Default Hutch went to the rainbow bridge today

Our little rescue mis marked Dutch made his last vet trip today. He came to us 12 years ago in March, so he was close to 13. The last couple of weeks he got a tumor on his front leg and couldn't hardly use his back legs either. He still loved his veggies and treats and was eating but he'd lost a noticeable amount of weight. I've been helping him get around for the last couple of weeks as I live in a permanent state of denial where my companion animals are concerned, but we both agreed it was time. I still remember how he'd run around the room doing binkies and spins almost too fast to follow--such a happy little man and he will always be that in my memories. We miss you so much my little man.

Sometimes I feel like I'm running a fertilizer factory.

So sorry to hear that. It's always so hard to say goodbye, but at least it sounds like he had a very long and enviable life...

I'm so sorry for your loss. It sounds like you did your very best for him and I'm sure he knew how much he was loved.
