Earlier this month, we received this tribute to Bev. Bev was already an older girl who had recently had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor when she was adopted in 2013. It takes a very special person to adopt a senior dog; we are so grateful to Bev's family to have given her such a wonderful home in which to spend her golden years.
Hi, It is with great sadness that I tell you that my beloved Bev collapsed and died Monday morning on our dog walk. Her health had been declining due to degenerative myelopathy, Horner' syndrome, and worsening Cushing' disease. She had a large mass on her spleen that ruptured suddenly. We didn't even know she also had hemangiosarcoma. Yet she was a happy girl! She never, never complained about anything! These photos were all taken the last couple of weeks; you can see how happy she was! And since they finally put our new sidewalks on our block, I etched out a small memorial to Bev.
