Yesterday was Spiky’s last day. His seizures had stopped, but he was pacing 24 hours a day and began yipping with a strange sound. After many discussions and a consultation with the vet Spiky went to the vet for the last time. Today Don and Sandy will bury their little buddy here on the property he called home.
Here is Don and Sandy’s lovely estate in the Kettle Moraine Forest.
Jean and I did some sight seeing in Sheboygan in the afternoon. It’s a beautiful time of year as the leaves begin to turn color…a bit later each year. Lake Michigan, the midwest’s mini-ocean, was a pretty as a picture, so we took several.
Late in the afternoon we met up with Steve Kreutz, my little brother from Big Brothers. We hadn’t seen each other since 1977 and assured ourselves that neither of us had changed a bit. Yeah, sure!
Steve has two grown kids and three grandchildren! It was great fun to remember things we did together way back then and to learn about what’s happening in our lives these days. I am very thankful that he took the initiative to find me after all these years.
We returned home in the evening to learn of Spiky’s passing. That called for some quiet talk in the living room with cups of hot cocoa before going to bed.
