On December 7th, we had to say goodbye to our beloved Cyrus the Wonder Dog. He was twelve and a half years old and had bone cancer in his right leg. The vet had told me last May 2010 that Cyrus was in amazing shape for his age and would last many more years. Then in August, Cy started to limp and favour the front right leg. On September 3rd he was diagnosed with Bone Cancer, we had hoped it would be arthritis.
The last week of his life, Cyrus was panting heavily and was in pain. We could see it. Although he "looked" okay, he was panting and his beautiful blue eyes were black...because his pupils were so dialated. My husband and I had to end his suffering and it was a terrible day for the two of us. I like to think that Cyrus is free from the pain he was in and that he is off running, as he loved to do!!
Cy-Guy led a full life! He loved going outside to work with my husband on the shop and he loved to lay in the front yard, soaking up the sun. He was an explorer and ran miles through the woods around here with us. He loved to visit all of the neighbours and to share his love. He loves to lay his head in my lap and enjoyed car rides!! He was gentle, cuddly and the best
Cyrus was a one of a kind. He is missed terribly. We love you Wonder Dog. Run free and chase some chickens...
Thank you for stopping by.
**EDIT** Thank you to all of my stamping friends for their kind and comforting words.
