It is with a very heavy heart that I share this news with you.
I know I have posted many stories about our  Old English Sheepdogs. I rescued them 8 years ago losing our 1st OES. I was cruising the internet and drinking wine.....husband out of town town......bad combo.
I have a theory that you don't go out looking at new cars and puppies because you will probably come home with one.
I had to put our Zipper down last night after another bout with bloat and other complications. He was in so much pain and we had tried everything. It was heartbreaking to see him like that and a kick in the gut to make the decision.
I did it because it was best for him....not necessarily for me:(
He was a crazy boy with tons of personality.....I am so happy to have had 8 years with him.
Those big brown eyes would look right through to your heart.
I feel bad that I threw him under the bus like this once.....
But he did like to indulge occasionally :)
If you want to know how crazy he was you can read this post.
At the end there is a story about my silly boy.
When my husband was flying and gone all the time Zipper and Patches kept me company many lonely nights....and gave me so much love.
I know tonight when I look over to his favorite chair I will feel that little stab in my heart that he is gone.
Here's to you Zippy.....running and playing at the rainbow bridge.
Thanks for letting me share.
