:( From Scratch & Sniff
I know we have not posted in many months, but today was a very traumatic day. We needed to have some drool slung our way.

Dudley went to the bridge. He was not quite four years old. He had been off his feed for the last few weeks. He was at his vet as recently as last week for his annual exam. I mentioned the lack of appetite, but it seemed to only be for crunchy food. He was battling an ear infection, so we attributed it to that. When his ears cleared up, but his appetite decreased, we knew the ears were not to blame. The vet performed an x-ray. We were hoping he'd find a sock, but it was a tumor half the size of his stomach. The film also indicated a spot on one lung. We did not want to prolong his agony.

So, here's to our little Dude!

This is a sad month on this forum. So sorry for your loss of your little basset, far too young... :cry:

My Rosie, who is also a basset, went to the bridge last week. It has been one week today. I am so sorry for your loss. As Sandy said, far too young. Rosie was 9. I know how tramatic it can be. I'm sure Rosie and Sadie, who also went to the bridge last week, will be there to meet your sweet Dudley!

Very sorry to hear of your loss. :(
Please accept our deepest condolances,
so young - so sad.

We'll light a candle for Dudley.

I am so sorry for the loss of Dudley. I can't imagine going in for an annual exam and finding that.
You are in my thoughts.
So sorry for your loss of Dudley. We, too, understand your pain and sadness having lost Bubba in December to Lymphoma Cancer.
