Real Quick: I thought I’d share what Dudley looked like a few weeks before he was gone. See how his hind legs are spread apart? Imagine that on the floor trying to walk. See how his front legs, his arms are bent in a curved position. Tough to stand up on. Now, notice how stiff all legs are. Imagine shaking so badly when trying to stand that you just fall over.
See how he’s panting. This began on more often in the last week of his life. He actually looked worse than this picture portrays. Baby is Happy in Heaven, running around and playing now, with my other dogs from past loses.
I got Dutton one year before loosing Dudley. Hoping at the time that Dudley may have been up to sort of helping me train him, as he did with my other baby dogs, but Dudley was not up to it, even then (Christmas 2019).
Shortly after bringing home Dutton home, we went shopping.
We have had some time to mourn our loss of Dudley. Mommy and me have been bonding with hugs and kisses. I’m a heavy fella to pick up, especially when I go all Noodley/Limp, when she goes to pick me up.
I love being brushed and even getting the tape lint roller all over. That’s one of my favorite things. Mommy is still trying to teach me to play with my toys for more than 1-2 throws.
I’ve become quite the lazy pampered big harry baby doggie. Oh & tune into next weeks story about how I act with Smoke!
