The Three Musketeers

This is so hard. The Three Musketeers are together again. They are having a party at the Rainbow Bridge, but I'm not invited. Mufasa came to us at the approximate age of five over ten years ago. He's struggled with so many physical issues over the years. Yesterday, his body had enough, and we helped him join his best friends, TyTy and Texas.

We lost Texas suddenly several months ago. His story is totally amazing. Twenty-two pound Texas was healthy as can be for the 16 years he lived at the Sanctuary, having come to us at the age of three. One day, I found him inside a cubby - he had quietly and suddenly passed.
We were more like the Four Musketeers, and one day we will be together again. One can only hope.


Today's x-rays revealed a tumor on TyTy's spleen and several in his lungs. One lung was completely obstructed. His gastrointestinal system was harmed from all the coughing he had been doing. Ty was bleeding internally, and at the end on our walk behind the vet's office, blood poured from his nose and mouth. He still tried to be brave for me. He wanted to walk, so we did. But then he was ready. I was going to bring him home and have Lap of Love come, but in reality - the best place for him to leave me was HIS car. Dr. Pierce and vet tech Amy were kind enough to come to the car to administer the sedative and the euthanasia dose. Ty departed quickly and peacefully.

Here are just a "few" pictures of our moments together over the past 10-1/2 years. There are so many more pics...but for now, these will do. Thank you for indulging me.

Thank you all for your words of encouragement and love and for your financial generosity. Dr. Pierce said to me, "You are looking at $10-20K in diagnostics, which aren't going to change a thing. If I thought it would, I'D pay for them."

I don't know what else to say. I am devastated. Ty and I were joined at the hip for all these years. We were supposed to leave the planet together - we made a pact. But his body just couldn't wait any longer. As I would sing to Ty: "Do you know how much I love you? Do you know how much I really care?"

TyTy is being cremated at Fosters, and his ashes are being returned to me. I'm having them make me a necklace with some of his ashes. I will show you when it's here.

I want to express my deepest appreciation to Dr. Robert Pierce at VCA Saint Francis Veterinary Hospital in Shady Hills, and to Amy, vet tech. You both made this impossible situation bearable. TyTy left us in his favorite place on Earth - HIS CAR! Truly, words can't express my gratitude to you.

Happy Tails!
