Today we are grieving. Early this morning, Hannibal’s body shut down. Our hearts are broken. We wanted to show you Hannibal in a loving home, curled up on a sofa, running happily on a beach, growing old in comfort. None of this will happen now. We were trying to discover why his immune system was refusing to produce platelets and keeping him alive with blood transfusions. Our only consolation is our knowledge that he was happy, that our care had made him happy… if only for a short time.
Rest in peace, Hannibal. You were dearly loved.
