Majestic Diary

July 30, 2011

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 around him.

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.

After speaking 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...
