   Leave a bone for *ARTHUR* (6/17/98 - 1/19/11)


June 17th 1998

Arrival Story:
We got Arthur from a pet store at age 3 months? They first showed us a Bijon but she was too expensive; than a dog that showed aggressive behavior; and finally, Arthur came in, long legs, HAPPY, jumping, smiling, very friendly. So much of a good personality that he won our Hearts right way. In the car my then 3 year old daughter chose his name in accordance to cartoons she used to watch. After all this was her dog. He lived at my parents house until we moved from NJ to MA about 5 years ago. We thought he was a mutt until one day at an airport we saw the same exact dog, only gray coat, green eyes and a girl! We asked the owner what kind of breed and he told us the story about Labradoodles. OMG, finally Arthur had a breed! Late summer of 2010, I found his mouth cancer. We took him for radiation treatments and medication to no avail. He came back to almost being himself in late November and/or beginning of December 2010. One night when padding him I found out that his body was full of lumps. About three weeks later, I had to put him down to sleep. My heart has never been the same.
