I lost my beloved pet companion of almost 10 years Franz-Josef or "Beanie" as I lovingly called him today (Saturday May 18). I had been gone 4 weeks visiting my family in Montana and upon return Sunday,  he had lost weight and was vomiting. I took him this past Tuesday to the vet clinic and they did blood work and found his blood sugar to be dangerously high. There was hope during the week of saving him. He was lucid the whole time. I took him for a short walk on Thursday.  I rescued Beanie from the animal shelter. My hunch was that he had belonged to an elderly person and upon their death he had no place to go. I gathered this from his sensitive nature and that he seemed to have been spoiled. I don't know exactly how old he was (anywhere between 12 and 13 would be a good guess). Right now I am feeling a very deep loss and sense of emptiness. He was very dear to my heart. I asked God for a miracle to spare him for a few more years but it was not mean't to be. I humbly ask you to remember me in your prayers. I miss him beyond measure... Thank you LORD for this great gift.

He was a very fortunate little dog to have been rescued by so devoted a Master, and to have been nurtured, protected and cherished to the end by such a generous, loving Friend.

Hello, Servus.

I came by to read your latest posts, and more importantly to check-up on your little dog. I see that he has died.

Be assured of my prayers. Being a spiritual man, you know that somehow suffering is good for us.

God bless you always!

Hello Fiat,

I thank you ever so much for your kind words. May God bless you. I shall only know in eternity what this little sacrifice has wrought. I miss him terribly. I thank you for your prayers. I look forward to the spiritual kingdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ of which Isaiah spoke:

Isaias 11:6-9
The wolf shall dwell with the lamb: and the leopard shall lie down with the kid: the calf and the lion, and the sheep shall abide together, and a little child shall lead them. The calf and the bear shall feed: their young ones shall rest together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp: and the weaned child shall thrust his hand into the den of the basilisk. They shall not hurt, nor shall they kill in all my holy mountain, for the earth is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the covering waters of the sea.
