Arrival Story: I acquired Cyrus from a breeder in Lockhart, Texas. He was born on Valentine's Day and has been my sweetheart ever since. He is so intelligent and loving. The American Bulldog breed is so wonderful. I have shared my life with an Akita, two Rotties and a Pit Bull Terrier, all of which have gone to Rainbow Bridge. There is nothing like sharing my life with Cyrus, he makes me laugh every day.
Cyrus was diagnosed with bone cancer in his wrist on Jan 29th 2013. On February 7th he had peanut butter and cheese with his breakfast meal, went for a long car ride with his face out the window and then got a Wendy's double cheeseburger all to himself for lunch. He then walked with me into Dr. Carr's office and left this world with dignity and grace. It was the right decision for him; not a day too early or a day too late.
