R.I.P Sweet Tyrone

24 Apr

This past week, we lost our “tripod dog” Tyrone.

Tyrone came into rescue last November from a shelter, and was getting ready to be placed for adoption when we discovered he had bone cancer in his right hind knee.   To alleviate the pain in his leg, it was amputated in January but we knew that eventually the cancer would catch up with him.   About 10 days ago his condition started to deteriorate and although he was not experiencing any pain, it was obvious that his days were numbered.   We kept him as comfortable as possible, and in the end Tyrone decided that it would be best to leave this earth on his own terms.   He found his favorite spot on the back lawn of his foster home – where he used to love to bask in the sun – and peacefully passed in his foster dad’s arms.

Tyrone was a gentle “old soul” with a heart of gold, who touched everyone who met him.  We will miss our big teddy bear terribly,  but will always hold him in our hearts.

Rest In Peace Tyrone

"Two years ago our family attended the Bulldog Beauty Pageant in Long Beach where we met the SCBR team and learned about this great breed. We had thought about getting a bulldog for a long time. A year ago we finally submitted an application and met with SCBR volunteer Vicki. Within weeks she had found the perfect dog for us! When we met Butters it was love at first sight. We have never had a dog before and couldn't have made it through the first year of bulldog ownership without the help of SCBR and Vicki who always answered my emails and phone calls about dry noses, cleaning folds and tail pockets, putting in eye drops and more! Our newest family member never leaves our side and brings joy every day. We can't say enough about the great work SCBR does and are so thankful for the volunteers.."
