This precious day...

We saw another vet today, not our regular guy who was booked solid, but a great gal they referred us to, and Boo's ailment is still a mystery. So far, no new episodes, and we have stopped the pain meds which made him kind of loopy and not very hungry, either. Now I know that he has a significant heart murmur and arthritic hips. None of this slows him down all that much. Even in damped down mode yesterday, he managed to cavort around, jump up on the bed and couch, and down again. He appears to be just his old self today, and so far, no episodes of distress. I also know that nothing that is happening is life threatening, and no damage is being done that can be discerned. All this has made me appreciate dear Boo even more than usual. I knew when I was on my way to pick him up, back in October, 1998, that he was temporary. I savor his dear presence every single day, with doggy massages and special one-on-one moments. Now, every day with Boo in it is a gift.
