T minus 23 days: Chauncy

Our big brown galumphing dog, Chauncy, passed today.  He’s been battling hemangiosarcoma, a highly aggressive cancer, for the past few weeks.  He’d been responding very well and was happy and bouncy yesterday.  Today, though, he would not eat and was very weak.  A trip to the emergency vet indicated severe internal bleeding, so his time had come.  Perhaps he decided that California was his forever home.  If we were going to leave, he had no interest in being anywhere else.  He leaves his adopted sister, Rosie, as the dog of the family now.

  1. So sorry you lost your dog Chancy! It’s hard to lose a member of the family! Glad you and Stephanie have Rosie to keep you company!


    1. Steve, I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. We know how devastating it is as they are such a key member of the family.

      This is the first I’ve seen of your blog and plans to ride cross country! Congratulations on your retirement. I’m retiring, too, in May.

      Any chance we can interest you in a very slight detour to southwest Michigan? We would love to host you in Gobles!!



    1. Steve, I’m so sorry. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved dog. I hope you take comfort in how good you were to Chauncy–because of you, he had a wonderful life! My heart goes out to you.


  2. Hi Steve, I am so sorry to hear about Chauncy. I’m glad he didn’t suffer for too long. He’ll be with you now on your adventure in spirit!
