Unexpected Departure

On Monday, December 4th, we took Charlie to the vet because he was lethargic and not eating. The vet said his bladder was the size of a football and he needed immediate surgery. Charlie had cancer all around and inside his bladder. The vet said he didn't know how he was still going. Jesse made the (heartwrenching) decision to put him down. He never woke up from the surgery. Jesse buried him out behind the house, in a beautiful spot, and covered his grave with a huge stone from nearby.

We have had Charlie since right after we got married (6 years.) He was a special dog. We really miss him and it has been a hard couple of days.

So sorry to hear about Charlie, verra hard decision for Jesse to make but am so glad he thought about C in the end. Google the Rainbow Bridge for Jesse to read.
