Orry rescued me after I said goodbye to my 14 yr. old pup Chaos. He was fearful of many things (trashcans, balloons, motorcycles), but he loved the dog park & spent hours "squirrel hunting" at a Regional Park. He had the time of his life until he didn't!  Last July he was diagnosed with a blood platelet disease. He spent a week in the hospital, followed by weekly visits to his Vet; When his conditioned, we made daily visits to Specialists, but after 3 mos. he lost his battle & I lost my boy.

So sorry for your loss. He was much too young. May your loving memories of him bring you some comfort.

That's heartbreaking. I'm so sorry for your loss. He was much too young. May the happy memories of him overcome your sadness. Take care.

Thank you so very much Anne. I've lost (2) previous boys (both about 14). It's NEVER easy losing our kids, but losing Orry so young was devastating & really messed me up for a while. A new pup I named Wilson recently rescued me. He's 7 months now and keep me very busy. Thanks again!

Thanks again, Anne! Wilson is nearly 8 mos. & keeps me busy! At the end of this month it'll be a year since I lost Orry......Sometimes it seems like an eternity, others like it was just yesterday. I want to take Wilson to a place his late "brother" really loved, but its quite a distance now as I had to sell my home to pay for Orry's Vet bills, and Wilson still has car issues. We'll see. Thanks again!
