The Eventually Cottage family suffered a huge loss last evening.
Our buddy and the greatest dog that ever lived passed away.
Brady was a huge part of our family for 7 years, ever since Prince Charming brought him home from the local animal shelter. The Prince went to the shelter that day just to walk some of the dogs, and a great big yellow lab walked right up to him with a Giants football leash in his mouth. That sealed the deal for the Prince, there was no way that this gental giant named Brady by the people at the shelter was NOT coming home with him on that day!
This big yellow guy fit right in with the family and soon became a friend to everyone that met him.
For the last few weeks, the big guy has been having a lot of trouble getting around. A couple of days ago, we noticed that his belly seemed to be distended and he had lost his appetite. The Prince and I took him to see the vet yesterday afternoon. The news was grim. The vet felt that Brady most likely had cancer, and that he was losing blood, probably a tumor that had ruptured in his belly, filling his belly with blood. At the age of 14, the vet did not feel that our big guy would be able to survive the emergency surgery that would have to be done. It was with a very heavy heart that the Prince and I decided that it wouldn't be fair to put our buddy through anything more and would have to say goodbye.
Goodbye, Brady... you were the best buddy ever... always the happiest one to see me come home from work... always by my side helping me in the garden... always at my feet as I cook in the kitchen. You will forever be missed, buddy!!!!
