It's with a broken heart I have to tell you that we had to finally make the decision to have Bishop put to sleep this morning. Our little man gave us a slight emotional reprieve before he totally escalated out of control. We tried for 10mths to try and help him with no success. To everyone for their love and advice we really do thank you:grouphug:. Atleast my little man got to spend those last 10mths free of a cage, knowing love.
Mommy loves you and will miss you every moment.

Oh Aslan...I'm so sorry. RIP Bishop.

You did your best, aslan. But sometimes even the best isn't enough :grouphug: Life doesn't always seem fair.
You gave him the only love he's ever known. It's not an insignificant gift.

Oh no Aslan,I did not even know this little sweet-heart was sick:cry:
I know it's not much of a comfort right now,but he got to know what being loved is all about because of you and Grace:grouphug:
So very,very sorry :rip:little Bishop
April 6th, 2009, 05:12 PM
Thank you for the condolences everyone. My house is in sad shape at the moment.
Chico2,, Bishop wasn't physically sick...He had developed a very serious aggression issue, that no matter what we tried nothing helped. We believe it was genetic at this point. He was becoming dangerous to the other dogs and myself.
April 6th, 2009, 05:16 PM
OMG,he was fine when I was visiting,maybe he had some kind of mental problem:confused:from being cooped up in a cage at the former owners.
Still,whatever the reason was,:grouphug::grouphug:to Grace and you:grouphug:you did what you had to do.
April 6th, 2009, 06:02 PM
I am so sorry to hear that Bishop was not getting better.
:rip: Bishop. :candle:

I am so sorry Aslan that it came to this, but remember you set him free. He has nothing to fear anymore and bear( who I had to do the same thing) will be welcome him with open paws
April 6th, 2009, 06:42 PM
ohhh aslan , I am so so sorry :sad: you did all that you could to save him , but sometimes , it's not enough for some dogs. :sad: he was a very lucky boy to end up at your house and no where else , where he would have been miserable :sad: he is now free at rainbow bridge :rip:
I wish I could give you a real hug :grouphug:
April 6th, 2009, 06:46 PM

Ohhh Aslan and Grace, I am so very sorry for your loss.
Aslan, I remember when I first came to pets.ca you posted a pic of Bishop on the TJT, and I thought "oh what a cutiepie!".
I don't know his story, but I'm sure the last 10 months have been without a doubt the very best 10 months the lil man could ask for, having you and Grace to love him.
:rip: sweet Bishop, :candle:
Aslan, hugs to you and Grace :grouphug:
April 7th, 2009, 04:40 PM
Grace and I would like to thank everyone for your kind thoughts and words, it really does mean alot to us and the two fuzzbutts here.
I really want to say a special thank you to Hazel for putting aside past issues and being such a kind heart when i really needed a shoulder. You made me feel less like the failure i felt.:2huggers:
And of course the gooftroup for keeping me online and amused lastnight. You guys are the bestest.
April 7th, 2009, 05:34 PM
Hey Aslan you may not realise it but you have made many cyber frineds here..regardless of what we think sometimes we all keep coming back for the same reason...the animals (and the abuse!!! :D):thumbs up
