Yup just put my dog down due to liver cancer, 10yr old Brit.
Went in for incontinence and 2 weeks later after tests and diagnosis made the heavy decision.

she got our ducks in nothing flash but a solid worker.
G.S.P. huntaway
boob swelled up Vet chopped it off and it gave her another year before coming back...april she went back to vet...Brian said she could have another opening weekend with us and we put her down the next week..I took day off work and carried her out to car took off in boat and buried her by our maimai

Sorry to read about Red Salmoner! and to others that have lost your Mates
Sadly - my Mate, Cruz died a couple of days ago of a heart tumour at 9.5 years of age - way too early
We had a big day trapping in the bush last week - that night he had a massive heart bleed that filled his body cavities - over a few days he recovered a little but a trip to a specialist radiographer vet on Tuesday showed he had an ugly heart tumour - it ruptured again the next day so we had him put to sleep
He had a huge heart and strong body - there was nothing that would stop him getting to the next trap - he knew every inch of my trap lines
Over the years in our bush properties at Te Puke and Katikati and in community reserves we are currently trapping - it never ceased to amaze me how he could remember the tracks
Cruz changed my life as we both embraced predator control in the hills - he loved to massage the next possum or cat - but would never touch a rat
Love your dog while you have the chance - they donít last forever! - after nearly 50 years of long living Labradors - I canít imagine life without a Lab so I am currently trying to find a young adult dog

That's not good Cruz Sad My last girl went off her food and took her in for exploratory surgery and they found her intestines were riddled with Cancer and fed by the main blood vessel so couldn't be fixed. They ( and me finally...on the phone) decided it would be better for her if she didn't wake up. That was one hell of a slow drive back to the vet to pick her up† Cry

It always seems like the best dogs get taken early. Although my last old boy went to 13 which is pretty good for a Rottie ( he is my avatar ).

I've now decided I will always have more than 1 dog since having 1 and then no dogs would be too much to bear when 1 shuffles off.

Here is my old girl and boy on the work truck a few years ago Smiley



And my current 2 woofers, doing it hard on their own outside couch Smiley

Had to rehydrate after reading through this thread. Mate, that first pic is beauty.

My family has always had english setters, all four of them pretty much fed the same: dog roll, biscuits, chicken necks, milk and cheese (apparently dairy is a no no but we didn't know better at the time). All of them lived to 14+ and were from two very reputable breeders. Not sure if it's the genes or we just got lucky.

Was gonna post a pic but new Photobucket  Lips Sealed
