Harry is a Border Terrier. He was born in July 2000, and was named after Harry Potter. His pedigree name is Bramble Keeper. He enjoys walking, and playing games with golf balls and sticks and doing this blog.
Harry went to the vet today and was X-Rayed and had an Ultra Sound Scan. Everything now makes sense: his difficulty breathing, being so slow on very short walks, the hollow coughing and sickness, the limping, and swollen tummy. He is not very well at all. It is not just his heart but also his liver and lungs. The change has become noticeable over the last week. Tumours have spread. It is beyond treatment I'm afraid.
Harry went on a nice walk this morning. He met some new dogs including one that the owners thought was going to be naughty and jump. But he didn't jump so they went away very happy with their young dog. Harry also kicked up lots of fallen leaves, and smelled lots of interesting smells. He is now asleep and could be reliving the highlights in dreamland.
Like Harry Potter's cloak of invisibility. there are places where it is hard to see where the living room rug begins and Harry ends. The power of the rug grows with age, and one day Harry may be hidden completely.
