Rusty and Rembrandt

The day we left for California to attend dad's funeral,

Rusty was unable to get up

and he would not eat.

I knew the signs....

it was exactly how Scooter acted the day we had to put him down,
11 years ago.

The timing was terrible.

We said our good-byes and Zach (Chrissy's hubby) took him to the vet,
who confirmed our fears....cancer.

Rusty was a sweetheart.

I miss him.

....and so does Rembrandt.

Ever since we arrived home from California,

we have showered all of our love on Rembrandt.

The attention we wish Rusty was here to get, is all directed at Rem.

Come to think of it,

maybe it is displaced love and attention for Tom, my dad, and Wyatt too.

Anyway, it makes us feel good to do it.

He gets extra petting and treats, baths, grooming, and he sleeps inside.

. . . I don't even like indoor pets . . .

dear me

The timing couldn't have been worse. I hope Rem is doing better with all the extra love though!

I'm glad to hear Rem is receiving so much intentional and vicarious love :-)

Oh dear Diane, I'm so sorry you're Rusty is gone. What a lucky boy he was though--he had such a good life with your family and with Remmie. You'll have him again--in the meantime, it does comfort our hearts, doesn't it, to have our dear pets. I know it helps me...hugs to all of you, and to Remmie.

Okay, you have had your 3, you are done for awhile ;.)

At least they are all together having fun and visiting when times are quiet.

That is the worst. It's so sad to loose a pet, but even worse with your dad passing away. I am so sorry. Good thing Rembrandt is stil around and reeping all the love you have to give.

I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends.
