HOBSON (Pamploma Toledo Mist) 10.06.2003 - 28.12.2015

My Beautiful English Setter boy, Hobson died in my arms at around 8.30am yesterday, 28 December 2015 at the University of Queensland veterinary hospital in Gatton. Unbelievably, Hobson was still fighting and did not want to let go. The Hemangiosarcoma cancer had spread to his chest. The fluid was building up in his chest and Hobson was having problems breathing. I could not allow him to suffer any more. Fortunately the veterinarian on duty at the Emergency Department has treated Hobson and he knows us both well. He ensured that Hobson died with respect and dignity. I have been advised that all the UQ staff are crying for Hobson and for me. My most Beautiful and Extraordinary English Setter boy, Hobson. My Darling Boy. xxxxx

I wanted to thank everyone for making the effort to comment on Hobson's last blog. I appreciate your comment, Angela .. I know you did not mean any harm in the past. I have been unable to reply until now because .. I am still finding it very difficult to find the words to describe how I feel. Hobson and I have been through "hell" together over the last 12 1/2 years and I do not know how I could have survived without him. He was an extraordinary dog. Even when he was an 8 weeks old puppy he understood. He was always a "wise old soul". Misty is missing Hobson terribly. In his two crises in 2014 and 2015 Misty did not leave Hobson's side either. Our lives were blessed by our Beautiful English Setter Boy, Hobson. I am having a break from ES for a while. I hope you and your families all stay well. Best Wishes from Susan, Misty, Hallmark, Charlamayne, Khatalyst, Sam and our wild bird family xxxx
