Remember, folks: whenever a woman says "die for me because you are a man," just look her in the eye and say "my body, my choice."

Well That Was Quick

She's gone.  Splenic tumor, squishing her GI tract.  And even that didn't explain the pint of blood in her colon.  Yesterday she was a happy, bouncy dog, and today she died with her head in my lap.  No early signs, no decline, which is about as good as death gets for a dog.  And no time for me to prepare.  Which is really really hard for me, even with WolfAlpha here.

I'll spare you the rant about the protocol in that vet's office.  Suffice it to say I've never been charged so much for such poor service.  I won't be going back.

  4. I'm so sorry. I know how much it hurts to put down a dog -- I've done it 4 times so far and it never gets any easier. You just have to tell yourself that it's the right thing for the dog.

    And really, a quick painless death in the lap of a loved one is probably the best way to go out.

    All my love and hugs to you and your family.

  5. My condolences, Suz. I know what it's like to take an animal in for a diagnostic visit and then have to leave with an empty carrier or leash.
