It has been too hard to write about this. The pictures and videos from the National tell the story of how quickly life can change. This was my girl on May 10th – happily giving her all as she always did.
About a week after the national she showed signs of a bladder infection, which the vet prescribed antibiotics for. A week later she seemed better but still had a minor dribble. When I took her back to the vet, she had gained a pound and had a bit of a paunch. An x-ray showed a mass, which was devastating.
I took her to the conservation area and we had a walk and a talk for an hour. I got some pretty photos of her.
And then we went back to the hospital and the vet took her back to hopefully find something that could be removed. Unfortunately that was not the case, and while she was under I had to make the decision to let my smart, sassy and wonderful girl go as her liver was full of cancer. How she had gone that long without showing signs I don’t know, but she was the best and now I am trying to fight my cancer with the courage that she fought hers. My partner was supposed to be with me through the battle, but instead is watching from above
Goodbye my special girl……there will never be another like you.
