In Memory of LT

Today was a tough day. We had to put LT to sleep after his long bTtke with congestive heart failure. He outlived all the expectations the cardiologist gave him and had a good life considering. He's been a part of our family for 7 years. LT was Juan and my first dog together, our first baby. He had so many issues and we spent so much time working with him to get him to be the good dog he was in the end. LT was loyal, loving and most of all the protective and good to the kids. He loved them dearly once he became accustomed to having kids in our house. I never imagined he would be the dog we trusted most and who guarded the kids bedroom doors at night. LT was a different dog but an extra special one to me. I'll remember all the good times we had in the short 7 years we had him. He left us too soon but I know he is finally peaceful and resting.
Callie did surprisingly well with the news considering. She cried for only a few minutes and then seemed to move on. We read a book about Dog heaven and then she cried a little bit at bedtime that she missed LT. But otherwise she seems ok. Better than Juan and I did with saying goodbye. Rest in peace our little buddy we will miss you! 


An oldie but goodie of the kids with their dog.
