“His heart murmur is at a five, and the doctor believes his heart has an obstruction,” Rosario explained on Facebook. “He’s also on the cusp of going into heart failure. Basically, his heart is like Swiss cheese and isn’t pumping blood where it’s supposed to go.”
But Rosario was determined to give Lemon the best possible life in the short time he had. “My time with Lemon is going to be short but the sweetest,” she continued. “When he starts showing signs that he’s not happy or that he’s in pain is when I will say goodbye.”
But before that day came, Rosario decided to draw up a bucket list for Lemon. Included on the list were items such as scaling a tree and using his paws to create art. Together, the pair fit a lot of experiences into their nearly three months together.
