Artist's Description

My handsome Josh, now 14 years old, is failing daily and this morning the Vet told me it’s “his time” to go! His body is simply wearing out from age and this morning showed that! Hip problems has caused deterioration to his leg muscles to the point that this morning, he suddenly lost all strength to stand up or walk and had to drag his hind end across the yard to get back inside. It was the first time this happened and I was beside myself….in tears…couldn’t lift him, he weighs almost 70 pounds, afraid to help him for fear of hurting him more….what a time for both of us!!! We managed to get inside where he simply just laid down exhausted and worn out.
So it’s the “time dreaded” but necessary because I can’t stand to see him in pain and suffering or unable to be active anymore. My heart is broken!

I will make the necessary arrangements for him and he will soon be at rest…….and Oh how I will miss him after 15 years of being my friend and always by-my-side companion!! Ever since he came to live with me at just 5 weeks old, rescued from a man who planned to shoot him.
