Have a safe journey Churchill

We just found out that Churchill's cancer has done too much damage and it was still growing. The board decided that the humane thing to do was let Churchill finally have peace.

Mommy and I are crying so it is hard to type a long post. We are happy that he found love, belly rubs, loving faces to kiss and relief from pain for those few weeks in foster care.

You will always be in our thoughts Churchill.


Please say goodbye to Churchill: http://fbrnetworknews.blogspot.com/2007/07/rest-in-peace.html#links

That was very sad but it sounds like he was in the hands of angels. What they did for him was wonderful.

Be well,

Balboa, this is too sad. But at least he had few weeks of good care and lovely people around him.

Poor Churchill, but he is now free from pain and had people to love him for his last few weeks.

Oh this is so sad. I read his story and things seemed to be looking up for him. I hope he enjoyed his last days with people who cared about him and, finally, wanted to make him feel better.

Godspeed Churchill. He was very loved in the last days of his life and will not suffer anymore. Sometimes you can't always win the fight.

It still hurts though.

I'm so sorry about Churchill. I'm glad he was able to move on to his next journey surrounded with love.

Tadpole said...

*sniff* Give you mom lots of kisses, Balboa.

The Brat Pack said...

What sad, sad news. The fact that people let his condition get to this is just disgusting and unbelievable.

We know he's pain free and running happily through the grass now. RIP

Incredibly sad and heartwrenching--but to know that he had the last few weeks of his life be the best--is a nice thought.

I gave you a rockin guy blogger award go to my blog to check it out.

Like so many others, we were so touched by Chuchills story, and have shed many tears over his passing. Rest in peace buddy, and we'll see you at the bridge.

Stanley said...

Balboa,

My girl and I kept checking the site to check on Churchill's progress. It really did look like things might turn around for him. I'm bummed that he was too sick to be treated, but he sure was loved on his way to the bridge! Thanks for introducing all of us to him.

Goob love,
Stanley
