Today I had the heart wrenching task of putting my baby Duke to sleep. This morning he was crying in pain and walking funny. I picked him up and put him on my bed. He was just lying there with his eyes open and unresponsive. It was at that point I knew I had to let him go to stop his suffering. When I put him in his carrier he was crying and whimpering in pain.

When I got to the shelter the volunteer told me that it was not from the liver problems it was due to a broken neck. I have been trying to get around how could he have broken his neck? The only thing I could come up with is that sometime during the night he injured his neck (or spinal cord) by possibly jumping off the bed.

The only thing I find comfort in is that I did the humane thing and ended his suffering. I am going to miss him terribly. However when I play back the days events I burst into tears!

Rest In Peace my friend!

Sorry To Being MIA...Again!

I have been feeling a little blah lately. I guess one could say I am a little depressed. I don't have the urge to write even though I know there is more that needs to come out!

It is a common occurrence that people get depressed during the holiday season. With the staggering unemployment rate around the country I am not surprised! I do however have my job during tax season but that is not helping me now!

I am doing some volunteer work for HTC which I think is great! I hope this will keep my mind off of things for a little bit.

Duke is doing a little better. The milk thistle treatment seems to be working. He is eating and using the litter box every day. This is very encouraging indeed.

I hope everybody has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I plan to spend the day at home with my roommates.

America Has Spoken!!!!

I am glad that this election is over! However I am thrilled that America has spoken for change. I was very impressed with the victory speech. The election is the first step. Our new president has many challenges ahead of him. He first NEEDS to unify the country before these changes can take place.

We will all be watching and waiting. We all need to do our part to make this dream of change a reality!
