Apr 27th - Magnum left us today. I’m absolutely devastated and heart broken by unexpectedness of it. He was having spinal issues, but vet thought he might have had cancer in the spleen. Dogs are so stoic and don’t let you know they are in pain until they can’t take it anymore. He was my absolute rock for the last 12 years through so much change in my life. He never met a human he couldn’t charm, and was an amazing ambassador for the breed. He knew he was loved, but I wish I had more time to tell him again and again. Until we meet again “Big Stuff”, please wait for me at the rainbow bridge so we can cross together. I love you and miss you.
