Luke 2001-2015

Luke and Shelby

Recommended Posts

On Monday at about 3 PM Luke lost his ugly battle with Nasal Cavity Cancer. He was strong though as on Thursday he was playing ball in the backyard and tug of war. Even with the lump on his right face getting bigger. Friday he was very lethargic, Saturday he could walk only a few feet but looked like he was drunk, Sunday I carried him outside to go potty as he lost the ability to walk. My wife who he was her wedding gift, was driving back from Florida and got home Monday afternoon at about 1:15 PM. We fed him using a syringe and gave him water that way to. He wanted to go out so my wife took him out. All of his functions started failing and he died in her arms in his backyard at 2:58 PM. He wasn't the same after Thursday but I did what I could to comfort him until the end.

Thank you all. He was well loved and spoiled. He made friends everywhere he went and you always looked forward to hanging out with him. Unfortunately I can not find his ABCA paperwork. I would love to get a copy but I don't know what his name was on the papers and I don't remember the breeder. I know he was from Kansas and born on 4-15-01. If anyone has or had a dog with that birthday in Kansas I would greatly appreciate some help. If I know the breeder I can get a replacement copy from ABCA but without it there are 142 males registered that were born that day. They said they can't narrow it down anymore without more info. I know there was a Champion on the paperwork, it was all the way on the right side about half way down or so. Any help would be great.

It is so hard to lose a beloved pet. He was well loved and while bittersweet, I sure that your wife was comforted to be with him at the end.


Run free at the Bridge, Luke..

Well we have managed to slowly heal from his loss though we will never forget him and the pain of losing our best friend will never be gone. We have continually reminisced about our favorite times with him and we aren't even through the first year we had him....LOL he made such a huge impression on everyone he ever met. Our other Shelby has made it through very well and finally came out of her shell and is way more personable. He is missed dearly but....It is finally time to get another. Friday we are getting our newest addition. Will update in another thread when we get him from the Breeder.


Thank you all for the sentiments. I know its been 8 months and I should have responded but I couldn't come here for the longest time.
