Harry is Gone

Thank you to all of those who wrote yesterday.

We spent the day doing special things.  Harry loved to be on my lap, but
with the incontinence we hadn't done it in a long time.  I wrapped him in a
towel and laid him on my lap.  He was so content.  I also took him outside
and let him lay in the sunshine (he always loved that).

I took Harry to the vet at 4:30.   When he came into the examination room he
told me he smelled a strong amonia smell when I brought Harry into the
clinic.  This meant he had a urinary tract infection caused by the weakness
in the rear (due to the paralysis).  He also had a ulcertative something or
other (I didn't see ulcers, but apparently they were causing the odor).  He
said it was time, no question about it.

This gave me much more peace.  I didn't want to think I was rushing Harry if
anything else could be done.

So, I held Harry's head and stroked him while the vet gave him the
injection.  He went very peacefully.

The last, best gift you could give him.  Godspeed to the bridge, beloved
boy...
