Gone but Never to be Forgotten

Our Little Guy lost his battle with lung cancer on
when the tumor started to block his airway.

We all miss him terribly and will never forget his sweet smile and the way he tilted his head when someone spoke to him.

A special thanks to all of Blogville for all your kind comments and prayers during Tucker's last days.  And also a big thank you to
for making those last days happy ones for Tucker.
This was the last photo taken of Tucker before the final trip to the vet to begin his journey to Rainbow Bridge and a life free of pain.
He held onto his new Wubba until the end.

Dearest Amber,

Our hearts are so full of sadnes for Tucker's passing. The video is so touching. When Mommy's Samantha died, she cried for months before she got me. She says Samantha taught her how to love with your whole heart and soul. Mommy says she knows Tucker and Samantha have alredy met up at the bridge and thaty nmake her happy.

Our thought and prayers are with you and your family.

God Bless....Mona, QWeenie & the Mommy

Tucker The Crestie said...

So very sorry to hear of Tucker's passing ... anytime something like this happens, I can't help but think of all the hideous people in the world who I'd rather see get cancer than a sweet boy like Tucker who had already been through so much, and who brought such joy to all who knew him. We're so very sorry and all of you are in our thoughts.

FiveSibesMom said...

Thank you for stopping by our blog today and your nice comment. I am so sorry for your loss of Tucker. I wanted to come over and pay my respects and offer my sympathies. May Tucker's memories keep him close always. It's just so hard to lose our beloved pets; wish their lives with us could be so much longer. May one day very soon a cure for cancer be discovered for all - canine and human.
