2300. The 17-year-old Shih Tzu barked and barked the whole night.

Sep 17, 2015

The parents came yesterday after phoning me to confirm that the urn was ready the day after euthanasia and cremation. The dog was put to sleep as he barked the whole night every night. The parents had to work but they could not sleep.

"We tried your medication for the past 5 weeks," the mum said. "But he became groggy and could not go to pee. In any case, it was not very effective."

The young adult son, now 25 years old was very upset and wanted the urn as soon as possible. So the parents had phoned me twice.

"How old was your son when he got this Shih Tzu as a puppy?" I asked.
"He was in Primary 6," the mum said. "At 12 years of age."
"The dog has been his best friend for 17 years and he was very sad."
