Default for anyone who wants to know

After all the tests they ran and exams they did on boomer. They have diagnosed him with a brain lesion. Tj showed the vet the video on his cell phone of boomer playing in the backyard just a couple of days ago and the vet could see how much weight he lost in a two day period.

I now will have peace knowing that this was nothing that could have been prevented or treated. The vet was explaining how he probably had this lesion for sometime now but they don't always show any symptoms until it reaches the part of the brain where motor function is involved. He had lots of neurological issues that developed today.... I told tj whatever it was it was affecting his brain. The vet said that boomer didn't appear to be in any pain, but he clearly can not live in that condition.

The decision to euthanize was made. It was in the best interest of boomer. I will miss my little black stray ditch dog tj brought home that cold winter night when someone dumped him off on the side of the road to fend for himself when he was just a baby. I am filled with sadness right now. I have to grieve the loss of a great dog. The guilt I will have now will be that I missed out on spending these last few months with him. He had a good life with us and he was loved and cared for. We gave him the life his previous owners denied him. TJ held him in his arms right to the end. I think I am still in shock. Poor lola knows something is going on... the cat does too. They both have hardly left my side the past couple of hours.

I am asking that if you don't have anything nice to say.. or words of support.. please refrain from posting out of respect. I just thought I'd post this update to let those of you who have been asking me know what has happened. Thanks for all the private messages of support, I appreciate it.

I just got off the phone with tj. Boomer is gone He said he held him close and he just slipped away in his arms. He said his passing was peaceful and that the staff at this place was very caring and compassionate. I thought my tears had dried up... but they just keep flowing. At least it's over. He is free to run and play like he always did.

Nancy, I'm really sorry Boomer and everything you're going through. For whatever it's worth, when I read your original post, I had a feeling Boomer was going through something that wasn't caused by anyone (hope that made sense). Please don't beat yourself up for the last few months. What you're going through is out of your control.

*hugs to you and tj*

I wonder if other dogs think Cresties are members of some weird religious cult?
