Goodbye Kobe

Today I write with a deep sadness as we have lost a member of our pack. Our beloved Shiba Inu Kobe had to be euthanized.

He had a seizure Sunday evening & he had to be taken to the emergency veterinarian. We were able to bring him home after he received a morphine injection for pain. As you can imagine we had a fairly sleepless night watching over him.

By morning it was clear he was failing, the renal disease was more advanced than we knew. We did all we could and ultimately the kindest thing was to let him go peacefully.

We are torn up with grief about this. Our veterinarian Dr. Simmons gave Kobe the best fighting chance but the little guy couldn't make it.

Thank you to Dr. Simmons & staff at Cumberland for the excellent care since we adopted Kobe 9 years ago.

We'll miss your smile..........
