Until We're Together Again.....RIP



A special thank you for all the support during this sad time for our family, both human and canine.  Rusty had a very special place in our pack and will be missed.

We know he's back with his brother, Tucker, now and that helps us accept the loss, as they were very close.

Rusty handled the surgery to remove the two-pound tumor, his spleen, and six inches of his intestines and started to recover very well.  But then his frail little body just couldn't handle the post-op infection that took over yesterday.

Rusty slipped away peacefully in his sleep this morning at the clinic. 
******************************
Please excuse us for a week or so while we re-group and figure out how to move on without our little man on board.

We Will Be Back Soon.

Lots of Love!
