After battling serveral months against an unknown illness and losing over 45 pounds, we had to put Moose to sleep tonight. Moose was eight years old and he has been a part of our family since he was a puppy. Over the last month, he looked nothing like the picture above. For a dog who was used to having his presence known, he spent many a day and night just sitting around. That was not the Moose we knew. Tonight, the house is a lot quieter. At least on this snowy and cold April night, we know that Moose has finally found relief from pain, peace and warmth. We will miss him dearly.
