Oh, shoot. Now I'm crying. You all tried so hard. And even then sometimes you just can't save them.
I wanted so much for him to make it.
When I talked to my vet about this because I was worried about my Tommy's kidneys he told me that autoimmune can attack various organs. You just never know. We were lucky. Her kidneys are fine. But it could just as easily have been us.

After he passed I asked the vet if she had any idea why he was so sick. She said she has a hunch that perhaps as a pup he got into something toxic, rat poison or something, that did systemic damage. He most certainly had more going on than just the autoimmune disease. He also may be an example of the Darwin effect. He had some genetic mutation that made him incompatible with living and reproducing.
He was just so lively, every part of my day reminds me of him. I take a shower and expect him to be at the door waiting to catch the stray drops. Or Keeper barks and I expect to hear him screaming at the other end of the house and come running so he wouldn't miss out on the fun. Or I turn on the hose to water flowers and expect him to bolt between my legs to get the water. I feed the cats and expect to have to yell at him for stalking them. His memory is everywhere. I know I'll enjoy that someday, but it's just breaking my heart right now.
