Putting my dog down on Tuesday
After a short battle with cancer, hemangiosarcoma to be exact, my husband and I are putting our dog, Bo, down on Tuesday. The tumor, which was removed only 3 weeks ago, has grown back and is starting to bleed from the old stitches site. I have been terribly upset all day. I know everyone here has lost a human, but none the less, it hurts so bad. He is the "favorite" of my 2 dogs. I rescued him after he was thrown out ot a truck in someone's yard. Drove over 4 hours (which was only half way) to get him. That was 4 1/2 years ago. I know he was an old hunting dog, and I know we have given him the best years of his life, but still I am sad. Just wanted to express my feelings, I haven't been able to stop crying all day. SOmetimes I think the anticipation is worse than the actual "putting to sleep". I know how bad this hurts, I can't even imagine if it was one of my children, my husband or my parents. Thanks for listening.
