A sad time

Well I apologize for not posting or being around recently but things are very busy. Hopefully they will settle down now that the horse showing season is over for me. I have had a very sad week with the sudden and unexpected loss of my ten year old Jack Russell.

I got Binson shortly arriving in the United States.

She was a wonderful dog to have and loved to cuddle next to me on the sofa. When the days got colder she could always be found under a blanket or soaking up a patch of sun.

Unfortunately on Monday she was diagnosed with a very large cancerous mass on her spleen. The vet was kind enough to call it a "ticking time bomb" and I knew we would only have hours or maybe days left with her. She was tired and uncomfortable so on Tuesday we decided to put her to sleep.


When my heart starts to feel a little better I will post a picture of my breeding group. The sheep are doing well with the lambs continuing to grow and mature and my new ram getting along well with his girls.

  1. I lost my heart dog Rosie too early to an inoperable tumor as well, so I know the pain whereof you speak; I'm so sorry.

  2. Shula, I'm so sorry to hear about Binson. It's never easy to lose them, but when it is unexpected I think it's even harder.
    Take care,
    Tammy

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Even when they are elderly and ailing, it is so hard to help them go on without us.

    Much worse when it is sudden and unexpected.

    I am so sorry.

  5. My hearts with you on this one... It is never easy to lose a companion as amazing as a dog. I know you will find comfort in that fact that you made the right choice. Allowing a friend to suffer is never right.. Even if the solution hurts you..

    My Condolences,
    Eric
