Note: I'm so glad to finish and upload this page. It has torn my heart out all over again to have to journal this.
Sunday was our last day in Chattanooga. Our first stop was the Tennessee Aquarium. Penguins! Lemurs! Otters! Dave in a shark cage!!! (He’s gonna need a bigger boat.)
We were hot, and Dave was beyond worn out, but after a cool drink or two we took a double decker bus tour. We had already scheduled it from home, and it set off from right by the aquarium. Rufus was our tour guide, and we learned a lot of things about the local history. Moon Pies were first made right across the river from our hotel!! Yumm!
Dinner was at Sticky Fingers, and this was the only time it rained all weekend. We got soaked getting from the parking lot to the entry.
I don’t even want to write this, but sadness is just another part of life. Dusty was so happy to have us home. On Wednesday we took him to the vet for a re-check on his ears and on Thursday night at about 8:00 he left us. He wasn’t feeling well and he simply laid down in the dining room and died.
We donated his food and treats to Texas, for Hurricane Harvey Relief.
