What’s that i see?

Hi Evfurry..it’s me Forrest..

Now i want to first thank evfurry for the well wishes and the POTP i really feel it..Mum and Dad do too and they appreciate that so many people are sending such love down under to us all.

Here’s the thing i am an old pup..i have won the war against the Eastern Brown snakes twice! yes twice!

I have battled with separation anxiety for 6 years also..i am tough..but i am also getting tired.

I am 12 years old and it seems i am not going to get to be a teenager after all..

No driving cars ..no drinking..no rabble rousing..

Mum and Dad had the visit with me today and Dr Mark and the peeps spoke for a long time..so long that i milked it for all the liver treats i could!

The xrays show my discs on my neck are really squished..and even with acupuncture they will never be the same.I risk eventual neurological problems which will be awful.

They are hurting me and with pain killers and yesterdays acupuncture i was still yelping in pain and finding it hard to lift my head and turn right..this is what makes Mum and Dad cry..

My xrays showed i have an enlarged heart and next to it a big lymph node..Mum says i have the heart of a lion.

I also have some bone issues at my sacrum which is why i have a bit of trouble sitting.

Ok so here is the thing..to have a surgery is no option ..it is a pretty brutal surgery …the acupuncture would mean sedation every time i had it and it would be a daily thing for a week with no change to the long term outcome.

Mum and Dad do not want to ever find me collapsed or see me in pain and have that as their last memory or more importantly MY last memory.

So for the next week i am having my BARKIT LIST i am going to be spoiled rotten and have as much fun as i can..i am on very strong pain meds so i am fine.

I started tonight by having roast chicken dinner WITH skin and boy was it so good!

I have of course had the farts but Mum says i can fart as much as i want.

Next Wednesday Mum and Dad will have Dr Mark come to MY house..yep he can come here now ..and i will say goodbye at home with Doc Marbles Cleo Pickles Dinnermintz Mum and Dad by my side..the weekend all my human brothers and sisters are coming up and they are all bringing BANNED treats!

Please do not be sad i have had such a super happy life of adventure..i have and always will be loved and cherished..i am in no pain..it is just Mum and Dad who are hurting.

Today was hard..they have cried and cried..tomorrow they will too..but i have made them promise to be brave..because i need them to be strong for me.

I can see something ahead of me..i do not know what but i am sure when i get there it will be pretty darn good..

I will be back later to tell you more of what i do on my BARKIT list..we can do this together..

Paw pats Forrest..

*pee ess Mum might take a time to respond..she is pretty leaky eyed most times…

Oh Forrest my down under sweet friend……leaky eyes will be the “norm” for all of us you know even though you’re having the time of your long and lovely life with your BARKIT List until next Wednesday…..we love that your Mum and Dad are giving you everything in their hearts and souls and on your wish list (!) for this send off.

You keep taking your happy pills dear boy – keep smiling – keep loving every minute……just like we love you and always will.

  10. Sweet Forrest we tired but there is no way that we can’t be sad at hearing this news. One thing that does not make us sad though is that you are going to have a super, wonderful week and get to say goodbye at home with all of your loving family. We are keeping all of you close to our heart, in our thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs Maggie, Chancy and Pooh.

  11. Oh Fozzie …… have the best week you possibly can mate. You’re one lucky pup, you know. Your Mum and Dad are the best. Tell ’em from me that magnum’s are the best things in the world. Harri and Lucy got one just before our Vet, Peter, came to our house to put them at peace. They’d NEVER been allowed one before. I’m going to have one one day too but hopefully not for a long time, aye?? I get some of that chicken skin from time to time. OMD!! that’s good stuff, aye? AND stuffing!! That’s good too but I don’t get that unless I sneak it. Mum and I send our love and hugs to you all. xxxxx

  20. Lordy me Forrest, you are a brave dude! I love the idea of a Barkit List and you are very fortunate to have one. What a life you have had….winning the war with the brown snakes twice…..you sure showed those boogers. I want you to know we are thinking of you and your family. I have heard life is pretty tough for those left behind when we move onto the next life. Don’t worry Forrest, all of us here in Blogville will make sure your mom is ok and in time will relax and quit fretting. You need to enjoy your Barkit List my friend. Power of the paw to you and yours.
