2 years ago yesterday, we said good bye to our lovely lab Jet. He was only 9 months old but because of one thing and another there was very little that could be done - had no hips or elbows and was full of arthritis. The pictures I put on his website were from the morning of the 17th August 2007 in our back garden. He collapsed twice getting down to the grass and we had to carry him back up to the house. Looking back, I have to wonder about how tall he was and if the food he was getting had something to do with bringing everything on so quickly, even at 9 months old, he was about 6 inches taller than Shadow is now. It was one of the sadest days we ever had, no one wants to let a family member go let alone a puppy. His full story is on the link at the bottom of my sig.
