Tucker (our beloved pet for almost 8 years)

I just wanted to let you all know that last night my husband and I had to make one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make.
We laid Tucker to rest on 12/20/2010. He had been battling a second bout of a mystery ailment that wrecked havoc on his body. He was left with an extremely low red blood cell count and a white blood cell count so high the machine
could not read it. After spending several days at the vet last week he was sent home with meds on Saturday only to relapse. In his last state he would not have been able to handle much more. After some additional test results
last night and discussions with the ER vet we came to this extremely difficult decision.

Tucker was with our family for almost 8 years and went through a lot of changes with us. He was with us the first day in our first house and for our first child. He moved with us to our second house and saw our second child enter this world. We will miss him dearly, but he will always be a part of our lives and in our memories.

We appreciate all of your love and support during this difficult time for all of us. I have included a couple of pictures I found. He will be missed...

Oh Cazra, I'm so sorry. I am in tears right now. I'm sure that was a very hard decision. It's so hard losing a beloved pet.
