sadly had to have my (mutley) put to sleep. he was only 8 yesterday    took him to the vet as i found a small lump on the roof of his mouth.
turned out to be the dreaded C word.
he had a scan and it was all round his skull and lower jaw. also found a heart murmur. never show any signs of pain and was running about this morning.
vet said it was growing very fast. so while he was sedated for the xray and scan. i had to make the choice....
iam lost for words now


so on the look out for a pup. must be a male and looking the same as him.
please let me know of any going

I am so sorry to hear that you have lost your best friend - please accept my sincerest condolences.

Run free little Muttley - run free as fast as you can.

May his memory be for a Blessing.

So very sorry to hear of this; it must be hurting very much just now. Sincerest condolences on your loss.

The only saving grace is that he was running around this morning, went to sleep at the vet's, and just never woke up. No pain, no misery, no growing discomfort and slow wasting or chemotherapy and surgery either.
Kindest thing you could do for him really to let him go so peacefully.
Best way to mind him as young and active.

My neighbour fosters (and usually ends up adopting) dogs of people who are suddenly unable to care for them. Her lastest pup came from a lady who developed 'the dreaded C' and went downhill very quickly.
No shame to the dog at all, but no one wanted a half grown alsation.
There are a lot of dogs out there like her I'm told. Might be worth investigating ?

Kind regards,
Mary

Aye it is never easy when you lose your mate , i have seen times when i was at my wits end with some of my companions, but ,  They were my mates , who through thick and thin would be there for me , never questioning my decisions , i just tried to think that while i had a dog to share my life i gave them as good a time as possibly could , all the best ,thinking of you .

Having lost my beloved Pereg on1 April 2015 when she was was not much more than 6 years old,  and then Baby Ziva on 1 May 2015 when we never did know what happened to her, my Tikki Tikva is my life.

I am terrified that something will happen to my Tikva.
