Goodbye Old Friend (Brinkley 1/7/02-10/24/11)

Uploaded: October 25, 2011


This photo is from Sunday and it's one of the last photos of Brinkley and his Mama. It's also one of the last photos of him at the cabin, his favorite place in the world. Yesterday, after we had came home, he took a turn for the worst. He had been failing some time from a list of issues. When we took him to the vet we were informed that his body was not producing enough red blood cells. We made the hard decision to put him down. We will miss you Big Guy!

So very sorry for your loss. Had to do the same thing last month and know how painful it can be. #1418136
