As I am sitting here writing this I am frustrated that the photos I want, the photos that best represent Julie, are on disks somewhere and I am too tired to go and look for them. My head is pounding. I've cried a million tears today.
Levi lays on the floor on several blankets with several more on top of him, the fire raging trying to get him warm. I got a phone call from the school today. Levi had gone down. He was in a seizure. What? When did it start? I'm silent.
How can this be happening? How can it be that our Levi went down at the same time as something he had no idea was happening. Julie. Levi's angel dog Julie was going to have a rest now.
|This was taken this morning before taking Julie to the vet. Henny Penny covered her in her blankie and put her pillow pet under Julie's head. You can see the look on Julie's face. She is not well. This is not the face that Julie usually wears.|
I'm trying to wrap my brain around this day. This morning when I got The Native's up for school it was very apparent that something was wrong with Julie. She wouldn't come downstairs and when I finally coaxed her to, she wouldn't eat or drink. I wish I had video of what a spaz she is in the morning until she gets her food. It is quite humorous. Not this morning......... I called the vet and made an appointment and then got The Native's off to school. I figured maybe Julie had eaten something. Had her bowels blocked. No biggie. Only, it was a biggie. We didn't know that Julie had a tumor and it had ruptured. She had very little time left to live. She went peacefully. For that I am grateful. She didn't suffer.
Then the phone call from the school. Levi, at about the same time Julie left this world, went into a seizure. He's down and not coherent. He's not responding when talked to.
Levi doesn't know about Julie yet. He's still not coherent. He is still having seizures. Levi doesn't know, but his spirit obviously does........ and his spirit is in deep mourning as we all are............
I believe in miracles. Julie is proof of miracles and how she came to be Levi's dog. (Click on link for story). I know that just as Heavenly Father brought her to Levi, he has called her home to rest. She's worked hard and taken such good care of our Levi. I know that our Father loves Levi very much. He has something in store for him. I don't know what, but I do know, that someday, when Levi leaves this earth life, there will be a miracle dog named Julie waiting for him on the other side.
