At 12:00 midnight., our beloved yellow lab Deacon developed severe respiratory distress. We took him to the Animal Emergency Hospital in town. He was previously diagnosed with inoperable Laryngeal Paralysis. The event today was the final crisis distress from the paralysis. With no alternatives that would give him any quality of life back, we made the most humane decision we could muster.
Deacon took his last breath at 2:55 A.M… Deacon was 14 years old.
I have lumber from one of his favorite trees from the back yard. The top section of the white oak. That will be part of his urn…
He is already greatly missed.
