3/31/23 Very sad news….we suddenly lost Dill. Dill was surrendered to us when members of the family tried to get in his face and he nipped them.
He had beautiful blue fawn coloring. Dill was a great dog, he was super friendly and active. He loved his beagles. He always seemed to know when he was coming to Beagletopia and he definitely gravitated towards his breed and extended family. He had the love of his family, who saw him and made him part of their family right away. He was the supervisor in his household and made sure everyone knew it, but of course, they already knew this and gladly accepted it. He had many adventures and was such a happy guy. Dill was about 12 years old now and no one would ever have known that. His sister joined him earlier this year and although she was considerably younger than him, they were two peas in a pod. They had the same thin body type and same playful energy. They had so much fun wrestling and zooming around.
His family took him into the vet when they felt something was wrong and he was distended. The vet assured them, everything was fine and bloodwork looked great. Now, I say this because I am upset about it. You know your dogs better than anyone as you spend all the time with them. You know when something is wrong. Please persist and make your vet know they need to not dismiss your concerns. A few weeks later, they brought him in again as now he was not only distended but not acting like himself. It was their worst fears…Cancer. And now surgery was off the table because it was already rupturing and now he only had days. I am devastated they lost their beautiful Dill. We all loved him and we are so sorry for his family’s loss. Dill had an amazing energy and was fun to be around. We know they are hurting, but we hope their memories can help comfort them in time. Rest in Peace Dilly.
