"I told you the time will come. That time has been past due, but here we are and now it's official!" I said what I meant and did what I said. Bob knew this day would come and today was his turn to officially retire from our breeding program! He will live out the rest of his years in peace on the farm. As I held him in my arms while he awoke from anesthesia I was glad I could be there for him at his most vulnerable and comfort him. It'll be interesting to see if anything changes or if he becomes more content. He's always been a high energy dog so I doubt much will slow him down but it may help him with certain frustrations if you know what I mean! Haha.
We love you Bob dog!
