Raggs, or better known as Raggy was rescued from the AC Shelter about 7 years ago. He was being fostered by a volunteer and she ended up adopting him. He had a wonderful, loving life and we will never forget our "traveling man". You were a one of a kind little man!


Well, I couldn’t watch my Raggy struggle to get up anymore. He was eating but peeing and pooping right where he was laying. I cleaned him up this morning – gave him some pieces of steak. At work it was just bothering me so much I called and talked with Dr, Johnson – I had him there on Friday. She discovered a suspicious lump in his abdomen and biopsied it – the cells were irregular and probably cancer………so I was thinking it was his arthritis and that he could be improving when I think he was getting the strength zapped out of him by this tumor…..only getting worse and no chance of recovering. Dr. Johnson thought it was spreading rapidly and may have even reached his spine.

I never was so upset…I was with him petting him and she gave him a sedative to put him to sleep. I looked him in the eye and told him how much I loved him and he gave me a kiss…and he wasn’t much of a kisser. When he was sleeping I told him I would see him later and to wait for me. I love him beyond words…I feel completely numb right now but know I did the right thing…………
