dawn lost her much loved foster mumford yesterday.

when she took him home almost 2 years ago, i said, he would be dead in a few weeks. mumford had a horrible heart..and yet he had a wonderful heart. it was broken in how it was supposed to work but it was a miracle in how it did work. the last year has been a roller coaster ride for dawn and her lion headed friend...a couple of trips to emergency in the middle of the night, quite a few vet visits with changing the doses on his cardiac meds. dawn told me that mumford was the hit of the dog park...everyone there was totally in love with him. it was partly because he had the absolutely cutest little face, but mostly because a tibetan monk dwelled within him.
mumford was a one of a kind and dawn completely adored him. rest in peace little man, you lived a good life, and your mom is never going to forget you.

thank you dawn for loving another of our old wrecked palliative guys...let me know when you are ready to welcome the next...i am thinking that theya would love you.



Hugs to you Dawn...Mumford was very special and you gave him the greatest sorry for your loss.

Theya is a true sweetie...if you do take must bring her back to visit too..i luv her

so sorry Dawn, my old guy lasted much longer than he was
supposed to, and though you prepare for it, your heart still
breaks. you were lucky to have each other for the time you
had. didn't really know him, but he was pretty damn cute

Yes, he was a cutey......hugs to you Dawn....thanks for opening up your heart.....I know Mumford added so much to your home!


Really sorry Dawn -I remember Mumford (and I love the name). You never know how much time you have together, and he was a lucky boy to have a couple of years with you.


Dawn, thank you for what you do, Mumford was so lucky to have found you....


So sorry, Dawn. Mumford was a real sweetheart. He was so lucky to have a home with you, and be so well loved. Hugs.
