As a new chapter in our adventures begins, another has come to an end. The end of this chapter was painful, having to say goodbye to Lexy and Pebbles.
The German phrase, Auf Wiedersehen, roughly translates to: I hope to you see you again. This phrase is much better than “goodbye.” Goodbyes are hard, especially when the goodbye seems permanent.
Lexy was 16-years old, and Pebbles was 13-years old. Lexy’s hip dysplasia had been getting progressively worse, making it hard for her to walk, and even get up. Lexy also had a kidney condition, which added to her suffering. Pebbles was diagnosed with a heart condition before we left for the Bahamas — an enlarged heart. The medication we were able to get helped Pebbles get a few more months, but the periodic heart attacks and trouble breathing was too much. A vet came to our home and Lexy, and Pebbles passed together, peacefully, on March 28, 2020 at 10:30 AM.
Lexy was part of our family from day one, and Pebbles was right behind Lexy. They were our best friends in good times and during rough times.
Auf Wiedersehen Lexy and Pebbles.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for us.
