I really hate to post this after reading about the problems that Tom Baugues is having, that is why I chose a new post rather than adding to his. But I have to say to Tom that my heart goes out to you and I hope all turns out well.
My 11 year old Cairn Terrier, Angus McKee was put down today due to cancer in his front elbow or joint. It was discover a month ago, but spread so fast he couldn't stand or walk. It's almost like losing a child.
