He also looked at us longingly but if we tried to console him he would walk away (walking being difficult). I wanted to stay up but having done that the better part of 2 nights and with my own pains, I couldn't.

But he is now a peace and isn't hurting. We had made the decision when we went to bed that we would take him to the vet in the morning...it was time. But now we don't have to carry out that decision. Violet seems a little better and is her usual self trying to console us.

I will miss my little man, but I have so many good memories and I just couldn't stand to see him so sick.

RIP, Joie. You were loved so much.

Laurie, I am so sorry for your loss. JoAnn

It is so hard to let them go, even when you know in your heart that is the best for the pet, and you. I cry every time, and cry some more. Hope and wish that you are crying a bit, but moving on with you other animals. Cuddle up with your other doggie and cry, cry, cry. I've done it many times myself.

And yes, great story Tom.

I'm just wondering what (in the second to last paragraph) "...(we lost) he told me that he went 2 for 2, so our head coach gave him the game ball." means.

i think it means that he got on base twice on two at-bats.

I just returned from the dreaded trip to Wally World. I was getting low on several items, but when I only have about 1/4 cup of olive oil left, it's time to get a move on. Brunch as I drove home was a Slim Jim and a Hershey bar with almonds.

Thanks, everyone, for your condolences and encouragement. I have had a few good cries, and I even had a session where I just didn't want to believe it and wanted him back, but for the most part I have a peace about it. Violet is sticking close to us but I think even she understands he isn't suffering. I think her being the one to find him was the best for all of us.

Today is get back to reality day. We have been off our diets through all of this, eating takeout, Chinese with TB's parents, etc. and today it's back to our watching our intolerances.

We are going to remove all of Joie's things except his two favourite toys which Violet seems to be moving all over the house - we will let her have them just for a little while.

We are also going to start doing serious thinking about whether we continue renovating this place the way we want it or just getting it in shape to sell and move closer to family and TB's work (still not far from here, but more convenient).

I have a horrid task ahead...cooking up 3 pounds of bacon ends and pieces, mostly for the bacon grease. The package was $2 off regular price. I use the bacon bits in my salads and soups.

So, I will be filling the apartment with the smell of bacon...

I cooked up two pounds of bacon this morning for breakfast and future uses. I actually didn't need the fat...

The ends and pieces have to be cut into uniform sizes so they cook the same. I don't know why we seem to run out of fat so fast...
