I had to put Verde down last Oct due to an issue with her abdominal tract. Only way to find out exactly what was wrong was a full abdominal exam. She was 10 and I didnt want her to go through that, and I didnt want to go through that. This last April I had to have Blue's belly drained only to find his liver was done. He was also 10. I had Blue from when he was 6 weeks old. This was hard but I think he knew it was for the best. I have their ashes in the widow that gets the evening sun. I have their paw prints that I will eventually use for tattoos. Meet Lucy., she has a lot of traits of both Blue and Verde. She has Blue's separation anxiety, I have to let her spend 5-10 minutes loving on me after coming home or she wont do her business outside. She wont let the window be covered. She also has a greater attachment to me then Blue did. She is calmer then Verde, and quieter. She is a brindle pit mix like Verde as well. Im convinced my two hellions helped push Lucy on me. I will always miss them.
