It is with a heavy heart that we announce we had to say good-bye to Fergus on August 1st.   Fergus was struggling with heart failure and had also recently been diagnosed with renal failure.  The two are difficult to treat together at best and Fergus fought hard until he was just too tired.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with his story, you can read about Fergus here:

We only had a year and a half with Fergus but it feels like we had him forever.  He came into our lives right after we lost Big B and I think we crossed paths because we both needed each other.  It’s almost as if Big B sent him to me in my time of need and grief.   He fit into our home so perfectly it’s hard to believe we didn’t have him forever.    A couple of weeks ago, we had some photos done by Julie Austin and Fergus charmed her and everyone he met.  Always one to roll over for a belly rub he broke down stereotypes and preconceptions of everyone he met.  He did good work but it was time to rest.  RIP Sir Fergus Of Bravo, thank you for letting us love you and loving us back.
