I don't know the full details, Lucius's Dad, Brent, my human step brother isn't a big talker. Especially about matters of the heart. Lucius is an adopted Boston Terrier from a rescue organization in Raleigh. My step brother went down there with a friend to check out another dog (for the friend) and he seen Lucius there. It was instant love. Like most singles with pets in their 20's, Lucius has helped his Dad through some rough times and two breakups with major girlfriends.
When he first got Lucius he was moving in with us to stay while he was working on his new house. Like most projects it took longer than it was supposed to. So, Lucius lived with us for 6 months. He is part of our family. When Brent has to go out of town for work, we keep Lucius.
Lucius has a Mommy too. Brent's major girlfriend #2. She gets visitation with him. So, lets not forget to purr for her too.
Okay, now that you know the story. Boston Terriers have chronic stomach issues. And Lucius has had plenty through the years. Lucius is 5 years old BTW. Our Dad told Mom on Thursday that Lucius is sick again. She asked "is it his stomach" and he said "yes". So, she didn't think anything about it. A $200. vet bill and some meds will take care of it she thought. Well, last night Dad came in and said Little Lucius might die. Naturally, Mom got Brent on the phone right away. Lucius went to Doc. Thur. evening and Doc had no answers. Friday he went back for a Colonscopy. Nothing was found. They sent him home with some special food and told Brent if he's not doing better to bring him back Monday and they will do X-rays to see if they can find blockage that way. Brent says he whimpers when you touch his stomach. He did poop and eat a little Saturday morning. Brent says he was drinking water like a mad man but that all stopped come afternoon and ate or drank nothing Sat. night. Brent is coming over this afternoon, so Mom will ask how he's doing today.
Our Dad has a big heart and can't handle death at all. He's also talking about Marley and Me a lot, too. He's very worried. Mom is thinking about how special that bond is with your very first fur roomie. It's your own house, and the only person there waiting for you is your pet. What a blessing they are in that time of your life.
So, please purr and if you have barkers in your family ask them to bark a prayer for little Lucius and everybody his presence has touched.
P.s. Mom has been meaning to do a new video of us, after hearing the news last night, she went ahead and did that. At the beginning and at the end is clips of Diamond and Lucius wrestling on the bed. Mom keeps trying to catch me on film but I'm too quick to get caught.
Sending lots and lots of purrs for little Lucius! We hope his tummy gets better!! Purrs for your family, too!!
Sending ooodles of purrs to little Lucius!
Sending lots and lots of purrs! Pets are definitely part of the family and it is always stressful when they become sick ~ we hope he feels better soon!
We're purring for you all. It can be so scary sometimes when you love someone. We love you all.
We love you guys! Thanks for the purrs. Brent hasn't came by yet but it shouldn't be long. Mom is planing on cooking at 5.
