BROK - The end of an Era
My beautiful blue boy, Brok, passed away on 15th December 2004, after a brief yet brave battle with cancer. He went peacefully and with dignity, cradled in my arms.
Brok is the dog that changed my life. Through him, I met people, visited places and experienced events I never would have done otherwise. I would not be the person I am now if Brok had not come into my life. Dogologyâ would not have come into existence, if not for Brok. His legacy continues to enhance lives and improve the human/canine bond of others.
Brok touched many lives, and endeared himself to all that knew him. We will all have our own special memories of him and his antics. He was a one in a million dog, and I am so pleased he came into my life. I miss him and love him with every fibre of my being.
BROK: 12/04/1994 TO 15/12/2004 now at peace.

Experts agree that it's a good idea to use toys designed for dogs. That means you shouldn't let your dog play with small objects, such as little plastic children's toys, or sticks or stones, as they could become life-threatening obstructions in the dog's digestive tract later on.
