My sweet adorable Duke gave us a warning he could not keep his balance one day last week and was very lethargic. He was perfectly fine and running and jumping the day before this happened. I took him to the Vet and he couldn't walk in so they carried him to the office room for his exam. Poor sweet heart had his gums turning white and his tongue loosing color. They did many tests and new it was something not good. He needed a blood transfusion to prepare for surgery the next morning. They took 2 X-rays and an ultra sound and thought it was his spleen. So surgery began and hey found a very large fast growing cancer tumor called Hemargiosarcoma on his kidney. They removed his kidney and left the good one. We were optimistic after that and waited for the biopsy report for 4 days because we wanted to take him home no matter what the decision was. That is when we found out it was malignant. It broke our hearts and he had 2 seizures at the Vet that same night and by then the cancer had spread to his brain. The Vet called me and told us to come right down but he passed away 2 minutes before we got there. I saw him anyway to say my loving goodbyes and expressed my deep love for his little sweet body and spirit.
