Hendrix contracted a liver disease a week ago. We were
told he might be able to come out of it and for a week,
we gave him intensive care. The liver disease came out
of nowhere and it was a complete shock and blow that someone
as healthy as Hendrix has always been could get so sick so fast.
He was always indoors and he had all his vaccinations. We are
at a loss to how this could happen. I know we don't get to keep
our fur-children forever, but we expected many more years with
I just wanted to let you know that Hendrix was put
to sleep last nite. We know that he is safe and
healthy again and not suffering and that we will see
him again someday.
He had been getting better but took a major turn for
the worse yesterday.
Yesterday afternoon, about an hour or so before we
made the decision, we were driving back to our house
and saw a half-rainbow that seemed to start directly
over our home. It didn't go all the way across,
instead its' end was in the clouds. Also, last nite,
I came in from the garage before going to bed and
distinctly heard a bell being rung in the living room.
I thought it must be Neal but he had been all the way
back in the bedroom setting his alarm clocks. We know
that Hendrix went across the rainbow bridge to heaven
yesterday and that he pretty much immediately got his
angel wings. He didn't have to wait and earn
them....God just gave them to him right away. He was
an angel on earth and now he's one in heaven. He
definitely deserved them.
We miss him so much and both of us are heartbroken,
but we are grateful for the time we had with him and
the prayers and good wishes from our friends and
Lorilee and Neal
