It’s time to say goodbye to our 13 year old Jack Russel George. He was diagnosed with a stomach tumour about 3 months ago. He had been doing quite well but has taken a big turn for the worst the last few days. After a sleepless night last night myself and Roxanna agreed it was time to let him go and say goodbye. I phoned the vet this morning and he is booked in to be put to sleep this evening. I am taking him myself as Roxanna can’t bare to be there. I know I’m going to be in bits. We’ve had him since he was 7 weeks old and he will be sorely missed. Rest in peace little fella.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. 

He has gone now 😢😢

Because of Covid restrictionists I had to stay in the car. The vets took him away and put a line in him then brought him back out to the car where I held him in my arms in the back of my car while they anaesthetised him. He didn’t put up any fight and passed quietly and quickly away.

I know we done the right thing for him but it was still hard to do. 

This was the little fella just 6 weeks ago.

He will be very much missed but as you said Buster we have some great memories.

But I found....there is a antidote which helps ease the pain a little bit,

Sorry to hear this Andy. I met your dogs a couple of times. I really liked them. I later got a Jack Russell of my own. My lab is 13 years old now. I've had her from about 6 weeks old. That's the problem with having dogs and cats. They don't live long enough and they break your heart when they're gone.

You will be missed George.
