a week ago today, Chance was diagnosed with cancer (carcinoma) of the lung. the wife and i cried and fussed over him for the whole week and have put him down yesterday morning. it was very peaceful and dignified, his final act was to push his face in between my hand and my thigh and nuzzle in a little, then he was gone. it was all just so fast, yet agonizingly slow. goodbye buddy, we miss you more than words can say.
