Mickey, our beutiful Westie lad
« on: April 21, 2017, 14:11:09 PM »
Mickey came to us on January 30th 2008.
He was a character and a half. Fitted straight in with our other dogs. Tried to chase our cat (friendly!), 'til she showed him who was boss !!
Always full of fun and tricks. Everyone who met him fell in love.
Sadly took ill November 2016, and was eventually diagnosed with Lymphoma.
He fought it like mad, even the vets were amazed at how well he was doing.
Sadly we lost one of our other dogs to kidney failure in February, and it was as if he just gave up.
Had to make the heart rending decision to have him put to sleep 10 dqays after Georgie, on February 18th.
They are both sadly missed, especially by Rosie who was his best friend.
Sleep well Mickey, run free as the wind. You will never be forgotten

It's heartbreaking isn't it? You'll never replace the ones you've lost but I hope you and Rosie find a new friend soon who can give you both comfort.

So very very sorry. He does sound a lovely lad though and he obviously had a wonderful life with you. Thinking of you.
