Today, I am very sad. We had Mr.Pezzo euthanized this morning. I am at a loss and feel i am missing my best friend just now. He was really my sons dog but i just loved this little guy so much. He was there for me during some very difficult times in my life. I could always count on him for an understanding glance or an affectionate nudge. We walked the hills together for hours at a time when my days were bleak. He and I spent many New Years eves together as my son was away or celebrating in his own way. I loved the time we spent together and consider those evenings to be my most enjoyable. I am not sure what else can compare with how difficult this was. I've watched helplessly as the mother of my children died. I was there with my Father as his life ended and also for my Mother as she took her last labored breath. The pain of this is as great as those times. This morning we all walked into the hospital together, Mr.Pezzo trusting and comforted by our presence. We came out alone and without the once confident swagger of our faithful friend and companion. He was affectionately called many things. Mr. Poo, Mr. Pooper-de-doos, and Pezzo. He is now a memory and there will never be another like him.
