our grief is enormous. our precious hoover did not survive his surgery. they recovered a pom pom ball he had eaten from the doodlebug’s blanket and were closing him up when his heart went into an abnormal arrhythmia. they tried their hardest to bring him back, but were unsuccessful. our hearts are simply broken. happy and jiggy have been looking for him and the doodlebug has shed more tears than imaginable. i am inconsolable.
