This is Peter. Two years ago he was rescued by a wonderful lady who gave him all kinds of hope. He was basically eeyore, hanging his head low. He came to our clinic in the beginning with heartworm disease and tapeworms. Pete made it through treatment, only to come back with chronic ear infections. He always makes us smile, especially when we hear his beagle voice across the clinic.
This old hound had even started to play at home. In November 2017, the owner found a bump on his mouth, and through surgery and sending in the mass, we learned it was cancer. Things went well for a while, until April, when a very large mass seemed to grow overnight. But he was still so happy! So we took the risk, and this lucky dog persevered. He had more time. Again. A few weeks later we were thrilled to see him for just another ear infection.
Today we say goodbye to “Pete the Beagle.” His cancer has spread to other parts of the body. Despite his willing and loving spirit, we can see in his face that he is tired, and its time to give him peace.
See you on the other side Peter!
