Monty has left us today

My dog Monty had to leave us today.  After a few weeks of treatment for degenerative disc disease.  This is where there is calcification and fluid build up around the discs in his spine.  Today he lost complete movement and control on both of his back legs.  Treatments have been unsuccessful and the next option was full back surgery on the three locations along his spine. The chances of this being successful were low and with his poor response to the general aesthetic when the x-ray was done we decided it was better to let him go quietly.

So today ends over 10 years of our time together.

Monty as he just a year ago.

As a puppy with a full coat, easy to see why we fell in love with him.
