R.I.P Sweet Tyrone

Published on April 24, 2012 under Rainbow Bridge

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
