A sad Farewell to Jake


This is Jake, who was put to sleep yesterday because he had a cancerous tumour that doubled in size in a week, and it was cutting off his airway. I've known Jake for years, and you couldn't hope to meet a dog with a nicer nature.

Sadly it isn't possible to contact his owner who is a dear friend. She is in one of the Balkan countries and gets back next week. She will be shocked and devastated to hear of what happened to Jake. The Vet tried to keep the old boy going until she came back from her visit, but he couldn't succeed with such an aggressive cancer and that very final decision had to be made in my friend's absence.
