Thanks for the condolences, everyone, it's warming.  His brother spent a deal of the night howling in the kitchen, then we relented and let him upstairs.  We're all pretty zonked today.

@Mike, that's lousy. Good luck to Bob - he'll probably be coming home with one of those pestilential plastic cones round his neck.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Thanks everyone regarding Bob.
I've got to collect him at 9 this morning. The pellet went through the muscle just into his abdomen. They've got it out, he's eaten something. Now we've got to try to keep him indoors for 10 days.
Last time we tried that, he destroyed the cat flap. Bricks may be needed!

Bob is spending the night (or more) in the vet' hospital after apparently being shot with an air gun.  :sick:
He went out about 5am and we didn't see him until about 8pm, which is unusual, but not unheard of - we noticed a wound on his right hand side, in the abdomen area. Phone to the vet, trip up the road. Thank goodness for insurance.

WTF, so sorry to hear.  Some people are fucking scum.

We're shattered: Ezra's brother Raz died last night, just before midnight.  He hasn't been in great health recently - he had cancer - but he didn't give us any hint that he was that bad.  He was lying on one of our our bedroom rugs and we'd just put the light out when he coughed a bit, and the room filled with a stink that got steadily worse.  We put the light on to find him in convulsions, and he died a few minutes later.

We can hardly believe it: our two wonderful boys gone in two days. Of course we're thinking poison, but really we can't tell.

He's lying in the hall now. on the tiles where it's cool.  We're both exhausted: after getting him downstairs and cleaning up our bedroom we were a long time getting to sleep, and we both woke early.  We'll take him for cremation tomorrow, when the vet's place opens again.

That's awful, T42. Feel so sorry for you. They do leave a big hole when they go.

I'm so sorry to hear about both Ezra and Raz. That's very sad.

I hope Bob keeps recovering from surgery well (expletives towards people who shoot animals for harm).

We can hardly believe it: our two wonderful boys gone in two days.

To lose both so close together... That's awful. So sorry for you.

Thanks for the sympathy, everyone.  We're just back from the vet's, leaving him for incineration.  Tomorrow I'll do one more trip to drop off all the food, treats, left-over medicines and other paraphernalia, to be given to the SPA - the bunch that run dogs' homes in France.

The vet told me that he often sees a dog dying soon after a sibling, and Raz was ill and suffering in any case. Over now.
