RIP Regis Morris, July 1 2002 - May 18 2009

When we discovered Regis had lymphoma, we felt like we might get lucky and have him at least a year. That was three months ago, and today we said goodbye.

It's been a long mourning process, knowing there is no cure for canine lymphoma. We were able, through chemo, to get him almost back to normal during much of his sickness... so we've been fairly lucky. But we knew the day would come when he could no longer endure the battle.

Today was that day. So long my boy, you have been with me through thick and thin. Love you, pal. You were the greatest pup any guy could ever want.

So sorry, Dave and family. I'll make sure Conan, Maggie, Winnie, Lucy and Boy Dog keep their eyes open for him and show him around The Place.

I'm sorry to read about this, Dave. My little dog broke her back a couple years ago, and some days she doesn't do so well, and I dread the day I have to say goodbye to my best friend.

Words cannot express my deepest sympathies. I had to put my German Shepard to sleep. It was hard after 12 years of having his unconditional love and companionship. My heart goes out to you.
