The collar is empty.
The leash is limp.
The crate is unoccupied.
And my heart is broken.
Wes had a massive cancerous friggin tumor on his spleen. Bleeding like mad. We were out of options.
I sent him along to my Dad. Told him to have Dad take care of him now and forevermore.
Goodbye, Wes. You were an amazing dog. You opened doors to me that I would have never opened by myself, and there wasn't a thing I ever asked you to do that you didn't do. I knew you weren't thrilled in the obed/rally rings, but you did it anyway and we beamed with pride when you succeeded. Your therapy work brought you in touch with many, many kids, and they all loved to ruff your neckfur and flip those silly ears of yours.
You will be sorely, sorely missed, my friend.

Dan I am so so very sorry. I will be praying for you and your family.
Oh DAn, No! I'm so sorry for you all. My thoughts are with you and your family. Run free, Wes.
Oh Dan, I am so damned sorry I can't contain it and so its spilling from my eyes.
Run free Wes.
