Well, This is going to be jumbled. This weekend was suppose to be nice, I was going ona mini vacation, and then memorial day....well it didnt end well...I was helping my parents plant the garden sunday and went in the house to discover my dog of 14 years (he lives with my parents as him and my dad are best friends, and I have two other dogs) laying on the ground unable to move, and breathing very very labored....We knew it was time for him to go, after about 3-4 hours, he didnt get better and the doctor got out of surgery( we think a dog got hit by a car)..we took him to the vet and they took Xrays of his lungs, and hips. His lungs were tumor filled, and had several large areas that had overexpanded and could no longer be used. His heart was enlarged, and arthritis covered his rib cage not allowing his lungs to expand out, His hips looked great though and she couldnt figure out why he wasnt moving, and chalked it up to not being able to breathe, we decided to put him down. I hate seeing a Dog suffer, and I said my goodbyes at the house. they asked if I wanted to stay in the room as he passed, and I owed it to him as he has been by my side as long as I can remember, but I couldnt be there, it hurt too bad. So with this I will miss my buddy! and hope he is in a better place (if dogs can).
