Tonight at 7:30p I let Spade cross over to the Rainbow Bridge. His lymphoma had progressed so far. Last night went I went to work his neck was swollen and he was still in good spirits. This morning when I got home from work I did not get my normal 'lets beat everything with my tail and feet to let mom know how happy I am' greeting. All I got was him walking up to me. No excitement. Sometime during the night one of the nodes in his neck ruptured and was causing him to have breathing problems and difficulty swallowing. I decided that all day with no good was a sign. :cry1 I know I did the right thing and I know it was time. I made a promise to him that when the bad outweighed the good I would release him. My beloved heart dog is now running free and eating God knows what! :) I held his head in my lap as the vet gave him the medicine. Mom, dad and baby sis were all at the vets with me and it truly helped to have them there. Shortly after Spade was gone I came to realize he truly was my heart dog. :wub: His ear tatoo was 27A. I am 27 and I was the first born. I got him 2 days after my 27th birthday. :heart He was an awesome dog and tolerated a lot. I knew that when he whimpered tonight he was in too much pain to bear and I couldn't stand it. I probably will disappear for a while and collect myself. I want to thank everyone for all their support and compassion.
