On Monday, April 2nd Beau left this world for wherever he is going next. It was very unexpected. On Saturday we noticed that Beau was resting more and then saw that he had diarrhea. I gave him some medicine and later gave him some electrolytes. He drank the electrolytes and water but did not want to eat. On Monday, he seemed a bit better but I called the vet. She gave me some ideas of how to entice him to eat and gave me some iron supplement. But early Monday evening when John went to check on him he was down. We called the vet and as we were talking Beau died. All very sudden.
We took Beau's body to a state lab for some tests to be run but have not had any results yet. The doctor said it could be a wide range of things.
All lives here at Cabin Spring Farm were in a confused, sad, and weary state for days. It is so empty here without Beau, but now we have to carry on and take on new roles to fill in for him.
Here are some pictures that bring back some wonderful memories.
