    Yesterday after a very short battle with cancer I had to put my wonderful friend my Shar-Pei, Mei-Han to sleep. She was so special and the end came too quickly. But I want to share something special, Shar-Pei's are an old Chinese breed of dog. This morning I went outside to water and found that my China Dragon was in spike. I know it sounds funny but I took it as a sign that all will be OK and that she is in a better place.

    Below is a photo of Mei-Han and my French Bull and her friend Fleur and below that a photo of the China Dragon.

    Sorry to hear of your loss
    (I always wanted a shar-pei, but I heard they commonly have skin issues with the wrinkly face skinfolds)

    It's tough to do that to a family member (been there way too many times), but sometimes it's the humane thing to do...

    Ray, I'm a firm believer that we are more considerate of our pets when it comes to being humane.

    I'm sad for you, also. Words can't describe the loss of a loved pet.

    Hang in there. Maybe your China Dragon will be awardable and you can name it after your beloved shar-pei.

    Very sorry. Lost border collie to lymphoma, liver swelled so that he couldn't breath. Very glad your orchid is flowering and best wishes for your family
