There are several pups here who had amps due to one cancer and then developed a mast cell tumor.  Ajax is one I can think of, I know there have been some more recently.

…on behalf of Kathleen, aka kazy55, for Ajax...

Dear Friends,

It is with exceptionally heavy hearts that we write to inform you of the loss of our beloved, tri-pawed, family member Ajax

…to us that his life would could no longer sustain the level of joy, happiness, grace and dignity that made him such a unique and special dog.

Ajax brought immeasurable joy and happiness to our lives and hopefully, in some small but meaningful way, to each our you.

Among the many names that we…

…had for Ajax,one was "The Glue" because he connected us to so many wonderful people. He served as a silent alpha dog for numerous puppies in Central Park, a…

…for all who met him.

All of you opened your hearts and many of you shared your laughter, hugs, treats, adventures, homes, pools and meals with Ajax. Our 14 year old Labrador Retriever "Puppy" led a remarkably wonder-filled life, in no small measure, thanks to your love and kindnesses.

We…

…us and our little buddy over the years as we have attempted to provide him the richest and fullest life possible.

Special thanks go out to all Ajax's veterinarians, surgeons,oncologists, rehab therapy team, caregivers, house-sitters and especially his long time dog walker Martin and weekly…

…friend Eva for their exceptional care of him and for being part of Team Ajax.

We thank each of you for the love and kindness you showed him during his wonderful life and hope the memories of him will bring smiles to your…

…faces in years to come.

We miss our buddy dearly, cherish each and every moment he graced our lives, and look forward to celebrating Ajax's life and memories with each of you sometime soon.

All our love,

Bill & Kathleen
