In the beginning of the year, we took our beloved 14 year old lab mix to the vet for his annual check-up and shots. He left with a clean bill of health. It was not to much later that he was back because his legs gave out on him one day and he was stumbling. We came home with the sad diagnosis of lymphatic cancer. We opted to do the most for him to keep him happy and comfortable and not make his small amount of time here on earth miserable. With the vet in agreement we did all we could and kept him quite happy and lasting longer than they thought.
On July 14 we said goodbye to a loving and faithful friend. He was a remarkable dog that will never be replaced. Our home has been empty without him. I never realized how much he was part of our family until he was gone.
