Winston’s favorite two places were by your side (or your feet if you were working on the computer) and on the couch. By your side on the couch together was the best, but he was happy to hop up and nest in available blankets to get comfy. This eight-year-old boy came to the shelter as a stray with a limp; his owner who was out of town for the holidays decided he didn’t want Winston anymore and relinquished him. The shelter vet discovered the limp was caused by an aggressive form of bone cancer, and his leg was amputated. When asked if we would take him as a hospice dog after his surgery knowing his time with us might not be long, we gladly embraced him. Winston enjoyed many a day and evening on the couch with his two and four-legged hospice family before it was time to cross the Rainbow Bridge.
