Yesterday was a very sad day for me. I learned that one of my favorite "furry friends" passed over the rainbow bridge. Mongo was a beautiful Doberman Pincher with an incredible temperament and gentle nature. I have been walking him once a week for close to three years as well as caring for him when his folks went on vacation.
His dad called me yesterday and told me that Mongo had become ill last Friday and very quickly went downhill. They weren't quite sure of the diagnosis but it looked like lung cancer. His loving parents did everything they could possibly do to save him but the prognosis was bad and Mongo was suffering so they made the excruciating decision to let him go. He was only 5 years old.
I will miss him terribly.
