Dang. That was so quick! My heart and prayers go out to your and your family. It can be really hard to lose a member of the family especially when you had just been given some hope. He is now playing in a large field where everyone plays fetch and with large crystal bowls full of ice water sitting beside huge platters of treat style dog biscuits. He will be waiting for you and the other members of your family to join him when it is your turn to go to the next stage. Tail wagging, waiting patiently, just as he did whenever you left him at home for a short trip to the store and he would wait by the door for your return.
