Sadly, another one to add....

Roger, mismarked black (well, dark brown) berkshire. Rescued as a baby with his two brothers after being dumped in a playing field.
Put to sleep one week before his second birthday after a struggle with lymphatic cancer.

Bless you Roger the Dodger  :heart:

Hi,

We're new here, but we wanted to add Sally to your survey.  She passed away three years ago and was 4 years old...cancer.
