In memory of: Cdn. Ch. Heathview Sophie Tucker

DOB: October 23, 2008

Deceased: February 10, 2017

Sire:  Ch Lonnkyle Pathos

Dam: Cdn. Ch. Heathview Dulcie

Sophie was our matriarch at Heathview.  This year she was 8.5 years old.  She was a wonderfully strong bitch who definitely was the boss amongst our pack.  Her health challenges started this year as we noticed a drop in weight and the development of a lump on the back of her neck.  We were distracted by the development of necrotizing fasciitis in her left rear leg in December. It was over 45 days of dressing changes as she responded favorably to the healing process.  In the last few weeks, she came into season, lost her appetite and the weight loss became more and more pronounced. She was vomiting anything we could get down her.   Diagnostic tests determined her prognosis was very poor with her lungs becoming involved.  Although we did not do an autopsy, we suspect a cancer process, likely a lympho sarcoma.  We made the very difficult decision to let her go peacefully.  Sophie is now  running over the rainbow bridge with Trixie and Mamma Mia.  We have lost 3 of our dear friends in the last 3 months.  It has been heartbreaking
