Last night we lost our sweet Memphis to bloat, a condition not uncommon in larger breed dogs in which their stomach becomes twisted. We took her to the vet emerg in Oakville and they performed surgery, but there was already irreversible damage done and we were advised she would not be able to recover.
Memphis, who was a Landseer Newfoundland, was a wonderful companion. She loved car rides, wandering through forests while I looked for mushrooms, and especially swimming. She was our pal and a member of our family and we loved her dearly. She was just short of 8 years old.
Here are a few pictures of Memphis over the years.
