I'm back dear bloggers/readers. I was at West Point, NY visiting my son, his lovely wife and my raviolis...Kit Kat, Kells Bells and the Conman. Had a blast with my grandchildren and a marvelous time in NY. I get so homesick for the northeast when I visit. Good food, beautiful countryside and "da king's english is spoke." LOL
He is 15 years old and I cannot imagine life without this wonderful creature. I'm thankful that my honey was home to assist him. Kota was running to the door and barking at the salesman when his bark changed and he had difficultly walking. He was terribly embarrassed by the drunken walk he immediately had and tried hiding in our bedroom closet.
Last winter's snow fall on our deck. The coyote would come out in him when it snowed and he would howl and prance and hop in the snow with abandon.

He is doing much better this morning, but has difficulty drinking water as his neck is a little stiff. His bark is a little off too. Sweet baby. He can recover from the GVS but it takes up to three weeks. He is an old guy of 15 years...a very long dogs life and especially for a coyote/dog hybrid mix. He is the sweetest 4-legged I have ever had in my life and I have been emotionally preparing myself for when he crosses over these past few months, but this was so unexpected. I'm not one of those who will prolong his life for my sake. I will not allow him pain or discomfort, I will not allow him to exist for my sake. He has been a faithful and loving companion and I will willingly allow him to cross over to his doggie heaven where he can eat unlimited treats, chase tree rats with abandon, hide beneath a butterfly bush and snooze on any bed he finds until I see him again.
For now, he is happy, without pain and barking at the tree rats (squirrels) so we will continue as a pack. He is such a good boy. Blessings to you and those you love and especially all creatures great and small. Sea Witch
