RIP Timi

We have lost our first Aussie Timi. He was an active agility dog for about 8 years (he started when he was 1 and stopped when he was 9).

Rest in peace, our little fighter!

By the old days, he's back started to ache. Spondylosis was diagnosed and he got retired from agility. But before his 10th birthday, he was too ill. We miss him and his huge terrier personality so much! :'(

Timi sleeping peacefully without pain with his favorite toy.
