The naughtiest puppy turned into the most intelligent, loved, sweetest and handsome family member. Our beloved George loved to go on car rides, run, wrestle with his buddy Tex, treats, play ball, his back yard, swim in his kiddie pool and go to the dog park. He was a notorious queen size bed hog and claimed the territory every night. He wasn’t opposed to sharing it with every member of the family but had his designated spot…in the middle. Very intelligent and eager to please, he learned the name, color and shape of ALL his toys. We still agree that he was human and understood everything we said. He was a very verbal boy and talked to us all the time…our home is so quiet now, George.
He was resilient and bounced back over leg tumor removal (mast cell cancer), then a couple months later in the same leg, osteosarcoma (bone cancer) a very grim prognosis. To date the most difficult decision a fur baby mom had to make… a leg amputation despite poor prognosis. He literally ran out of the vet clinic on three legs to the car. He outlived most research and had an awesome summer and time with his family for 15 months before the inevitable cancer return.
In the end we treated his pain, still played and jumped in his swimming pool, slept a little more and got lots of massages and treats. We love you George. You gave us the best time, love and companionship. Although we miss you dearly, we know you are with us every step of the way and in our hearts forever.
“You are my sweet baby” Love, Stacey (mommy), Moody (daddy), Tex (your buddy )and Slick (the other bed hog)
