Tiger, the shepherd of hearts

Tiger was probably the most active animal that I have ever owned, even a short walk to the corner store, meant frequent stopping at fire hydrants (yes dogs really do, do that) baring at every cat that looked at him funny, and of course…
Poop breaks XD
What this dog lacked in size, he sure makes up for in intelligence and agility.
If a backdoor was open, you could bet heed be rushing through it to run, roll and play in our backyard, even in winter, even in the rain. He didn’t care!
It broke my heart the day Tiger got sick, he had a form of doggy kidney stone, which is apparently common for his breed.
I and his vet both thought it was something curable, and treatable with the proper diet, medication and tender caring, but it just wasn’t enough and tiger passed away in pain about a month later.
It was hard seeing him go from a playful pup with a spring in his step, to a bag of bones barley able to lift his head to lick my hand.
