Last night we suddenly had to say goodbye to Tao.
It seems he may have had a tumour which ruptured. He had started drooling badly ( this had happened a few days ago, but we thought he had eaten some wild mushrooms). He recovered after medication, but last night it happened again. After a short time he went listless & had bloody diahorrea so we rushed him to the vet. We had to help him on his way as it was obvious he wasn't well.
We had a wonderful 11 months of life with him, he was a real character & people never believed he was 13 years old.

Max, unfortunately my French Beardie lover forum is private so you can"t access it if you are not a member. However, a few weeks ago, when it was Tao's 13th birthday, I had copied there the lovley photo of him on the beach which you had posted here (we have a section called "Our Non-Beardie friends) saying how beautiful he was and didn't look 13 at all. Several of my forum friends also love Briards and have had some in the past, and everybody agreed on how gorgeous and "young" he looked. So this morning I posted there again to tell my friends the sad news... It's a shame you can't see all the reactions - "bon voyage, Tao!" was one among lots of others...

Max and Nick, dear Tao was blessed to have had you two to share the last part of his life.




RIP dear Tao and safe journey to the bridge where all our loved ones will guide you in.




Thinking of you both and sending love and hugs
