I have some very sad news. My little Louie has passed away. He was a little shit, but he was my little shit and I will always love him dearly. A few days ago Louie began to have horrible seizures. I rushed him to the ER, and they were able to sedate him and stop him from seizing. The vet wanted to give Louie an MRI to determine if he was epileptic or had something worse. I left Louie at the vet overnight so that he could stabilize and have an MRI the next morning. Before his MRI, I got a call saying he hadn't had an episode and was doing much better. He was even growling at the vet, so he was back to acting like himself again. About an hour later I got a very different call. During the MRI, Louie's heart stopped beating, and they could not resuscitate him.
I had an epileptic dog before, and Louie's seizures were some of the worst I'd ever seen. It all happened so suddenly. I wasn't expecting this at all, and I'm still in a state of shock. It feels very, very strange not to have him around. The house seems quite without him growling at everything. I miss him terribly, but at least I know he's not suffering anymore. I want to thank all of my friends and family who've reached out to me since Louie's passing. It really means a lot to me. RIP Louie.
