It with sadness that I write to tell you that our beloved Hogan passed away peacefully this week after a short battle with cancer.
We adopted Hogan as an 8 year old nearly five years ago. He was the first dog that my wife and I have owned, despite growing up with dogs, and we were delighted to take on an older dog who perhaps wouldn't be everyone's first choice of dog but who fitted perfectly with our life stage.
I cannot begin to tell you how much joy Hogan has brought us and you matched him with our circumstance perfectly. He was such a loving dog and just wanted to be around people. We hope that we gave him the happiness that he certainly brought us and as an overweight dog on arrival, we were pleased to get him walking lots and eating well, which meant a healthy existence until his health troubles started this year.
It is a hard time for us as we have lost the very best of companions and a member of the family, but in time we will look back with fond memories and the brilliant decision we made to contact you all those years ago.
Thank you for the work that you do and thank you for introducing Hogan into our lives - we will forever treasure him.
