Spencer Lord Cowell 2007-2010

After consultation with our vet and the orthopaedic surgeon, it was discovered that our little boy Spencer had an inoperable spinal fracture with dislocation at L4/L5. His chances of walking again and having any quality of life, even after surgery, were slight. The only thing keeping him comfortable was the Morphine infusion, so we took the advice of Spencer's doctors, and let him go...

Requiescat In Pace

"The choice was his, and his completely,
He could have anything he desired.
He could burn with the splendour of the brightest star,
or else he could choose time...
And how he lived, how he shone,But how soon the light was gone."

  2. I`m so sorry for you. I just discovered your site, because of the little picture of your pretty beagle.
    I`ve got one too and I can`t imagine the day he will leave our family.
    Best wishes to you from the south of Germany, Beate

  10. Thank you to everyone who has written to express their sympathy at this time.

    Due to a blogger error, most of your comments have vanished into the ether over the last 24 hours, but we have had a chance to read them and appreciate all your support.

    Thank you, David and Peter.

  11. Really sorry for you! How awful to end like that. Animals give so much, but you will also have been such a wonderful home for him-that is about the best that can be said.
    Lost two cats last year and the only comfort is that you have done your best.
    Best Wishes
    Robert
