Very sorry to hear that RCW.I only met him once a couple months ago, but our kids in Philly had to say goodbye to their dog. They fostered him for a short while, and adopted him 2+ years ago.
He was diagnosed with a suspected Lymphoma last week. They were about to start chemotherapy, but his condition failed quickly. He was in a lot of pain. They did the right thing.
He was about 8 years old and a very good boy….the pictures are from the last couple weeks when he wasn’t feeling very well.

Thanks bear. Losing him has crushed the kids.Very sorry to hear that RCW.
Son just sold the last boxer pup he had from his litter.Thanks bear. Losing him has crushed the kids.
While they live in downtown Philly, the dog fit in very well.
They have no children, and I'm betting their next search will not be to foster a dog; it will be to adopt one.
Remember what I said about pet-ownership being a two-way street? There's benefits for the pet, and the owner as well. That benefit to the pet is immeasurable, just like it is for the owner.
A coworker lost their dog a couple months ago too. Just about Ollie's age, 10-11. He actually woke/alerted the family to late-night a house fire years ago. The house was a total loss, and no one was hurt, thanks to Rocky.
The Mr. is unable to work due to health issues. At 60, he's home alone all day now, and is greatly desiring another dog. They live in a very rural part of their town. The company will greatly improve his outlook, and give him a reason to keep moving. They're dog people like many of us.
We also did get on a list for another Boxer puppy. Looks like a European Boxer could be in the cards for us this summer. We're preferring another male, and maybe a brindle this time. Time will tell.....
