Completely Boxer Crazy
I haven't posted on Boxer World for a very long time. Boxer World helped me get through the loss my female boxer, Magic. However, now I am back to honor Deeg, my rescue boxer, who as of this morning is no longer with me. He suffered for a very long time with a spinal injury he received during a knee repair surgery. The spinal epidural damaged his nerves, and he never recovered. After months of watching him deteriorate, I couldn't stand to see him struggle any longer. When I first rescued Deeg, it took forever to win his heart but when I finally did he was so loving. I will never forget the joy I felt when he decided I was his forever person. He looked deep into my eyes and from that day, I knew things would be okay between us. You would have been amazed by how smart Deeg was; he was a master at figuring things out. For years, I've told people he could be a survivalist and that if something happened to me, and I couldn't get home; he would manage to run the entire household without me. It's so unfair that each of my boxers deaths were caused by a procedure at their veterinary clinic. I think of what could have been and get so angry when I do. I think about luck and how I don't seem to have it when making medical decisions for my boxer friends. This morning I held Deeg so tight, and with tears and anguish, I begged and pleaded to be more than just an ordinary person. I cried for a miracle, for another chance and to go back in time so that I could make different choices but nothing happened and so I had to say my final goodbye. I love you Deeg, you were so amazing....I will never forget you my rescue boy.
