We're losing another one. Trevor, a deerhound who turned up as a stray, slipped into a coma last night. He's about twelve, getting up there for that breed.
He was a friend of Tulip's. When Trev showed up, Tulip barked to get our attention, and then kept Trev engaged so he would wait for us to get him to safety.
They shared side by side runs for years, and always stayed best buddies.
I think Trev's dying of a broken heart.
I can understand that.
