We lost our dear friend on Tuesday. He was our dog of 12 years. He was a good dog and very healthy until the end. He had developed a tumor on his spine and became a paraplygic almost instantly. We did some research and had almost made the decision to try to deal with him as a paraplygic animal when the decision was taken out of our hands. The paralysis moved to his upper torso and he was scared and in pain. We had no choice but to let him go. We will miss him.
