This is Prince. He is probably one of the most handsome dogs I’ve ever seen, and sadly, we had to put him to sleep on Sunday. It was heartbreaking – he’d started exhibiting disturbing behavior and when the vet evaluated him, we were told he was showing early signs of dementia. Looking back, it’s easy to see the signs – confusion, terror when we’d leave the house, not eating – and we knew he’d only get worse. We said our goodbyes, and he went to sleep peacefully.
I do miss him – he had the softest ears and I loved petting them. He used to be very cuddly but recently stopped wanting affection (another sign of dementia), and he was very smart.
I do miss him a lot – I was much more sad than I expected to be, but it’s getting better as the days pass.
