As you know.. I have a very sick dog.. and when he got sick initially, I posted about him... mainly because I had no idea dogs could get hepatitis!
Well... today he is having surgery... we have been fighting this battle for almost 4 weeks now... he is on 60mg predisone twice a day and his numbers are just not right... vet says that he is producing alot of new red blood cells, as many as he would expect to see in a normal healthy pup... but something is destroying them... there is no bleeding in the belly so he thinks it is his spleen... he said that when he opens him up and it is just an " angry" spleen, he will remove it... however, if he opens him up and there is a tumor, and it has spread to other organs, then it is untreatable and I will have to make a decision... of course my decision is to not let my buddy dog wake up... as hard as that is to make, why wake him up if what he has is untreatable? Makes no sense and is selfish on my part to make the dog I love so much suffer for however long he may have.. he is 11 1/2 years today and has lived a good life with lots of love... thanks everyone for your kind words before... praying for an angry spleen but ready if not....

Well, I got the call I was hoping to not get... untreatable... so we will have him cremated and will bury him in our back yard.. thank you for the prayers... sad day for sure...

is there anyway you could get me a picture of him? I'm kinda the go to for my fam and friends in creating edited images for fb, webpages, obituaries, etc. I would love to make you something special you could print out and keep. I had a dog only for a few months that had a lot of issues and I had to put her to sleep. Hardest thing I ever did in my life! I still have her ashes in a beautiful box and a picture next to it.

I'm so so sorry for your loss!
