God's speed, buddy.  You were the best!

I'll write more in a day or so and do a proper tribute to this beautiful dog.  In short, Sunday night I found a huge lump on his chest.  Monday he was diagnosed with malignant melanoma.  His chest cavety was full of fluid around his heart.  Tuesday I took him for a visit to his stream which he loved.  He declined rapidly.  Last night he could not get comfortable, was having trouble breathing and stopped eating.  The vet came to the house this afternoon.  Ruby and Otto both got to say good by to him.  I'm a wreck and I'm relieved that he's no longer so uncomfortable.  He told me with his eyes that it was time.
