I’ve written far to many eulogies for our bassets in the last few years. This is by far one of the hardest ones to write. We lost our RockStar yesterday.


Star wasn’t feeling well on Sunday and didn't act like herself at the show on Saturday. Pam took her into the vet as early as possible on Monday morning. He took x-rays and did an ultrasound. The results he reported from of both didn't sound good. Around noon we received the call from him with the results of an exploratory surgery. Evidently, from what he told us, she had tumors everywhere. Our choice was not to even revive her from the surgery. She's gone.


While we know that most dog deaths are caused by cancer, this is just our second personal experience with it. Our first was a with Lucy, our pet store girl. This is the first experience with one so young and one that we bred.


Star was vibrant and happy to the very end. Until Sunday there were no signs of any illness. She and the rest of our pack enjoyed playing together. They often ran through the yard and house at top speed chasing one another. On Sunday night Pam and I wanted to keep an eye on Star so we had her sleep with us on our bed. She was so happy to be with us. Several times she cuddled up next to me and turned over so that I could rub her tummy as she wagged her tail in delight. Star was such a wonderful and integral part of our family. She was truly our RockStar.
