December sucks for us. Our dog passed.

It seems we lose and have lost too many in December. Eddie, who I rescued in 2007, has had seizures since he was 4 and COPD for the last two years. Always a happy little guy. He started panting a bit very late on Christmas day and by 1230pm the next afternoon, he had passed while my wife Samantha was holding him in the recliner. 

RIP, his tiny highness, the Duke of Dundee, Eddie. He is in the middle. That was Dec 10, 2007, Muttley on the left and Cody on the right. Muttley passed on dec 28 about 6 years ago and Cody just after Thanksgiving a few years later.

    It's not easy but be grateful for the good times.
    Great picture.
    That's all I got.

    Eddie was a rescue dog in 2007... You gave him a life that he otherwise probably wouldn't have had. In return he brought years of joy and happiness to you and yours.
    May you find it in your heart to rescue again 😇

    RIP Eddie -- you earned it.

    Very sorry for your loss.  They give so freely of their love it’s impossible not to miss them terribly when they are gone.

    This is not a new thing for me. I've been raising and occasionally breeding dogs for close to 50 years. This one was SO quick. It was like someone hit Eddie's off switch. I am suspecting massive heart attack. 

    There will be healing and time for our hearts to mend. Then the void will be filled with the next pup. Thanks all.

    Wife and I talk about getting another dog. We want the same English and American bulldog mix we had before. Haven't been able to find one so......
