A Sad Weekend
Sadly, our beloved dog-friend, Briquette, passed away this weekend. She had been acting lethargic all week and didn't want her treats, but friday she wet inside. So,we planned to take her to the vet on monday. Saturday night she threw up in the middle of the night and had trouble walking. When Andy took her outside to go to the bathroom, she wouldn't get up off the deck. When I went outside, she seemed so frightened, almost sad. Andy took her to the emergency vet in Chesapeake (VA). They noticed a huge (grapefruit-sized) tumor on her stomach. She passd that night. My question is why didn't she show symptoms before this? I mean with that size tumor, the symptoms shouldn't have just showed up. She had been to the vet twice since New Year's, too, for normal check-ups. We miss her already. She was our friend.
