Not that anyone noticed
Anyway, now that I'm finally living on my own (Since Feb 4th! woohoo!) and things are finally normalizing, I'm spending more time on DA
I can't wait to get back into PhotoHunt, nor can I wait to get back into taking photos on a regular basis
Ain't nobody the boss of me, now, haha
Life is going well, for once. I got rid of a bunch of drama, crappy people and bullshit from my life.
I DO HAVE SOME SAD NEWS, THOUGH.
I know lots of people loved my little midget chihuahua boy, Maverick.... Sadly, Maverick passed away in March, shortly after his 2nd birthday. His tiny little liver had a shunt (which is also why he was so little) and coupled with his hydrocephalus, the his body wasn't clearing wastes and toxins from his blood stream efficiently and he ended up going systemic. I left for work on March 13th and he was his happy little self.. rushed home after receiving a phone call that he was having convulsions and took him to the vet... he was on an IV all day and was looking better, but crashed as soon as they took him off of it. He was transferred to the Emergency Vet Hospital and the prognosis was grim: It was highly unlikely that he'd survive and I needed to make the decision to put him down, or make him suffer through treatments that would only prolong his life for hours. It was an obvious decision and I went in the holding room and gave my little man some loves, told him how sorry I was that there was nothing more anyone could do and held him one last time... when I put him back in his bed, I went to tell the doctor my decision and when I re-entered the room (not more than a minute later), Maverick had passed away on his own accord. The veterinarian couldn't believe that not only was Maverick 2 years old (they kept saying 2 months), but that he couldn't believe that he lived as long as he did with the conditions he had. They called him a Miracle Dog and took special care of his little body- He was individually cremated and I have his ashes in a little floral tin with a certificate of his cremation. I miss my little man so much, still... but I'm so glad to have had the time I had with him.
Hero was lost without Maverick for a few weeks. He'd go to Maverick's bed and sit there and whine for him... He'd look for Maverick in all of the usual hideouts. It took him a few weeks to move on without his little friend, even after I'd removed Maverick's bed, crate, and blankies.
Monty was pretty much unfazed, but then again, he misses being an only dog, so Monty's kind of a dick like that.
