Seamus is Gone to Heaven
Hi everybody. I haven't posted on this site for a long time but right now I really feel the need to share. Just a few hours ago I had to put my Best Buddy Seamus to sleep. He was a 9 year old Male Shepherd. This all started a couple of weeks ago when he started to not finish all his dinner. Usually this dog would eat everything he get his jaws on and ask for more so I knew something wasn't right. He started getting very lethargic and had to be coaxed to go for a walk when normally he would get super excited.
Over the last week or so he pretty much stopped eating. Not even his favorite treats. I took him to the Vet yesterday hoping that it was not anything serious, but inside I knew there was something major wrong with him. The Vet examined him and found a very large tumour in his Rectal area. After some discussion I decided it would be the best thing to put him to sleep. I had him put to sleep just a few hours ago. As all of you know who are going through this the pain is almost unbearable at times. This is the 3rd dog I have had to put to sleep over the last 20 years or so. It doesn't get any easier. But I Do recognize that these feelings will heal with time. Hope everybody else who is going through this realizes you are not alone.

Bless you. That was the last kind thing you could do for him.
