    Default Now at Rest - Dearest Lance

    A couple of weeks ago I had to say good-bye to my dearest Lance. He was a beautiful, sweet, happy boy and lit up my heart for thirteen years. He did so well, too, up until the end - we were blindsided when he started gasping for breath one evening and we were told he had laryngeal paralysis. It had gotten to the point he couldn't survive outside the oxygen cage for long. I was devastated to lose him, but he had a long, happy life and he'll be with me forever.

    As an adorable three-month old pup:

    In our backyard:




    And this was taken a month or so before he passed...still handsome!


    Fare thee well, dear friend. I love you always!

    Lance was obviously a very special boy and you must have many happy memories of him - it's very hard to lose an oldie in particular, when they have been such a big part of your life for so many years.

    He was very handsome - thanking you for sharing you lovely photos with us.

    So sorry to hear about your handsome Lance. I've read your other posts and know that you are bringing another cavalier home. However, Lance will still be a part of you and I'm sure that you will always remember the good times as well as the bad times deep in your heart!

    Thanks so much for sharing Lance's photos. It is wonderful with all the health concerns we focus on with our Cavaliers to celebrate the life of one who made it to the teens. Congratulations to you and to Lance. I am sure he will be waiting for you at the Bridge and sharing stories of his life with you while he waits.
