|Her face was just starting to turn white|
A couple months ago she was diagnosed with a tumor in her lung, and I had a valley fever test ran on it, but it turned out to be worse. She had been doing okay, heavier breathing and a slight cough when exerted. She had lost weight (which she need to do, but not like this) and I had started giving her more wet food mixed with the dry, and none of the cheap stuff full of all kinds of fillers. Last week she started having a harder time breathing, but was still eating and drinking water. Then yesterday she stopped and refused both and her breathing became painful to watch. The vet had told me what to watch for and as I saw it all happening I knew I had to make a decision, but my loving DH made it for me and said it was time to let go of her. He took her to the vet this afternoon and had her put down. We will be getting her ashes and bringing them home next week, and I will dispose of them myself, most likely out in the back yard. Dam! I gonna miss that dog!
