It is with great sadness that I write this email to let you know that I have lost my best friend, Walter Mitty. I adopted Walter in February 2007 when he was six years old and he was my southern gentleman from Alabama. I could not have asked for a more loving, sweeter dog than Walter. He loved everyone and everything. He was indeed my best friend and I am distraught over his passing. Walter had surgery to have 2 large cysts removed and some dental work done back in October 2012 but after this he kept getting urinary tract infections. We treated them with antibiotics but nothing seemed to work. We had blood tests, urine analysts, x-rays and finally ultra sound and it was discovered that he had Prostate Cancer. The Vets told me that he had 2 to 6 months to live and I was devastated. Walter seemed to respond to medication but on January 1st Walter took a turn for the worst and on January 3rd, 2013 at 5:30pm he passed away.

I wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to have Walter in my life.
With my deepest regards,
Melanie Cole
