Hello everyone. Most of you know me from being a long time member here. I know I haven't posted on here in quite some time, the main reason being because Tank first got diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. Then we took him to a cardiologist only to discover he had an inoperable tumor located right on his heart, more specifically a Chemodectoma mass. We decided against radiation to make sure he would not suffer. Our cardiologist put him on medication and told us we'd have maybe a month left with him. Well, Tank being the fighter that he is hung on a fought for 7 months straight. Today, his fight came to an end. At 7 1/2 years old, he took his last breath at home by me & my bfs side. 7 years feels far too short. I've never grieved so hard before. Our hearts are heavy and we miss him dearly. I thought I'd share a video we made for him.

:tissue:OMG! I can't believe that Tank is gone. Just the other day you all were on my mind,was wondering how Tank was doing. We missed him. This is such a shock. I am so sorry for your loss. Tank was a sweetheart, and I remember how happy he was to move into your new house. So good that he was home with his beloved parents when his time came. Your video was a wonderful tribute to him.Very, very sorry for your loss of a sweet soul.As you know he will be there at the rainbow bridge to greet you. Much love and prayer to both of you.I know he loved you so,as you loved him.We will miss him.:pray::cry::heart::heart::heart: [MENTION=3189]boomsboo[/MENTION]

What a beautiful video to cherish. So sorry for your loss. Tank will always be in your hearts no matter what. He's running free now on the other side of the rainbow with his water bottle. R.I.P Tank :angelheart:

Thank you so much Lynn. I agree, it was such a blessing that he went at home. I wasn't sure I would be ready to watch him take that last breath, but now I am glad I did. We were the last thing he saw which brings peace to me. Hugs & thank you for your kind words and thinking about us. He was a fighter and went on his own terms. He was the best pup I've ever had. :angelheart:

I'm so sorry for your loss. I just lost my baby boy Hercules two weeks ago tomorrow. This has definitely been the hardest two weeks I have ever gone through but I'm hoping it will start to get a little better. That is such a beautiful video you put together. I was thinking of making an photo album as well to help remember my boy. Even though 7 years seems way too short with Tank, at least you know they were 7 great years and he was so lucky to be a part of your loving family during his time on earth.
