Elvis came into foster September 2015. He was a "Hancock" lurcher, born 23 April. He was obviously very bright and was very energetic. We enjoyed having him.
We eventually found a home for him with Brian and Janice, who were over here with the USAF. Brian suffers from PTSD and Elvis was to be a therapy dog for him. I saw evidence of Brian's problem when we did the handover at Cobham Services. There were sounds of pheasant shooting in the distance and he was very on edge.
They changed his name to Sirius and he did well with his training, but Hip Dysplasia became apparent.
He had an operation in July 2016 to remove the top of the femur on the worst side, and that worked well. The last post we had was January 2017 saying that he was fully recovered and could accompany Brian on 10 mile runs.
The whole family moved back to Texas a couple of years ago when Brian retired, but unfortunately Sirius was recently diagnosed with a malignant tumour in his abdomen which subsequently burst and he had to be PTS.
Run fast and free lovely boy! No pain in any joints now!
