We Miss You

Saturday morning we woke up and notice Bella was walking with a limp. We decided to take her to the vet before we left for our trip. After getting looked at the Dr. determined that she had a slipped disk in her back and would need surgery right away. We prayed and thought about it and felt that surgery wasn't the right thing for her. So she was given a steroid shot and some pain medication. By the end of the day she had gone paralyzed from the middle of her back down.
Monday morning we were leaving and she and Jojo were going to be staying with a friend from work. We got a call from them the next morning say that when they picked her up to take her outside they noticed she was bleeding. They took her to the vet and had the Dr call us. We got a call a little later letting us know that the bleeding was from her bladder beginning to tear from the pressure(she didn't have the function to go to the bathroom). He said there was about a 10% chance she would live if surgery was done right away but that she would need 24 hour care for the rest of her life. We know we couldn't give the kind of care she needed so we decided to put her down. Bella was a great dog and we would like to think we gave her a good life.

Love Hate Relationship

Grayson loves taking baths, I mean the sound of the water turning out he comes running. So I thought it would be fun to get him a little pool. You can't tell from this picture but he didn't want anything to do with the pool. It took him about 15min to get to this point. There was no walking around, no sitting, just standing there.

He was also like that when we went up to Lake Tahoe the other weekend. He wanted nothing to do with the water and would scream when a wave came up and got him.

I don't get it!

This is just another picture from up at Tahoe. He loved just walking around checking everything out.
