I adopted Simon at 5 months old in October, 2007. He was my first standard poodle and truly the love of my life. He was my companion, my soulmate and the best dog I’ve ever known. In 2017, he developed a tumor over his left eye. I brought him to VCSS and Dr. Seguin was able to perform surgery and, even though we weren’t sure it could happen, was able to remove the tumor and save Simon’s eye. Dr. Seguin and the wonderful staff at VCSS bought me one more year with my boy before I had to say goodbye. I will always be grateful for that year – I still miss my boy terribly, but I know he’s running free and happy, and will be there for me, one day.
