These pictures of Rufus and Jess
were taken a couple of weeks ago.
I remember thinking that they reminded me of a Pushmepullyou.
I don't remember being unduly worried about Rufus then,
and yet I think it was about that time that we started having concerns about him.
He had developed a limp.
Similiar to Jewel.
Yesterday, a visit to the vet
confirmed, that like Jewel,
Rufus has bone cancer.
At the moment I'm typing this using one hand.
My other hand is continually stroking Rufus
as he lies next to me on the sofa.
He doesn't like me to take my hand away from him.
Poor lad, so strong and robust.
I think at the moment we are feeling a bit stunned by the news.
In only just over 5 months,
we are looking at losing another of our dear greyhounds.
