Ellis suffered what appeared to be a stroke while I was out with him at my office today at lunch. I rushed him to the emergency vet where they got him stabilized and ran several tests. My wife met me shortly afer where given all the circumstances we had to make the tough heart-wrenching decision to say goodbye to our wonderful brown man. Needless to say we are devastated.
Ellis was 15 and a half years old and obviously a very big part of our lives, bringing us endless smiles and joy each and every day. He will be dearly missed.
Ellis, we love you and will think of you always - please say hello to Yukon at the Rainbow Bridge. "The boys" now together again.
I will create a memorial page on my website once I can see through all the tears.
I know this is a difficult day for you. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.
Kolin, I am so, so sorry. This is just devastating. I'm so glad that he got to have one last trip with you--I remember those pictures of him, looking so happy. Run free, sweet boy.
Oh Kolin, I am so sorry. :'(
Run free, Ellis. Go and find Yukon.
Linda and Zoë, the Umlaut
So sorry for your loss :'( I hope that all the good memories will help you through the rough waters...
I'm so very sorry for your loss. He was a beautiful dog and I know how you must be feeling right now. I can tell that he had a wonderful life from all your posts and pictures.
Run Free Ellis. :'(
I'm so sorry for your loss. My heart aches for you.
I'm so sorry, I'm just here crying while reading your post. Ellis was my most favorite senior of all here and it he had such spirit. I loved seeing his pictures and just love the one you have shared here today.
Run free sweet Ellis

Kolin I'm so sorry. :'( :'( I come in here tonight, because I couldn't sleep. And this is the first thing I see... :'( No words can ever make it feel better for you and your wife. I don't know what to say other than Ellis was such a wonderful boy and I allways enjoyed seeing pics of him and hear stories about him.
Run free Ellis, run free sweet boy. :'( Go and play with Yukon now.
