POTP for Bilbo and his Pack

We received an email from Mama Beth that we have copied in part below: 

Bilbo has taken a turn for the worse. His he is drinking full bowls of water and having problems holding his bladder. We talked to the vet yesterday and she confirmed our thoughts that his kidneys are failing. (He has had kidney problems for the past year or so). Unless he tells us before, we have an appointment with his vet to help him cross the Bridge on Wednesday evening at 6pm PST.

We wanted a doctor we knew to help and we are glad we have a couple of days to spoil him with pumpkin crunchies and as many snuggles as he will let us give him.
Mama Beth requests some POTP for Bilbo, Ed and I(and the Boyz) on the POTP. 
Going from a pack of four to a pack of two in a couple of months is going to be rough. 
Mama Beth wrote, It’s an end of an era saying goodbye to Dory and Bilbo, our first two babies, so close together…

Dory and Bilbo were two of our very first blogging friends way back in 2009!!

Loving family
Boy did he love pumpkin crunchies
