Wilson’s Final post

Wilson was probably the best puppy on the planet. Not only was he the cutest puppy—and he knew it…people would stop me on the street to tell me how beautiful my dog was—but he was also turning into a REALLY great dog. Unfortunately, last weekend Wilson decided to eat a corncob without telling mommy or daddy and by the time we realized he had done it, it was several days later and he was very sick. (We haven’t even eaten corn yet this year so we’re not sure where he found it.) See, a corncob is apparently the perfect size and texture to get caught in the intestines so that no food can pass through. He went into the animal hospital on Wednesday morning (tax day—now I have yet another reason to truly HATE tax day) and he died during surgery. He was too weak at that point to survive anaesthesia and the corncob had already wreaked havoc on his intestines. I am still a bit of a wreck (Simon is devastated), but I figured since all of you met Wilson on the blog that it would be appropriate to say goodbye to him on the blog as well. So here’s to my amazing pup, who I will always love with all of my heart:)

Just a random pic at around 10 weeks. Doesn’t he look like a teddy bear?

He was so excited when he discovered bubble baths. I used to have to lock him out of the bathroom:)

Wilson also loved yogurt. I just think this pic is adorable!
