Friday Boy Died This Morning

The dog delivered yesterday sadly had to be euthanized this morning. Mom and Dad borrowed a car and got him to a vet. He did have distemper and was in the final stages. He was completely paralysed. His heart stopped with just the anesthetic, although he was given the euthanizing drug too just to make sure. The vet said there was nothing else we could do. He was close to death anyway. If, we had managed to get him to a vet yesterday then the outcome would have been the same. Me Mom and Dad are all very upset. He was only three or four months old still had some baby teeth. He lived a horrible short life here in this world. Mom says at the rainbow bridge all dogs are happy and cared for. There is no hunger, pain, or abuse there. He was named by the people on Facebook, so that he had a name when he crossed over. Dad stayed up until 2.30 am talking to him. He explained that he would have a better life somewhere else. He then slipped into what seemed to be a coma and never opened his eyes again. The vet said to mom that even if by some miracle he survived then he would be totally paralysed for the rest of his life and not even able to lift his head. We are so sad for him and all the others out there. Mom will be a property charity soon and she says she will be able to help more. RIP Friday Boy.

I am so sorry that Friday Boy is gone, but he got a name and time with a family, and that meant the world to him, and he's in a better place
