     November 9. 2019 was a very sad day for us here in Portland, as we said good-bye to our dear little guy, Eddie.  He was an amazing being, a great friend, entertainer, and a sage!  Guru Ed svanacarya param ananta! 

     He was diagnosed with kidney disease over two years ago and we were fortunate to have done a decent job keeping him healthy and thriving.  This past summer was a bit more labor intensive to keep him going, and he really began to act like an ‘old’ dog. This Fall he really slowed down but there were always things he would act exuberant about in mind & spirit not as much in body!  Last night he really seemed to be very lethargic and had not had good food consumption for two days.  Today he woke up but was unable to stand on his own and after going to the vet in the early a.m. and running a panel of blood tests it was pretty clear to us what we should do.

     We chose to have a vet come to the house.  Eddie received a Gabapentin shot in the morning and that kept him comfortable, so we could bring him home and cuddle him up in his own comfortable place.  He was curled up in my lap when the vet came to our house and the whole process was peaceful and a good pace.  We were given lots of space and time to say good-bye, lots of forehead kisses and words of love to him.  Intense and full of love.

     We are missing him immensely, there is a huge void for such a small dog (he would bristle at that! ).  He was BDIALDB~ big dog in a little dogs body…JOTS ~ Johnny on the spot, and full name Eduardo Sanchez Leon!  He was a force! 

     Lots of Love~~ Beth and Steve

Rest in Peace, little boy!!
