I am getting ready

Dear friends,

I am getting ready to walk over the rainbow bridge. My body is tired and my tummy feels yucky most of the time. I do not like to eat very much anymore. Not even popcorn.

I am still going on Walks and my people are going very slow when I want to go slow. Sometimes I go faster to sniff something interesting. And I like to sniff the Bad Squirrels that are living under our house. But mostly I just want to sleep.

The people have tried many medicines for me. At first the medicines helped, but now I still feel yucky. Even the new medicines aren't helping, and I don't want to swallow them anymore. My body is very wobbly and my fur has patches where it doesn't grow anymore.

I have had a very good life, but soon it will be time to go. I am twelve years old. I have done agility and nosework and search-and-rescue tracking and treibball and canine freestyle. I get Walks or hikes every day. I have had many adventures in the forest, on mountain tops, at the beach and in the snow. I always come when called, even now. I know how to do many tricks.

And I am tired.

Please do not be sad, friends. I am happy. Right now I am spending time with my people, and soon I will cross the bridge. I am almost ready.

Many years ago my people named me Cobi. I am a Good Dog.

I am so very sorry. I have enjoyed reading Cobi's blog for many years now from far away. (New Zealand) He is a very good dog.

Oh Cobi, you are such a good dog, and you have lived a rich and wonderful life, full of love right to the end, and we are trying hard not to feel sad, but I'm afraid I did see a little tear in Gail's eye when she read this.
Sending love and hugs,
Bertie and Gail.
