Marianne, from NorthView Dairy in New York, posted on her blog, then sent to me photos of a beautiful rainbow…she said they were for Boomer and I.
They are so perfect…they echo throughout my heart like a song.
Boomer is improving slightly. The prognosis is now pneumonia. I have medicine for him — I hope it works.
Yesterday he ate. And he drank. Not lots but some. The coughing is lessening, but still there, and he is weak and exhausted.
About evening, when we do the last change of water, Terry and I were coming back in and he met us at the garage. A weak tail wag going on.
Picking him up I we took him for a short ride where he seemed very happy.
Then last night the coughing worsened. Nighttime always seems to bring out the illness. I sat with him, petting and rubbing and soothing and calming so he could breath.
Around midnight we went outside and he had a nice big pee and a little walk about. Then he laid down again and I sat with him, until 1:30 a.m. He was sleeping —- sleeping restfully.
Around first light he started coughing again. So we went outside where he seemed calmer.
At this moment he is resting on his lawn lounge chair. He has not wanted any food or water. When I finish visiting with you I will go back and sit with him. Then when he wakes up I will try water and food again.
Your friendship, your prayers and warm loving thoughts burn brilliantly bright through the internet. I thank you.
My hope is today we have turned a corner and the murmurs of call to the Rainbow Bridge lessen; my wonderful little beagle begins recovery.
From my very sore and worried heart to your world,
