One Year Ago Today

One year ago today we had to put out Calvin down.

We had him for just 378 days.

He was a rescue from Bakersfield that we believe was always an outside dog.

When we first got him from Second Chance Cocker, he seemed more comfortable outside.

He finally did get used to being an inside dog.

He got skin cancer that was removed last July.

At the time the vet gave him six to twelve months.

Last September 24th while feeding our three dogs, I saw blood on the floor.

Apparently, Calvin was bleeding from his penis.

We saw the vet late that day, when we got the diagnosis that he had bladder cancer.

The vet would order a drug that would reduce the cancer and give Calvin more time.

The bleeding never stopped on next day.

Calvin couldn't eat and he was losing all of his strength.

We made the awful decision to put him out of his misery.

He was so cute and would howl when he was happy.

He would put his head between your legs when you were going to the bathroom.

Calvin - hopefully you knew love for the 378 days we had you.

May you and Abby run free and easy over the Rainbow Bridge.

We miss you both everyday.

It's never easy to make that decision, but I think we all know it when it is right. Thank you for giving Calvin those 378 days of love.

Calvin was a beautiful boy and reminds me of my Bonnie girl who went to the Bridge on March 18, 2008. Our babies will always have a special place deep in our heart. :love

Oh my. Reading this brought tears to my eyes. So sorry that you lost him, but as another said, thank you for loving him for those 378 days and for taking care of him and being there for him until the end.
