Newton, a friend to all fell ill to Chronic Kidney Disease in early Dec. 2012. A routine teeth cleaning, with an optional box clicked for bloodwork brought to light what Newton had been a victim of for quite some time. Very stoic, our dear boy never complained, whined or gave any indication, which is why our world was shattered when we found out the terrible news. His life span went from an estimated 4 yrs, to 6 months to 1 week… 1 WEEK!
How do you fit in a lifetime of gratitude, a lifetime of love and affection in just 1 short week. We brought him home and tried.
The last week of his life was full of love, visitors, amazing food and most of all us. He had us with him every step of the way, until his last.
I know all owners say this about their dogs – but he was special. To know him, to even meet him was instant love. He smiled all the time, his love for people, other animals and life was infectious. Newton was the perfect companion, able to go anywhere and more – Wanting to go everywhere.
I take from him a lifetime of love, life lessons about kindness, gratitude, loyalty and above all – pure love. He was my very best friend, the true love of me and my fiance. We miss him every day.
R.I.P my very dear friend – Yours Forever,
Newton: August 29, 2010 – Dec. 20, 2012
