Default If anyone can spare a thought for...

If anyone can spare a thought for my good friend and kennel partner, Elissa (ZillyAPBT on Chaz) today, it would be greatly appreciated. I hadn't mentioned this to many people until now, but Trouble (at 14 1/2 years old) started going down hill pretty rapidly all of a sudden, and was diagnosed just a few weeks ago with advanced stomach cancer. While Trouble is "our" dog, she has lived with and been Elissa's companion and heart dog for half of (Elissa's) life. The decision was made to let Trouble go today, with all of the dignity a true APBT deserves.

They got to have one last photo shoot together a couple weekends ago...

My sympathies to Elissa and you on having to let go of Trouble...

My thoughts are with her. It's never easy to lose one.

I'm really sorry to hear that. I love seeing your dogs on Facebook. So majestic. Trouble seemed much loved. The pictures are beautiful.

Oh I'm so sorry

I'm so sorry for your friend.

That second picture is truly worth a thousand words, you can just see the love between them. It actually brought a few tears to my eyes.

The two and a half year old papillon. Crazy. Social butterfly. Clever.

I'm so so so sorry. It's always horrible to lose one - no matter how many you've had or for how long. He was gorgeous - really dignified and poised.
