Our beloved Terra


This will have to be short, as I am too devastated right now to say much. Yesterday our beloved Terra started peeing blood, and so she had to go to the hospital. Today we received the terrible news -- she is full of cancer. Surgery is not an option. This morning she was doing well but she has rapidly deteriorated today and is now on morphine. Later today we will be going down as a family to say goodbye to her and make sure she suffers no more. I am trying to keep it together but not doing a good job of it. This is going to be so hard. Above is a picture I took of her, only back in July. This has been so sudden and is such a shock. Just two weeks ago she had bloodwork done etc, and none of the test results had any cancer indicators. I just can't believe she's not coming home.

I am so sorry for you and your family. We went through this with our dog a few months ago...found out he had cancer and had to put him to sleep the same day so he wouldn't suffer any more.

My heart goes out to all of you.

Sorry to hear about this situation. I know how heartbreaking it must be. You can't replace a companion like a dog. It's hard to know that Terra is suffering but you can't help her except for doing what you don't want to do. Comfort to your family.

I cried when I read your blog tonight Lenore. I'm so sorry to hear about your beloved Terra. She looks like a beautiful and well-loved doggie. My thoughts are with you.
