For those of you who don't know, I have a Facebook Fan Page! You can access it at this web address:
I also have a Blog here:
My last Diary entries were all about my new brother and how happy I was that he was here... but there is news. :(
We took Caesar in for his checkup on March 9th and thought it was going to go wonderfully. He was playful, happy, energetic, and had an appetite that could only be described as voracious. But when the vet did his physical, she felt that his spleen was enlarged. So they did an ultrasound. Caesar had a large tumor on his spleen, that upon closer inspection looked to be Hemangiocarcoma.
There was also a lot of fluid in his abdominal cavity, which seemed to be coming from his spleen. After discussing it with Dr. Wisdom, and searching our hearts, we decided that the best course of action was to let Caesar go peacefully. We spent a long time, hugging him, holding him, and saying goodbye, and Daddy went with him to the room where they sedated him and then put him to sleep.
This decision was not taken lightly, but completely blindsided us. Caesar was older, we knew this, but he was so VITAL. The vet said that the way this cancer is though, that she would give him days, not weeks or months without surgery, and at his age, she was afraid the surgery would not be successful.
He was only a part of our family for 8 months, but we loved him, and we miss him.
We did add two new puppies to our family!
Their stories are long-ish and I'm tired, so you can find their stories on my blog or on their Dogster pages! :)
