Goodbye Caffrey

January 3rd, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

One day after we welcomed a new addition into our family, we said goodbye to one. After a brief but difficult illness, we put Caffrey to sleep today. His illness had caused him to lose functionality in his back legs, to the point where he couldn’t stand up anymore. I had to put a towel under his hips to get him to go outside. He didn’t have much quality of life anymore, he wasn’t eating and could no longer even get up the stairs to sleep in our bedroom.

Baby Claire has two new guardian angels now. Guinness and Caffrey are playing together again in doggie heaven, and will always be in our hearts and our memories the puppies they are in these pictures. Goodbye, boys.

    Congratulations, Amy & Eric! She’s a beautiful little girl. I figured it would be a girl this time. :-) I hope you are all settling in well out there.

    Congrats also on graduating from nursing school. We’re on the same page there – I’m heading to nurse-midwifery school this summer (hopefully!) Did you know I’ve been a doula for almost 3 years? I’ve been to over 14 births, including one last summer at Reston Hospital. It’s interesting to see how differently L&D is there compared to Seattle.

    Sorry to see the news about the dogs, but it sounds like you made two good but difficult decisions.

    Love you!
