It's hard to say goodbye to a loved pet so it was with a very heavy heart we made the decision to let our Sasha go. She had a soft tissue carcinoma that first appeared only a couple of weeks ago as a huge lump on her shoulder that appeared almost overnight. Tests came back as negative however a third test confirmed it was indeed cancer. She was an old girl maybe about 16 possibly more and we felt she deserved to leave this life with dignity not to suffer unnecessarily. Our vet was wonderful, so kind and compassionate which helped to make the experience bearable. There have been tears but we know we did the right thing in choosing the long sleep over pain and suffering. Goodbye old girl.
