9/8/2008 - 12/30/2019With great, great sadness - we said goodbye today to our gentle, sweet, loyal, stunningly beautiful, and loving puppy -- Yuri. A true blessing every day of his life.

He survived nearly 33 full months after brain tumor surgery and radiation treatment, living a near normal life until this Thanksgiving Day when his seizures recurred.

With a typical life expectancy of 18 months after tumor diagnosis, Yuri was obedient to the end, giving us the far end of reported survival times from this kind of brain tumor.

We SO wanted to hang onto him forever, but saw his quality of life was suffering. He was the best dog ever! And the house feels so very empty. RIP my dearest little love.
