Almost 9 weeks after his splenectomy and diagnosis with hemangiosarcoma, Malik decided it was time and left us, on March 29. He clearly let us know and I am grateful for that. He was doing really well, low energy but still smiling, but his state worsened within 12 hours and we knew. He didn't appear to suffer at all, even got up and barked at the vet when he knocked at the door :-)
Everything went very peacefully and beautifully.
But he leaves a hole in our heart, and in the house. It's been very painful to live without him, his sweet sweet nature and noble spirit. But he was past 11, had a wonderful life, was loved by many aside than my hb and me, and leaves a lovely memory of his presence in this world.
May he be well, may he be happy, may his spirit soar.
We will always love you, Malik. http://s5.photobucket.com/user/Sindyeli/library/
