Stuart Hutchison was diagnosed with a brain tumor 8 years ago, and his loyal French Bulldog, Nero hasn’t left his side since.
Unfortunately, even after multiple rounds of surgery and chemotherapy, Stuart passed away on August 11th and the age of 25. His loyal dog passed away just 15 minutes later after rupturing his spine.
His mom said, “Stuart died about 1:15pm that day and Nero died about minutes later. He had three dogs, but him and Nero were like one man and his dog.”
“We got Stuart home four weeks ago – he wanted to die at home because that’s where he was born. We cared for him at home. We expected it but it is still tough. It is still a shock and traumatic when it finally comes.”
She added: ‘He went into hospital to start chemo at the end of 2018 and he was then having scans every three months.At a scan in March, they said the chemo was working. Him and Danielle went on holiday to Spain in May and he started getting a pain in his hand. He went for a check up and they were convinced there was nothing wrong. But then by June it started to affect his whole arm and that’s when they did a scan and saw the cancer had taken over his whole brain and had spread to his bones and his pelvis.
We always knew this was a possibility. Stuart was a strong, loveable character, everyone loved him. This is a story of a loyal dog that died from a broken heart. RIP.
