You may remember Brock. We adopted him 4 years ago from you. He was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia, although the way he behaved you would have never known about his back legs. He loved running everywhere. Brock truly was a gift to us. He was a million dog, he never put a foot wrong ever. A valued member of our family, loved by everyone. We couldn't have been more proud of him.
I write this with sad news. A month ago Brock fractured his front leg. He was operated on and had it pinned with strict rest on the cards. Brock didn't like the rest but he was such an intelligent dog, he knew what he had to do. Another xray at the vets yesterday to see how it was healing. While under anesthetic the vet rang me and told me it wasn't good and they wanted to remove it. We knew that with his hip problems he would not have coped. The vet explained that he would never run again. It would have been a very selfish decision to have his front leg removed. We made the heartbreaking decision to have him put to sleep.
We are heartbroken but we had nothing but a full life with Brock.
Thankyou for letting Brock into our lives.
