My beautiful, sweet lady is gone. Bone cancer in her front leg. I'm still mad & sad about it! And I can't believe it.

She started limping about 4 weeks earlier. I took her to the Vet 2 weeks later. She x-rayed and said it looked like cancer. I said no - she just pulled something. We started her on pain killers, but she didn't get better. I should've known. But I just couldn't face it - kept telling myself it would get better. Then last Friday night she went to bed, got up later & collapsed, layed there & died about 45 minutes later.

I sat with her & stroked her & told her I loved her. I told her what a good girl she was and how much I loved her and how sorry I was. Apparently that damn cancer was somewhere else in her, cuz once she went down, she never even tried to get up - she just laid there til she stopped breathing.

She was always so stoic. I never heard her bark or whine or roo or anything.

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry. I never knew. Please know Tickertape & I will miss you forever. Please run & play & be happy there at the Bridge. Wait for us. We'll see you again. Mama loves you.

Barb, we are so sorry that Mac left you so suddenly. Please do not blame yourself! That darn cancer is so bad and will get our beloved pets no matter what we try, in most cases.

 

If it makes you feel any better, 13 years ago my beloved Chocolate Lab, my heart Lab, had hemagiosarcoma, early stages, so I opted tto have her spleen removed. She did well for 3 weeks and then, just like Mac, collapsed and passed away, at home, within a half hour. There was nothing I could do for her anymore. Even though I had done what I could having her spleen removed that darn cancer took her anyway. So, please do not blame yourself.

 

Sending hugs :bighug

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
