My Dear Friend Pip

 Dear friends it is with a very heavy heart mom and I
come in today to tell you my Sweetheart Pip
will be traveling to the Rainbow bridge today
at 11:30 am central time.
Last night we received an email telling us he
was very sick.  A portion of the email is below:

He has had a terrible few days - not eating, labored breathing, very weak to the point where his legs sometimes give out on him. I had hoped that he would bounce back as he has so many times, but I don't think he is going to this time ...
 Our vet believes his body is shutting down and he may have had a stroke. The breathing issues may be more to do with his trachea collapsing than his heart issues. I'm still processing everything ...they have given him some pain medication for the night and in the morning we will make the decision. He is sleeping quietly next to me as I type. Last night he was up all night panting and pacing - every few steps he would fall over.
Pip's mom asked that we prepare a post letting his friends know of his trip and to tell you all he loves you,
thanks you all for your prayers this past year
and most of all he thanks you all for
allowing him to complete his Bucket List
earlier this year.

Pip's Mom hopes to have a post up later this weekend.

Dear Pip and Family Blogville is a better place from knowing you!!
My heart hurts Pip but  I want to tell you it was an honor to have you say YES when I asked you to be my 
Valentine this Year.   
I will always remember you in your bow tie
with cheese on your chin hair.
With lots of love and Hugs
 Madi your best friend forever!!
