bummer of the last couple of days...and more to come

we are so bummed right now, especially my dh......our dog has had a large tumor on her front left leg.......we chalked it up as a fatty tumor for most of this year...I took her to our vet a couple months ago & he referred us to a specialist.......wellllll, I saw a doggie Oncologist yesterday & we went back again today for a biopsy....they won't have the results until the end of next week to tell the degree of the malignancy, but, because of the size, they are already suggesting amputating her leg......welllll, she is my dh's baby, he's had her for 15 we are probably going to put her down instead of putting her through an amputation or radiation ....we're still going to wait until the test results are in......................but, needless to say, it's a sad house here right now

Oh Sara...I am so sorry to hear about your dog! They are an important part of our families and so helpless and dependent on us for everything. You will be in my thoughts and prayers and pleas keep us posted. Hugs to you :)

So sad about your doggie. Strange how you don't realize how much a pet fills your life, until you are in a situation like this. My prayers are with you and your family. Thanks for sharing your story and your talent! Hugs

a 15 year old dog is pretty much at the end of her life. I know how it feels to loose a dog....they are soooo much a part of the family......Dogs should just have a longer life span!!!
