Angus Crosses Rainbow Bridge

Angus_May_1

To all our GRRSM friends:
I am very sad to inform you that Angus moved on to the Rainbow Bridge Tuesday afternoon at age 14 years, 8 months.

About three weeks ago he began to weaken and started drinking lots of water and having accidents in the house. The vet said that there was little he could do but prescribed an anti-inflammatory. Angus was better for about a week, and letting him out about ten times a day helped the accident problem. He was still weak and gave up long walks and trips to the farm. This week he really declined badly and seemed to develop a major abdominal problem, probably a tumor. He could not get up without help and began having trouble keeping any food down. His breathing was bad and he mostly stopped wagging his tail.

Tuesday he stopped eating altogether, and I knew that it was time. The vet agreed. The end was very peaceful and very sad. The other boys seem confused, but who knows what they really think. He never played with them, but they seemed to respect and appreciate him. We will all miss him; he was a wonderful companion for four years, and I am very happy to have provided his last home. Thank you for letting me do so.

Frank Thomson, Riley, Max and Jax

So sorry for the loss. Angus please play with my Ashley over the rainbow bridge. Maybe even strike up a pup romance. Run free pups and I look forward to meeting you when my time comes. May your memory be cherished in the hearts of those that love you and your spirit be commended to God who gave it.
