Saturday night, January 7th, my little boy, Linus, lost his battle with cancer. He made it 2 months past his diagnosis date, and he fought for 3 weeks but his little body just couldn't take it anymore. My wife and I made the painful decision to euthanize him that morning, and I think it was the longest day of my life. I made sure he got that chocolate he always wanted before he passed :) . We held him while he took his last breath, and a part of me died with him at that moment. I am pretty good at disconnecting from things that cause pain in my life, but I'm not sure that I will ever fully recover from this loss. He gave us 13 years of happiness, and I am thankful for that.
I know I've said it before, but until you have loved an animal, you have not experienced true, unconditional love. I will never be able to understand people who abuse or mistreat animals. They ask for nothing and give everything.
Rest in peace buddy. You'll be in my memories forever.
We are moving on
