Hello everyone. It is a sad day in our house again. Jillian's last diary entry has to be made by me, her mom, because she has crossed the bridge.
After several great weekends playing at the dog park and going to doggie daycare with her brothers, we noticed that she had lost a little weight. Didn't think much of it because of all the extra running around she was doing.
This Sunday we took her to a craft faire at a local park where she got endless pets from everyone she met and even got to sample the treats and pick the ones she wanted from a booth. All seemed fine and we went to Petsmart and bought groceries before going home.
When we got home she shared her doggie cookies with her brothers (sitting pretty as always) but didn't want her dinner. We noticed that someone had thrown up but didn't know for sure who and thought it was just too many cookies.
The next morning she didn't want breakfast and didn't want to get out of her bed. I took her to the vet thinking she just had a bug when they found a lump in her abdomen. X-rays showed a tumor on her spleen.
THis morning I took her to have her spleen removed thinking that I was going to bring her home in the morning but when they opened her up they found that she had multiple tumors throughout her liver and pancrease that it most likely had spread throughout her body.
Jillian didn't get to wake up from her operation and I didn't get to say goodbye in person, but I hope she knows that I am sorry and would have done anything to make her better if I could have.
I WILL MISS MY HOUNDIE BOUNDIE JELLY GIRL and Woody, her wrestlemaniabrother, will surely miss her too.
We love you Baby. . .
