Yogi started as a foster, he was 6 yrs old and been left to rot in a yard when the novelty of a new pup wore off for the kids (same old story). He was flea ridden, had bad joints from lying on concrete tied up i suspect as he also had pressure sores, was worm infested, ugly coat, blind in one eye and an round really sad fellow.
But he had the most gentle and loving nature and was so obediant, and would jump off a bridge if he thought it would make you happy.
Yes, we miss him a lot, he was PTS at 11 when the mr author itis got to much, and he went blind in the other eye.
At the time i read up on how blind dogs cope, and many do very well but he didnt, I suspected cancer towards the end as well as he used to yelp when he bumped something, or knocked himself, and along with the pain...it was time to let him go.
My cavalier stopped eating that night when he didnt come home. We had to hand /force feed for nearly 6 months..she grieved terribly for him, was very sad.
Thats what I hate about pets, they all go at some point,
