We lost Tuxedo to bladder cancer in November 2020. We chose an at-home euthanasia because we knew Tux would be happiest and most comfortable at home, surrounded by his family. He would have been scared if left in unfamiliar surroundings with unfamiliar faces during his last hours. Home Pet Euthanasia was a good choice because Dr. Bridget was very patient, kind, and respectful with both the family and with Tux. She gave us the privacy and time we needed to say goodbye to Tux as he left to go to the Rainbow Bridge.
Tuxedo was a 11 ½ year old Lab/Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix which we adopted as a puppy from the Irvine Animal Shelter, through the Third Chance Program. He grew up with our two girls. They played dress-up and dressed him up too with hats, head bands, tutus, scarves, and Halloween costumes. He wore them all graciously and posed for photos very patiently. Tux loved going on walks; he always pointed to his leash with his snout.
Tux was the gentlest dog. Towards the latter part of his life, he took on human emotions. He was our best friend and loyal companion. He loved us very much and we all loved him. The pain of his loss still lingers.
