A Day of Sadness – RIP Astro

I had planned to write my next post today, but ended up instead spending most of the day at the vet. First our regular vet, then the emergency vet.

The morning started off fine, then our standard poodle suddenly seemed really sick. It turned out he had bloat (aka gastric volvulus), and he passed away this morning at only six years old.

At least he had a good life, with lots of hikes and opportunities to play in the snow.

We’ll miss you, Astro.
