Pol does not understand the world anymore - in memoriam

In memoriam
Sadly, we have had to say farewell to Pol on 13 September 2010 - when he was in the veterinary clinic it turned out he had lung cancer in a very advanced state. We could only offer him a painless way to go - hasta siempre, Pol!

His owner had managed to dump the dog less than a month before by approaching an unsuspecting council worker and then disappeared - the telephone numbers and address on the documentation were not current anymore.
He did tell the dog lived in an apartment - we noticed he was a real nice boxer, used to people and very sociable. His "owner" must have known his dog was terminally ill, had we only known before ...

Suddenly he found himself tied to a cart outside the perrera, as there is no space in the perrera. Luckily we took him to the vet to be castrated - he never left the clinic after that...

He left this world for a better one, accompanied in his last moments by our vet and volunteers Pedro and María. We hope he knows at least we did love him.
