    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.

    Looks like he had some kind of personality - growing a beard like ZZ Top and sticking his tongue out when a picture is being snapped. I miss him already.
    So sorry Evo.

    He did have an incredible personality.

    Thanks again everyone for the kind thoughts. I am still in shock. I held in him my arms just this morning.

    If you decide to get another dog anytime soon, please adopt a shelter dog, and share posts and pix. Everybody needs a home.

    Love,

    It will be awhile. I just held him in my arms this morning. It's not real to me yet. I still feel his presence.

    I have always saved shelter dogs, Spawn got the FB because she had researched the qualities she wanted in a dog. Then she started college and realized she wouldn't have enough time between work and school to give him the time and affection he would need, so she gave him to me.

    I'm sorry Evo, I can't begin to imagine how horrible that must feel. I don't know what I would do if something happened to my dog.
