It has been just over a week since I had to make the hardest decision of my life and put Zeus down. It was a bit of a hard week, for both myself and Blondie.
Blondie still isn’t eating quite properly, only about half as much as she normally does. She is drinking water though, so that is good. She’s eating when she’s hungry so I am not overly worried about it.
I have tried to keep her quite busy and we’ve made many trips to the dog park, I think that has helped her. She has been tired, we tend to go to bed late in the summer and get up early. She has been trying to catch up on her sleep I think. When I have been out for baseball, she has been left out of her crate and has been good – this is something new. She hasn’t chewed on anything that doesn’t belong to her. If this continues until the middle of June or so, I will disassemble her crate and will put it in storage. I am hopeful that she has gotten past that stage.
I received a call from the vet on Friday that Zeus was ready to be collected. I will post a picture of the urn that I purchased for him (later). It looks good and I will always have him with me. I do miss him, likely will for some time and will always remember him. He was my first dog and was a good dog. RIP Zeus. 🙂
On the baseball front, the AAA team split a pair of games this weekend. Lacklustre hitting cost us a win on Saturday, dropping a 7-2 decision to the Dodgers. On Sunday. our ace threw another complete game for a 6-0 victory. I don’t think he’s had a start where it wasn’t a complete game thus far this season. Definitely on of the top pitchers in the league. He made it look easy on Sunday, cruising with only 69 pitches in 7 innings.
With the AA’s, we are doing a reset, starting tonight. We currently sit at 1-7. One win, 2 close losses and 4 blow-outs. When I say blow-out, that is being generous… I don’t think I have ever had a team not come together before like this. Well, maybe that awful season back in 2002, but I try to forget that one…
Anyway, I want to start over. Forget the past month of ball and start with a clean slate. I am hoping that the guys agree with me and they start to do what I think they can do. Guess we will see, we play tomorrow against the team that killed us last week. We meet them again on Thursday as well. It’ll be a good test.
Off to work. Well, not really off, I am already in my office. Enjoy your day and week.
