Billy's Wild Ride has now truly come to an end. Yesterday, with help from the vet, he quietly slipped away while laying in my lap.
Billy was 15. He had a stroke last spring, and I wasn't sure how long he would make it, but he gave us another year. And he never lost his ranking amongst our other dogs; what a guy! Yesterday was a very sad day, and he has left a big, big hole.
I remember when I first saw him on the BRAT site so long ago; how excited we were while his Wild Ride was making it's way here; and how he took the pain away of losing Sunny. Now they are both gone. I would visit his site every now and again http://basenjis.homestead.com/billy.html but I don't think I can go there just yet….
