The day has been coming for a while now, over the last few months Clyde has had some health issues. It all started with a lump in his neck, which after being operated on and no real problem found just never got better. Today Joe took him for an ultrasound and an x-ray, we were hoping that the lump had some kind of foreign body in there but unfortunately no such thing was found. It turned out to be a possible tumour. He has been miserable and not himself for a month now and no treatment was helping him get better.
Being a border collie he just never stopped, playing, running, fetching a ball or just being right by your side, he drove us nuts sometimes but he was an intelligent and loyal dog. So when he stopped being those things we knew a decision had to be made. As hard as it is to say good bye I won't let any animal suffer. Any possible treatment was just so expensive and out of our reach, as with any treatment there's no guarantee it would be successful and we couldn't have put him through all that anyway.
So it is with a heavy heart we say goodbye to our beautiful boy Clyde who was just ten days away from his tenth birthday. RIP Clydie Wydie xxx
Someone's going to miss him :-(
My favourite photo of the three of them
Clyde, Max & Bonnie
If there is a place we go to when we die then I would like to think that Bonnie and Clyde are running free together, Clyde eternally looking for a stick and Bonnie barking her head off at him.
Clyde born 1st November 2004 - died 21st October 2014
