Midget was my first English Setter. She was already 11 years old when she was given to me, but she was a good dog. She knew what was expected of her and taught me what she expected of me, which was petting, praise, and food & water. Whenever I let her off her lead, she would always jump in the back of my truck just wanting to go hunting. She knew her stuff too. One of the best dogs I have ever had the privilege of hunting along side.

Right when I got her, she developed this tumor on her belly. It never did bother her for almost 2 years. However, about 3 months ago she wasn't acting herself so I took her to the vet. They told me it was cancerous but it hadn't spread to any other part of her body. I knew it would be long, but I didnt want to think about it. After some shots and some rest, she turned around. She had a good 3 months. She ran in the back yard like she was a puppy. This summer she would come in the garden with me as I picked green beans and other vegetables.

I put Midget to sleep last night. She lost her strength and stopped eating. Still it was tough. Still is.

Rest in peace, Midget. You were a good dog. And friend.

Hate to hear it partner. Not alot that compares to the companionship of a hunting dog. Its crazy the amount of dedication and drive a dog can have for something that sometimes seems may just be to please you. Sorry for your loss.
