My old blind cocker spaniel finally passed away this weekend. I rescued him from the pound over 3 years ago. No one thought he would live a year. I learned a lot about ear infections and curing digetive issues. He had his own shelf in my fridge with his special food. He never barked but he had a very loud howl when he knew he was alone in a room. His passing leaves a noticeable hole in my house and routine. I miss him but I am glad he is finally at peace.
The same day that I buried my dog I was offered 2 small dogs to foster. I had to turn them down. I am still trying to get my life organized and I don't want to start fostering again right now. They always say they will get adopted quickly but there is no guarantee. Now that my old dog isn't living in my bathroom anymore I want to fix it up and do all of the things I was putting off while he was still here. Paint, fix the dripping shower, do something with the tile and replace the vanity cabinet. Just painting the ugly walls will be a huge improvement.
