R.I.P. Beau

My big Lab cross had to be unexpectedly euthanized early this morning; it seems that he had an aggressive tumour on his spleen which didn’t show up at his annual check up, only a few weeks ago, so it must have blown up very quickly, and caused a massive hemorrhage at some point yesterday.

He was fine yesterday morning; had a good breakfast and walk (came into the bedroom to supervise the putting on of shoes), he got into the garbage the day before and scattered it all over the place, so he was feeling pretty good until a few hours before he died, which is not a bad way to go.

He was coming up on 11, and I’ve had him for 6 years; he was a rescue. He was a challenge to begin with, with aggression problems with people and other dogs, but made a lot of progress, and was generally a really happy guy.
