R.I.P. Grendel

Grendel was our Cairn Terrier that was given 3 weeks to live. 2 years ago. If you don't remember, here's the post:

Anyway, he had liver failure that was causing his skin to slough off, and it was ugly and sad. We ended up changing his food (and in fact, all of the dogs) to a home cooked diet. Meran calls it doggy stew. Grendel made a fast recovery, and lived on.

His whole life, we joked his name should have been Eyor, not Grendel. He was not a scary monster at all, just the complete opposite. He was always the sick one, it was at least a year after we first got him that we found out that he had a urinal tract infection, and had probably had it for the year (or before) we had him.

Here's some photos of his better days.

Grendel in the back, he had some red in his coat.

Well, that's it. We loved him, and we know a lot of folks enjoyed him. We're glad he is finally pain free...
