Sept 1, 1999- January 25, 2010
Sorry I haven't been here lately. We had a devestating event here in the Amazon home. Poor, sweet Reuben passed on January 25th. He had a huge mass in his abdomen, and our options were surgery, let it go, or put him down. The surgery would have cost upwards of 5K and recovery would have been long and painful and it only would have extended his life for about 6 months. Letting it go would have meant watching him every second of the day for the mass to rupture resulting in massive internal bleeding and he would die a painful death. We decided that it would be most human to let him go while he was still feeling pretty good. We miss our boy.
