it’s been a while since I last wrote to you and I truly apologise.
I assume you have all started this new year with positive energy and with the intention to make this year special; filled with lots of happy moments.
I also wanted to start the new year with good vibes only, but things turned out differently. Today one of my special friends (whom I shared a cage with in the shelter) has died.
Cesar and I met about 2 years ago when we became room mates. He was older than me (about 8 years older) and was found wondering the streets alone. When he was caught and brought to the shelter, it turned out that he had a chip identification, but unfortunately the phone number linked to this chip didn’t match 😦 Everybody was hoping that the owner(s) would show up eventually looking for their beloved dog. But days turned into weeks, weeks into months, and months into years and nobody ever came. So when I was adopted, I said my goodbye’s to Cesar and wished him the best of luck. But luck wasn’t on his side. A few weeks ago, he started to loose hair and when he was taken to the vet, he was diagnosed with Leishmania and heartworm. He was put into quarantaine and treated with medication. When he seemed to get a bit better, he relapsed and today he passed away.
Dear Cesar, I will always remember you and will cherish the time we shared together.
