My beloved dog, my best friend, and constant companion Ricco (aka The Fruit Bat) passed away suddenly today. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure Thursday, but I was told that with medication he should have another couple of years. He was due to have tests this week and start medication. Early this morning he had severe breathing problems and Evo Child and I drove him to the vet where they were going to give him oxygen and start the tests. They called at 12:30pm and told me that he passed away. I love you Ricco. I will never forget you. If there is a heaven for him, it is filled with the cats he loved so much.
