It is hard to accept even now, months later that my What is gone. Several people have already given us condolences and thank you to all of you who understand the loss we bear. I did not respond at the time, it was too hard. I can finally talk about it and since the Annual came out with his ad in it, I figured now was a good time to thank everyone for their kind words about What. A nerfball sized tumor had metastasized all through his abdomen and intestines.
We spent almost every minute together. Racing, Obedience class, hunting in the winter, with me at work every day and sleeping by my side at night. A couple days before he died he had a perfect night at obedience class, 2 weeks before he had raced on the oval and months before he hunted rabbits. He never even told us he didn't feel good. My brave, brave boy. He loved me unceasingly. He had the best life I could give him, he lived a whole life in just 6 very short years. I always thought there would be more time. I can't even put into words how I loved this dog.
