Kevin just told me that Champ, his BIL's and sister's dog, passed away this past weekend. He was a beautiful Brittany Spaniel. His younger "brother," Dawber, was with him when he passed.
The last time I saw him I spent a lot of time with him. It was clear he wouldn't be around much longer - he was getting up in years. Bless his sweet heart, he had a very hard time retrieving, but still so wanted to do it. I threw the ball short distances and tried to make him feel successful. It still lit up his eyes.
I'm really upset. :'( :'(

I'm so sorry, Connie.
I believe that he is able to run for miles now, never tiring, and retrieve all the balls he wants!
How kind you were to him on your last visit.......
Oh! I'm so sorry.........Run free, sweet Champ! :'(
So sorry. Run free Champ
Run free sweet Champ. :'(
I'm so sorry. (((Hugs))) Godspeed Champ.

I'm so sorry.
Run free Champ! Now you can retrieve all the balls you want without any pain!

So sorry to hear this, but at least he's free of pain.
Connie, I hope you don't mind if I say this, and if it intruded on your post, I apologize.
Our neighbors have a Brittany. He's been coming around since we've had Tucker. He's not trained, doesn't know how to play or retrieve, not anything. He was a wild dog basically. Over time, he plays with Tucker, and now comes to the door daily, to see me as much as Tucker. I've taught him to sit, and he's very calm now. I've grown so attached to him...if he were a stray, I'd just keep him. He's such a sweet, mild boy.
