Benny's health has
taken a turn for the worse. He can no longer walk at
all and has lost all desire to swim. His appetite
has also faded.
We've clipped a
fan to his beach cottage to help him stay cool and
relaxed with all the ladies wandering and quacking
I take him for a
swim in a clean kiddy pool that has been warmed by
the sun a couple times a day, but he doesn't want to
stay in it very long.
with our vet, we have decided to give him until
Tuesday. He is on some potent pain meds until then
to keep him very comfortable and I'll bring him some
freshly caught nightcrawlers and some juicy
watermelon to jump start his appetite.
Benny's doing much
better tonight. He's eating and preening and
enjoying his pool--even splashing a bit. But he
tires very quickly and wants out within only a
couple of minutes. His eyes don't look the same
either. He seems so tired...
Hold on my baby...
not much longer... and it will all go away in light
of a place more beautiful...
