Just a short note to pass on the sad news that our darling Mungo (who we got as a rescue through Karlin in August 2007) passed away at home last night. All three of us were with him as he slipped away peacefully.
This has come as a terrible shock to us, as he had been in fantastic form, and showed no signs that the end was near. We were renewing his meds on Saturday, when the vet recommended that we have him xray-ed to monitor progress. His xray was on Monday and, as expected, his heart was very enlarged. A change in meds followed, in an attempt to help his condition. Sadly, it didn't work.
Our comfort comes from the fact that we had 2 wonderful years with Mungo, and he was happy, active and relatively healthy to the very end. Even yesterday at bedtime, we were saying how well and happy he looked. One hour later he yelped once (to call us I think) and passed away in Hugo's bedroom. We were able to hug and pet him as he left us.
All I can do now, through tears, is to thank Karlin for letting us have 2 fantastic years with our lovely Mungo.
Nick, Emer and Hugo.
