Scruffy was the first dog in my life that was mine. We were very close. He was a West Highland White Terrier. He was 14 years old. Late last fall, he fell down the stairs a few times and really started to lose his hearing. He also had his parathyroid gland had quit. He had to take calcium 3 times a day.He started pacing all the time. Then I noticed he was losing weight. He lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks. The vet said he likely had some form of cancer. I have been through chemo myself and was not going to put my buddy through that. We opted for euthanasia on Feb 22nd.
I miss him more every day. He was such a sweet pea. I had him cremated and when the time comes, his ashes will be mixed with mine.
