I cannot speak

for the masses

much less relate.




My best friend is struggling today.

Three months ago he ruptured the cruciate ligament in his hind right knee.  I opted for a surgical procedure that was tough on him.  It’s been healing slowly and he rarely uses it, but it’s coming along.

Last night, it appears the ligament in his other hind leg has ruptured.  He is so crippled at this point.  I’m sitting and waiting for the vet’s office to open.  The possible options running through my head.  The impossible option which may be the kindest for him, depending on the outcome of the exam.

He’s been my best friend for 9 years.  I don’t know what I would do without him.
