Bruno’s final appointment to the vet was set for the following day, Saturday September 18, 2010.
In less than twenty-four hours my best friend of thirteen plus years would be physically gone from my life but also be pain free. I kept our afternoon and evening consistent with our regular routine and stayed positive.
The following morning Bruno’s breakfast consisted of steak, scrambled eggs and doggy cookies. Our morning routine was completed around 8:00 a.m. and now the wait began. We hung out and the next four hours passed slowly. There was nothing to really do but wait and this was excruciating for me. I was ready to do this and get it over.
Noon finally arrived and I began to get things prepped to depart. I could wait no longer. Bruno was excited (as always) to be “going” and I loaded him into my vehicle for his final car ride.
