4th Oct 2005 - 10th May 2012
Yesterday at 3:15pm we said goodbye to our beloved Conan. He was an incredible, fun loving 6yr old Bull Mastiff.
Conan was the most enjoyable dog in the world, he loved us and he loved life so much. He was a mad food addict but he did have his standards - no lettuce, no kidney and no honey. He was also really flexible for a large breed dog - you would not believe what he could do with himself if he tried hard enough. He was a dog who loved to play, to run around and go completely mental, he could throw himself around in 360's and run around like a loon. His bark was rich and loud, he did love to hear himself speak (I think he learned this from Koffie).
His favourite food was fruit, oranges especially but he did have a soft spot for peaches and nectarines. He had a funny habit of barking with no noise, his gob would move and no sound would come out. He also liked to gob your face, this involved him opening his mouth and putting it on your face - slobbery loves. He was affectionate, proud, protective and so very very loved.
Conan was diagnosed with Lymphoma but he did not let this get him down and he fought until the very end until he let us know that he was ready to let go and move on. With tears in our eyes and love in our hearts we said goodbye to our amazing baby boy!
Conan passed away at home on May 10th 2012 with those he loved surrounding him.
He is survived by his darling Bella who misses him greatly.
