Thank you. No he wasn't. I still the glimps of him that he was my Ronin. But he was getting dangerous. He is across that rainbow bridge and we will see him again.

Emily,

I would like to thank you for describing the abrupt changes that Ronin suffered as his brain disease progressed. For me it was a terrible revelation that behavior could be affected so obviously and so fast. Your poor boy was profoundly sick and you saved him from more pain.

It's just so sad.

MJ

Thank you Mary Jane. I hadn't really posted much in the past few months, and I know it would be a shock to everyone. When I posted the original message we were not ready to describe everything, but I have had a few days to let myself grieve. I dreamed of him last night and we were playing in our favorite ball field like we always did. I saw his joy and when I woke up I was crying and felt like he was telling me he was okay, he was happy. That's what I want to remember, not what happened this past week.

What a nightmare. My heart goes out to you at this sad, sad time. You absolutely made the right decision for your beloved boy. Always remember him as he was before this tragedy.

Oh Emily, this is just so tragic... From your description of what happened, he was a very sick boy. You and your husband gave him the final gift of peace and no pain. There is no doubt that he knew how much he was loved and I hope you find comfort in that. I believe as you do that we will see them again someday. I am so sorry for your loss...


Kris

Oh Emily, this is just so unfair for all the work you put in with your beloved dog to have it end so awfully. There is nothing he could do differently, nothing you could do for him more than what you had. He was most fortunate to have you, to have people who cared deeply for him, who did all they could do and, in the end, what they had to do.
Throughout your dealing with Ronin, you have had my admiration. It is only heightened by the underlying tragedy.

Thank you. I made a lot of mistakes in the past months like training too much on our trainer's advice but Ronin loved it. We also joined a scent detection group. He loved it. And was amazing at it. He taught me more in the 13 months we had him than I could have ever kmagined. I hope that he had a good life with us. I dreamt of him last night and he was his normal happy self. I woke up smiling. He was such a good boy. smile

Emily, I'm so sorry to hear of Ronin's passing. I know how it hurts when we loose one of our precious angels, but I hope you find comfort in knowing he knew he was loved.

Emily, my heart hurts for you. I am so sorry you had to say goodbye to your beautiful boy. I hope with time his memory will bring smiles instead of tears. He would want that for you. Run free Ronin, run free.

Hey everyone. So we got our tattoos done this weekend. My husband and I got matching ones. They turned out amazing. We had Ronin's actual paw print. I love them and will always have a piece of him with me. smile
