We will be letting go of
Duran Moon at 6:00 o'clock tonight... It's been a
long fight, but his immunity has never been the same
since losing Rio... He's been fighting illness and
infection... Today I went outside to feed him his
breakfast (I always bring his highness his breakfast
and serve it up to him personally) and he couldn't
Just came back
from the vet... let our Dear Moon-Moon go. We chose
not to wait for his appointment at six. His bill
was turning yellow from liver failure and the vet
discovered that he was
underweight, so even though I served him his
breakfast every day, the vet said he wasn't
processing his food properly.
After pulling his
medical file and reviewing all of his medications, I
can only assume that it was just too much for his
liver to take.
I feel terrible...
when Rio passed away in 2010 I promised him before
he left that I would take really good care of his
brother. I feel like I let him down...
Moon's ashes will be
back in two weeks and he will be buried along side
his brother Duran Rio as soon as our new cemetery is
completed this fall.
I sure will miss
greeting him throughout the day... "Hello Da
Moon-Moon! Bye-bye Da Moon-Moon..."
And now I need to
help his girlfriend River through this heartbreaking
