We had to have Noah put to sleep 12/29/09. He had started to go down hill a couple of months ago. Christmas Eve, he started coughing non stop and it just wore him out. I took him to our Vet and while we were there, he had a Grand Mal siezure. From there, we went to the hospital where they kept him overnight and run several tests on him.
His glucose level was down to 19 which is what caused the seizure. The tests showed that he had developed Cushings Disease and that threw his insulin level off. Normal liver enzymes in a dog are around 300. Noah's was 2200. He also, had arthritis, he was blind, he was losing weight and had become more and more confused. He wouldn't have gotten any better and if we had brought him home, he would have kept going down hill and had more seizures.
I know, it was the right thing to do, but it hurts so much. My heart is truly broken in a million pieces.
A big thanks to those who have been sending thoughts and prayers our way. It's much appreciated.
My baby is an angel now and I know that he's not suffering anymore. He'll be in my heart forever and I'll never stop loving him.

That's what we ask,
The truth is,
we may never
be able to know
for sure why.
But we do know
that there is no single
"should have done"
or "could have done"
or "did" or "didn't do"
that would have
changed that why.
All that love could do
Noah's family, We were sorry to hear about Noah. We know he has given your family great joy and wonderful memories and you will miss him. Teddy and Casey
