Paxx Thunderhorse Cruzan

Yesterday was a tough day. One of the worst. We had to say good bye to our beloved Rottweiler, Paxx.
It was very unexpected and devastating how the day transpired. He had been coughing last week and we thought surely it was just an infection or something that we could treat with medication and take him home. We took him to the vet and it just spiraled into a nightmare.
Dr. Beverly was unsure what was going on with him. She decided she wanted us to bring Paxx in and talk to a specialist.
She called me in the morning saying she was very worried about Paxx and his red blood count levels. Noah and I visited him at lunch. The specialist still had not called so we were still holding on to hope.
Around 2:00 Dr. Beverly called me and told me the horrible news. Paxx had lung cancer. We didn't really have many choices. Surgery was not an option. Chemo would give him maybe two weeks. We had to make the most humane and the hardest decision ever.
Noah and I met at the vet's office and we stayed with Paxx for awhile. Noah's mom wanted to see him too so she came up. We said our goodbyes. It was tough. We all cried. And cried. And cried.
Four years ago we brought him home. He was this scrawny thing and the cutest thing we ever laid eyes on.

We fell in love. He always loved to please and loved the attention everyone gave him.

It is already so strange with him not at home with us. To see his little nub wag when we get home. Just seeing his still puppy face.

We love you. You were such a gentle, loving boy. We cherished every moment with you buddy. Miss you already.
Rest in Peace,
Paxx Thunderhorse Cruzan
