We found out today that our neighbors dog passed. He had a large mass that was rapidly growing and they made the decision to have the vet come to his home and let him go. Zeus was an 11 y/o wolf hybrid and Sunday he layed down and wouldn't get up again. I imagine they had the vet come to them since Zeus was so large and in pain.
He was such a wonderful dog. He came to visit our yard often and was just so sweet.
I came home tonight to look for a gift for them, and read about Tanner. Then I read this poem, and the tears won't stop.
