On Monday at about 3 PM Luke lost his ugly battle with Nasal Cavity Cancer. He was strong though as on Thursday he was playing ball in the backyard and tug of war. Even with the lump on his right face getting bigger. Friday he was very lethargic, Saturday he could walk only a few feet but looked like he was drunk, Sunday I carried him outside to go potty as he lost the ability to walk. My wife who he was her wedding gift, was driving back from Florida and got home Monday afternoon at about 1:15 PM. We fed him using a syringe and gave him water that way to. He wanted to go out so my wife took him out. All of his functions started failing and he died in her arms in his backyard at 2:58 PM. He wasn't the same after Thursday but I did what I could to comfort him until the end.
