This is not cancer related, but has been another day of extreme sadness for my family and me. We were preparing to go to the cabin to list it with a realtor.
My son's dog was all happy & excited as she likes to travel. As she's done a hundred times before, she leaped for the Jeep seat. She lost her grip and fell flat on her stomach on the pavement. He had to lift her into the jeep and get her out when he arrived at my house. She was lethargic and just out of it, so we rushed her to the vet. It was discovered that she had a mass on her spleen & it had ruptured. Although it was very expensive, I told the vet to try & save her. She made it through the surgery, but had lost a lot of blood & could not recover even with transfusions. The vet & staff tried everything but they could not save her.
This is just almost too much for my son. Losing his dad last month & now his best buddy. She went everywhere with him & my grandson, who is also grieving.
Her name was Brownie & she was only a "mutt" but we loved her very much.
Thanks for listening.
