Our dog Buddy died peacefully in our arms this morning.
The whole thing happened very quickly. Starting about 6 weeks ago his appetite faded, then he barely ate anything, at first we didn't mind since he was a little overweight, then we became concerned, took him to the vet, found he had lost 20 lbs, but the vet found nothing, blood tested okay, we tried a wide variety of foods to see if he would eat anything, still he didn't eat, he lost more weight, we took him to the vet again Tuesday, she did an abdominal ultrasound and found tumors all over, in his pancreas, liver, spleen, and the really bad news is that it's inoperable. His condition worsened over the last four days.
He's been the most wonderful dog there ever was, and we miss him terribly.
