November 19, 1997 – November, 2005

Binky was diagnosed with cancer of the salivary gland on October 22, 2005. He started radiation treatment on Monday, November 7, 2005. He was scheduled for 18 treatments. He had to be put under in order to have the radiation. On his fifth treatment, he never woke up. He was a special pug. He chased shadows all the time. Even when they were in the water, he’d jump in and chase those shadows! He was raised by his brother Mumbles, an English mastiff. So Binky thought he was a great big dog. He certainly had a great big heart. He was my four legged shadow, and he went with me everywhere.

I will keep him with me in my heart forever.
