Just wanted to let you all know that we lost Bart last night (9/23/15). He collapsed on his walk yesterday afternoon and VHUP diagnosed an abdominal bleed, most likely from a tumor of some sort. With all his other health issues, we just could not see putting him through surgery, even if that were an option, so we let him go.
This is a picture of Bart, in one of the rare moments when he’s not moving so fast he’s a blur. He hadn't been to the dog park for a while because of his arthritis, but in his prime he was the self-appointed gate-greeter to other dogs, but also a frequent nursing home visitor. I’ve never known a nicer dog.
