so sad to report that our sweet luke has passed away

Carol  ·  Jul. 19, 2014

he was his normal self on thursday, playing with his toys but by friday afternoon he became quiet and not interested in eating. i called the vet because i was not sure if it was the cancer spreading or a side effect from the steriods. she thought it was probably the cancer but said to hold his pred. just in case.

luck passed quietly away sometime during the night, we were not expecting this. we think one of his internal mast cell tumors burst.

rest in peace will be greatly missed.




Rest in Peace, sweet Luke.

I am glad you were safe at home with all your family, Snuggled sleeping surrounded by love, in your favourite place, at peace with your tiny world, your Saints all around you.

Lenore Henry

So sorry to hear about Luke - thinking of you Carol and everyone at Saints.
