We had to euthanize our Sadie yesterday
Our Golden Retriever, Sadie, had to be put to sleep yesterday after we found out what was first thought to be a snake bite turned out to be a very aggressive form of cancer. I can't remember the name, something really long, but she got real sick, real fast. She was only 6, would have been 7 in January. The vet did an aspiration on Monday and she called Friday to let me know what it was. My husband stayed with her, but I said my goodbyes here at home. I didn't think I could handle putting my dog to sleep again. I did stay with my other Golden, Scarlett, when she was euthanized, but she was 13 and had had a stroke. That was something I always said I would do with her, but it is so traumatic...at least for me it was.
We do have our other dog, Coco, who's a real doofus and she's been a lot of help. She's also part Golden, part Chow, part Black lab that we got from the Humane Society. She's missing her bud, but I think we're going to keep just one dog for now, at least until I retire and can stay home with a new puppy. Sadie was a good girl and soon I'll have another urn on my mantle to keep Scarlett company.
