❤ Beloved ❤
My Beloved Shitzu “Buggz”.
I know I’ve posted this photo before but “Buggz” came to mind as soon as I saw the challenge “Beloved”!
My little dog will be turning 16 in June, I really hope he keeps going, he’s like the Eveready Bunny, he just keeps on going. The poor little guy has had a challenging year, first blindly running into a table leg and popping a hole in his eye, too old to have surgery, we were able to heal it with meds and a lot of care and attention. Then this January he had a major fever that took two rounds of antibiotics and IV fluids, painkillers and more antibiotics only to find out he had “Calcium Oxalate Crystals” (sharp little crystals that tumble around in his bladder) that caused an infection and causing a lot of pain.
He is doing well now, still on pain meds but still wagging his tail and jumping around the living room when his favorite foods are eaten. A slight change of diet and no more of his favorite foods (french fries and bananas) but he still gets excited when he smells them because he can only hope! He is still a happy, healthy senior with a bit of Dementia which makes him all the more loveable, adored and he is my “Beloved”.
Too slow for those who wait. Too swift for those who fear, Too long for those who grieve, Too short for those who rejoice, But for those who love, Time is not… Henry van Dyke
