RIP Banjo You Will Be Missed
Hi Everybody. At 6.30 tonight our baby boy Banjo passed away suddenly. Luckily the Mrs is on holiday so we were both there calling his name as he went. Otherwise we both would have been out because I pick the Mrs up at 6. He was only young tomorrow would be his 9th birthday. I probably shouldn't be on here but I don't know what to do with myself.

Oh Rob - I am so sorry - do you know what the cause was. Just talk to us Rob - tell us about Banjo - how did he come by a name like that.

RE: RIP Banjo You Will Be Missed
Hey Rob!

No point in thinking you didn't care..

You did.

And all the rest...

Take the time you need. It is always awful.

Don't ask me about Blackie (renal failure), Lassie (Cancer), Zinadwe (dabies), Mumbuna (Killed by a hippo), Fizzy (Heart disease. Maybe...), Buster or Dieta.

RE: RIP Banjo You Will Be Missed
The vet seemed to think is was a stroke or heart attack based on what we described to him. We gave him the name Banjo because he was a lively bugger when he was having a moment you could imagine the scene being backed by a banjo in full swing, it hard to put it into words as to the reasoning behind it. There again other times he was more like Dylan from The Magic Roundabout.

Sounds like a real character - and great memories for you later when things settle down. How are the other two dogs taking it.

RE: RIP Banjo You Will Be Missed
It is always sad when your dog passes. They are members of the family. The last dog that passed for us was our little mini daschound and it took quite awhile to get over it. I feel your pain.

RE: RIP Banjo You Will Be Missed
My thoughts are with you and yours Rob. Having furbabies myself and having lost some, I feel your pain and loss.

It's at least a little comforting that you guys were there with Banjo. Hugs!

Mika [red] is missing him I think he was her playmate though she growled at him a lot it was him who played tug o war with a rope with her more often than Shae [black n white] We had almost 9 years with him, lots of memories. We know he had a better life than he may have because we swear to this day that where we got him from was just an outlet for a puppy farm.

Thanks Paul we had four cats pass over the years but none hurt quite like this.

That is what gives me some comfort, he passed with us at his side calling his name. Just before he collapsed I put my face near his though he never gave me the usual tongue face wash he did look at me.
