We are very, very sad to say that last Thursday, August 18th, we had to help our Ucle Monty end his struggle with Lymphoma.
Monty touched our lives in a way that we did not even know was possible.
Everyone he met commented on his "aura" or how "there's just something about him". We cannot believe how incredibly fortunate we were to know him, love him and be his family. Even though we only knew him for 10 months, it feels as though he was always with us. And he always will be.
There's nothing like the love of an old rescue boxer (or boxer pit mix in
Monty's case ;0) He is our angel. His big brown eyes and sweet spirit will
never be forgotten and will always be missed.
Crystal, Chris and Vegas

OMG!!! I had to look twice to be sure his name was in this forum! That's so sad! He was so adorable! That's terrible. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad he found a home with you though. One of the best there is. :grouphug:

Thank you guys. I still can't believe it. I can't believe I'll never see him again. It's so weird and surreal. I miss him so much.

Sorry to hear about Uncle Monty. Dam cancer strikes again, I wish there was a cure for it both human and animal form. RIP Monty :angel:

I love Boxers and anything that looks like one , especially Uncle Monty.
:sorry: But remember, he is playing in the fields past the Rainbow Bridge, and he is happy and healthy now.
