Captain's Log Stardate -315090.15
Our oldest dog, Luigi, died this afternoon. Out of nowhere, he experienced seizures that lasted hours. It started at 1PM. He didn't ate his lunch and went directly under the car. When I called his name, he was like being electrocuted. His body movements show all symptoms of an epileptic attack and foam was already forming around his mouth.
I called 3 vets but non of them answered the phone. My uncle told me that let the seizure finish because there's nothing I could do to stop it. He said that he'll accompany me next-day to their vet at West Ave.
When his condition stabilized, I carried Luigi on an open are where he wouldn't hurt himself when a seizure attacks. Just as when he was breathing normally, a seizure again attacks around 6PM. His body became stiff, threw up lots of water, urinated and finally stopped breathing.
He'll be buried tomorrow next to his sister Casper, who also died of unknown cause.
Thanks for the 9 years of friendship Luigi. I'll miss you.
