Our dear Badger left us one week ago today. We are still in shock here and this is very hard to write.
He was healing so well, but about 2 weeks after his last operation (tumour on chest) we noticed a hardness in the flesh on his side. It seemed to be getting bigger so we booked a follow up with his vet. Between booking the appointment on Thursday, and getting to the clinic on Tuesday, there was no mistaking that the lump was growing. He had an ultrasound and a biopsy. The result showed another fast growing tumour.
It was already too big to operate on. We were out of options.
The vet appointment was on May 27th.
We took him home with pain relief, thinking we might have him for another couple of months.
The tumour started to gallop.
He died on June 9th.
We held him as he left us and told him how much we love him. It was so gentle and peaceful. We are heartbroken.
The photos in this video were taken the day before he died. He couldn’t walk very far but he still wanted to be a part of the action.
We buried him in the garden, next to Charlie and Luna, my sweet dogs who came before him.
Sleep well, Sweet Boy. We miss you.
