I wanted to write and let you know that Freckles (#1424, adopted in September of 2012) has passed on. He had been under medical care for a heart problem for the last few years, and recently his kidneys and liver were showing signs of trouble. Recently he started having a lot of trouble just getting up and maintaining control of his balance, and today (Monday) he seemed just ready to go, and so he did. He died peacefully at home.

I’m so very grateful to Muttville for bringing him into my life, and for all of those who met him and loved him. He was such a sweet and gentle soul. Saying goodbye to him was so difficult… he was my best friend, my travel buddy, my light on dark days, my joy, and my constant companion. My heart is broken.

Thanks for all you do at Muttville. I am a very big advocate for senior pet adoption after this experience, and can’t imagine doing anything else. To have and love them is to live with the potential of loss of something so dear after only a short time – but it’s so worth it – every moment. When my heart has healed I’m sure I’ll bring another senior home one day.

There are pictures of Freckles on my instagram account, or I’d be glad to send you any photos if you’d like them.



Sadly, Freckles 1424 has passed away. But thanks to Muttville and its wonderful friends, he spent his final time in a loving home.
