As many of the members here already know, our Fasb passed away on December 1st. He was diagnosed with kidney disease in early June, but did very well through September. In early November, he started refusing food and ate mostly beef and chicken for the last month of his life. Right before Thanksgiving, he became creaky and lethargic. He passed away less than a week later. We were prepared for the end and know it's for the best, but it's still been very hard on us. Much more difficult than we expected. We're feel his suffering was minimal, so we're grateful for that. He was a wonderful dog. We couldn't have wished for a more loving, interactive companion. He gave us happy memories virtually every day of his life. He had a long and happy life. He was born in 2001 and would have turned 14 at the end of December. Rest peacefully, sweet boy. We will never forget you.
