This is Brasco. He's our almost 12 yr old Cane Corso and the oldest member or our fury family. I got Brasco for my husband when he was just 8 Wks old and he has been our best friend since. Our hearts at now breaking because the time has come that we have to do what's hardest for us but best for him. Between his cancer and arthritis he's just in too much pain and the meds are no longer working for him. My husband just called me from work crying because he set the vet appointment for today. I don't even know how to console him :'(
I'm posting here because I needed to talk about it but I didn't want to put it on my Facebook. Sometimes it's easier when the audience doesn't really know you.
We left the vet a little while ago. That was the hardest thing I've had to witness right under holding my father in law's hand when he took his last breath. Ironically my FIL loved Brasco to pieces and while he was in hospice, non-verbal and in terrible pain from the lung cancer, we brought Brasco to see him and his eyes lot up while Brasco licked him over and over again. My husband is in pieces. I've only seen him like this at his father's funeral. I know Brasco died peacefully and I'm happy we got to say goodbye.
I can't thank you all enough for your kind words. I can't like every single comment or quote each one of you with my four boys running around, but I want to thank you all deeply from the bottom of my heart. The kind words and sentiments have been so heartwarming that I can't express my gratitude in words. You're all amazing!
