Default R.I.P. Sweet Boy....Again

We had to Wrigley put to sleep yesterday morning. The brain tumor finally got the best of him.

A little history: He was diagnosed with the brain tumor in August and we had surgery to remove his right eye because the tumor was pressing on the optic nerve. They checked his left eye, which was fine and gave us a prognosis of 4-9 months. Sadly, two weeks later he lost sight in that eye. He had been doing fairly well getting around until a few days ago and then we had a rough night on Saturday...I was up most of the night with him. We knew it was time to let him go. He has been such a good dog. We rescued him at 11 months and found out through routine bloodwork before neutering him that he had lepto. Then last year, he had to have part of his jaw removed. He is one tough boy.

It was so hard to say goodbye but he has been an amazing companion and we knew it was time. He will always be in our hearts.

This has been a tough year. We lost Rocco to a brain tumor in February.

I am so sorry to hear of his passing. Sending you lots of hugs and may he run free at the rainbow bridge.

So sorry for your loss. That never gets any easier and you never fully heal from something like that. Take comfort in the fact that you gave him a wonderful life and he in turn gave you some of the best years of yours.
