My boy’s getting better every day. And I do hope he’ll make it. The dreaded Friday’s vet visit might be the last for some time.
His illness has put everything into perspective. There are things that matter more than anything else: people, pets that are our family, emotions and feelings.
The frequent and long visits to the vet have made Brian scared of leaving the house. He walks with Lily but as we are working on preventing reactivity I need to take him out on his own sometimes. Today was the first time I could go back to thinking about our action plan-I took him to the little park nearby where he met his friend, played with her a bit and looked rather happy.
I keep thinking about the inscription on my father’s headstone: ‘omnia sunt hominum tenui pendentia filo (et subito casu, quæ valuere, ruunt)’
This fragile little dog can make or break my life.
