This has been a hard day for me; we had to put Lobo down. The tumor was getting the best of him, and interfering with his eating and swallowing, etc., not to mention the stench associated with it.
I know that if there is a better place where animals go, Lobo is there! It is absolutely true that a dog (pet) offers you unconditional love, and you become very attached to them. He was my buddy, always sleeping on the floor beside my bed, watching me get dressed to see if I was going somewhere, and if I picked up my purse you'd better believe he beat me to the door. He loved to GO. And he knew the ritual without having to be told; Go potty BEFORE getting into the car! Get into back seat and look out the window. If you go into a store that requires a cookie when you get back in the car. And if you go into a restaurant, that requires you bring a bite of something out with you.
So you see, he was an integral part of my life, and I will miss him greatly. I wanted to post a couple pictures of him, but the image upload factor is down for maintenance this evening........maybe tomorrow.
Take care and God bless you with His grace.
