We lost Baby Brutus at 2AM today.
He ate, played, slept and was perfectly normal Sunday, until I went to bed at 5AM. Then he wouldn't get up for Dan on Monday around 9, so the boys rushed him to the emergency Vet.
He had an inflammatory disease, along with a fever; they also found elbow dysplaysia. He was on IV antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. He started going downhill around midnight, and, just like that, it was over.
We are all brokenhearted, and poor Dan is devastated. Dan was Brutus' person, and we all knew it. I don't know how to comfort him.
Farewell, Baby Brutus. We only had you for 3 months, but you were loved, and you will be missed.
