a nut, so Dan and I traded off. Khep is so well manored :) Him and I walked around for a few. Then went to look for Dan and the girls. Khep's nose hit the ground and was really tracking :) We found them of course back up at the house. Khep found a nice pile of racoon poo to roll in, o boy was he stinky. We hung out with them for quite awhile in the grass area. He likes when Dan comes with us :)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

April 16th Friday

Headed out to moms. He was really looking for cats :( We went down in the woods, but Saya was being very difficult :( Khep was listening so well. We headed back up and hung out in the grass area for a few. We'll go back out there tomorrow.
