Nelson <3
« on: July 22, 2016, 17:32:16 PM »

I had the very sad news yesterday that this gorgeous old boy, one of my most loved ex-fosters has very sadly passed away this week, after suffering several doggy strokes over a very short period of time :'( 

He was in foster with me back in 2014 after being giving up by his heartbroken elderly owners & he was almost entirely blind at around 9 years of age (not that it slowed him down at all - I've never known a more confident dog!). His owners found out about Four Paws through my then workplace and after weeks of long, heartwrenching conversations with the poor man who was going through hell, Matt & myself picked Nelson up - it was the most heartbreaking experience & I was in tears when we left.

Nelson ended up staying with us for four months before finding the most perfect forever home  just in time for Christmas with his wonderful new owner Alex. She could not have given the feisty (& flatulent!  :-X ) old boy a better home, it was a match made in heaven. I know she is devastated to have lost him so suddenly after such a short time with him </3

Run free at the Rainbow Bridge Nelson, young and fit again <3 xxxx
