Dear Carol -
Just wanted to let you know that my Ted passed away (euthanized) Thursday afternoon on the critical care ward of Canada West Veterinary Specialists in Vancouver. Over the past few days Ted was unable to walk even a few steps without collapsing. Xrays revealed the right side of his heart was causing pulmonary hypertension with a possible embolism in his lung. The neurologist there also speculated he had lesions on his brain. Any exertion caused Ted to either faint or seizure many times a day and the meds we tried were not working. His quality of life declined very rapidly. His estimated age was 17 years.
He was such a wonderful member of my family and I don't have the words to describe the devastation I feel at his loss. I am just grateful that circumstances put Ted and I together three years ago. He was such a blessing in my life and will always remain a part of my heart.
He wasn't a "Saint" for very long but I thought you would want to know.
rest in peace ted and our deepest condolences and thanks to his family for loving this little old soul so very well.
