In Loving Memory Of Misty

Sad news about Misty my Chocolate Lab of 8 years.…

When I got home from work last evening I noticed Misty was really ill (actually for the past several days she wasn’t herself). I had an appointment to see our Vet tomorrow but we could not wait. We took her to Tuft’s Vet Hospital Emergency tonight. They found a large mass in her abdomen – cancer. They could continue to do endless tests and operate, but in the end her prognosis was very poor and she was suffering. So Joe and I decided to have her put down. I spoke to our vet this morning. She said it was the right thing to do. What Misty had was not curable. We could have let her linger for a few more hours, or days, or weeks, but she would suffer. That lingering would have been for us and not her. Just need to share.
