My Dearest Boofy passed on yesterday afternoon. 28th June, 2010. A little over one year after her twin sister. So quick, with little time to say goodbye. Diagnosed with renal failure, she passed on as a result of a stroke. During her final hours, she was not herself at all. She was unable to recognise us, which is still very painful to comprehend and accept. It was as though she was a completely different animal. She was scared and frightened, and in such a horrific, sterile environment that reaked of 'vet-death'. This wasn't the the way it was supposed to be. Her sister had the comfort of passing away here, at home, in the sunlight and fresh air that she so often enjoyed and loved to bask in. But most importantly, she knew she was with loved ones; Boofy was deprived of this luxury. And all because of the renal failure medication she was prescribed! My friends, please be aware of what medication you and your furry friends are ordered to take for various ailments. Fortekor was my baby's killer; it is renowned for causing cardio myopathy and strokes, as well as built up fluid in the body. This is what my little one suffered through; so please always look for natural alternatives, for the sake of your furry friend. My precious baby will always be remembered. She is now with her twin sister, with their Creator. I am glad that they are no longer suffering on this Earth, but rather in Heaven, looking down upon us all. I am mourning the loss of a family member, and am selfish for wishing her to stay longer with me on this Earth. My baby girl, you will always be loved. Goodbye.
