My little friend Gus recently broke my heart when I found him unresponsive on the laundry room floor. He had surgery to remove an eye only 3 days earlier and now I was rushing him to the vet. The news wasn\’t good, but I told them to do what they could and we would be back in the morning to discuss his condition with a specialist.

No sooner did I get home and got the call that my loyal friend stopped breathing. Had I stayed a little longer I could have held onto him as he left us for a better place where he didn\’t suffer from his old age, failed eyesight and poor hearing. They brought him to me wrapped in a warm blanket just as my wife presented him to me as a birthday gift when he was only 6 weeks old. It was the best birthday gift I\’d received in my then 33 years.

I unwrapped him and held him one tast time and cried and told him how much I loved him and missed him.  He was the best friend I ever had. I\’d have given nearly anything to have him one more day just to take him to the park and run and play. I miss Gus so much! It hurts to see his empty bed.
