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.

You're in my thoughts. It's hard losing someone you love.

It's so sad to hear about losing a dear friend and I've lost
so many over the years. Keep your memories always.

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
