Like so many other members, I guess it’s time to post the pending passing of my little buddy. Gizmo has reached the point where I’m not doing him any favors by keeping him alive any longer. He contracted Diabetes about 3 years ago and shortly after went blind. About 6 months ago it became obvious he was deaf as well. He received Insulin twice a day which helped but at 14 years old the writing is on the wall. He now refuses to eat and his cognitive skills are significantly diminished. I could go on but you get the picture. The gf and I are taking him out for his last day of kayaking Wednesday morning and then having a vet come to the house in the evening. A great friend and a great loss. I’d burn a truckload of ‘59 Les Pauls if it would help him.
