Doc came by the house and we talked. He checked Trooper out but we all already knew the answer.
We went out to the back yard. Doc gave him a relaxant and at about 2:45 the final shot and Trooper passed away. I break out in spasms of new tears as I write that. Lu can't stop crying. I cannot believe my friend is gone.
I can write no more today. I'm taking a week or so to cope and grieve. I'll be back soon.
I am a bag of broken glass.
