Petunia and her new rescued brother Fletch moved back to Dallas on March 30, 2011. She's been so happy, although a bit arthritic in her hips. She suddenly got sick with vomiting the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I had her at the vet getting IV fluids and they found an infection so she got antibiotics as well. She had been diagnosed with a lipoma on her rib cage in August but when the vet saw how large it was last week, she knew it was something else. She also found a "mass" in Tuney's abdomen. They wanted to do an ultrasound after the holiday. When I picked her up they said she was better and had eaten some, but when we got home she refused to eat. She would only sip water and clearly got week, could not walk. On Friday I had to call the vet and report her not eating, not walking well, yelping each time she was touched in her back or belly area. I knew it was her time. She went to sleep with Daddy J and I petting her, telling her what a good girl she's been and how much we love her. Our hearts are broken even though she will live on in them.
