A co-worker lost his basset yesterday. Lenny had been rubbing his head on the ground, was doing some moaning and not eating very well. The vet suggested a dental so Dana agreed and dropped him off for the dental and nail trim.


He got a phone call that they couldn't get the tube down his throat and when they looked further they saw a huge tumor. It was so big they said it would be soon when Lenny would not be able to breathe and that they felt it was cancer that had gone into the jaw. They recommended the big sleep.


As they felt it wouldn't be more than a couple weeks, Dana gave Lenny the final gift of love.


He was second guessing himself today but I told him he saved Lenny from suffering. He feels terrible that he didn't get a chance to say goodbye but I told him that Lenny will always live in his heart.


Goodbye Lenny. Your Daddy will see you at the Bridge. :brokenheart

Godspeed Lenny. I always had Bassett hounds before GH's came to our home. They are just such happy dogs.

So sorry for their loss.

Please give your friend my condolences. As hard as a decision it is to make, I believe it is out of love for them that we take that step. Its never easy...but where he is now, there are only feel good times, no pain...no cancer.

How sad!

Knowing you did the right thing is some small comfort,

but the hole our furkids leave is something very special and precious.


We will all rejoice one day together at the bridge.
