Bowzer - update from his mom.
(Cedar Rapids, IA, USA)
What we have feared happened last night. After 5 days of not eating and the weekend at the emergency vet we had to put Bowzer down. He had an enlarged liver - unsure the cause, could be cancer, could be a bacteria, could be a virus. Have you ever heard of such a thing?
He was my best friend and the heart of our family. Bowzer gave so much love we couldn't let him suffer a minute longer. We are blessed to have loved him for 11 years and he holds a huge part of our hearts.
For all you Basset owners: CHERISH YOUR DAYS. Love your hound with all you have. Give them the spot they want on the couch or in bed. That little ice cream left in the bowl is for them - that's why it doesn't get into your spoon. Live as they do - with nothing but love to give!
