I'm usually the one that says my New Years resolution is to not make any resolutions but this year was different as it may have been the first time in my entire lifetime that I was able to make the one and only resolution that I have always wanted to make: "To see just how long I could go without having to do anything that I didn't want to do". Sounds like a pretty lofty goal, right? I actually made it to thirty days. That was quite a fete since I live with and care for my very demanding mother.
Just before midnight Maxie our Shi Tzu and Jasmine our Bischone starting barking like crazy and woke us up. Our third little love, Biscuit the Yorkie, was in congestive heart failure and couldn't breathe. After calling the emergency vet and getting directions I grabbed him and headed out. The closest emergency vet was in Las Vegas almost 18 miles away. Needless to say, Biscuit died in my arms along the way there. Driving my puppy to the vet for an emergency was definitely something that I did not want to do. Now I am on a quest to find a new vet here in Henderson that will open their office after hours for an emergency.
The first two weeks in February have been brutal with puppy deaths and best friends getting devastating health news. Thank God I am not working right now and can process all this pain. Looking forward to happier months to come. Send love and healing energy my way will ya? Thanks!
