One thing that kept me busy and had me worried was Baloo. He was barely able to get to his feet, and somehow I'd managed to keep him going, but by Thursday I knew he needed to go to the vet. The vet decided to try cold-laser therapy as a tune-up to the same treatment he received back in June in hopes he would get a bounce from it. But by yesterday (Friday) I knew that it hadn't.

In the peaceful setting of an apple orchard Baloo and I spent our last tender moments together.

God-Speed to blue-Baloo. This quiet and gentle, old soul easily took with him a piece of my heart, and I will always have a piece of his in mine.

Baloo's Rainbow color is blue. I've given him that color for several reasons. One is because the cataracts in his eyes sometimes made his eyes look blue. I especially noticed that today. And the color blue can also be one of sadness, which was something that I felt from Baloo. I hope that as he arrives at the Rainbow Bridge, that sadness is replaced with joy and he's able to do something his tired old body wouldn't allow, and that's to run....
Run free Baloo.....
This video of Baloo from about 3 weeks ago, always makes me smile - He loved mealtime and would always grab any nearby bowls! One time, he even grabbed Charlie's while he was still eating!
