My sweet dog, Jack, has not been feeling well for a few days.

I took him to the vet thinking it was a digestive thing.

They did x-rays and blood work and told me that... he has cancer and needs to be put down.

I am gobsmacked.

I can't stop crying.

They suggested that they do it right then.

I was not ready. (Will I EVER be ready?)

I brought him home and we are loving on him.

I will take him back in the morning.


*heavy sigh*

So sorry Lydia.

Losing a pet is never easy, but now more than ever.

I am so sorry to hear about this. Our dogs are such a bright spot and a comfort -- especially in challenging times like these. I think I may have mentioned to you before that the image of Jack running through the snow has always held a special place for me. It is one of those DPC images that is seared in my brain that will always evoke a smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

i didnt know about this thread when i posted in my birthday one that Maricua started ..
but i did mention Jack and how sad i am for your loss ..
i came out of that birthday thread and saw Jack as the subject of another thread .. clicked on it .. and saw you had posted what you have been going thru ..

i am really so sad to hear about your loss and the terrible shock it must have been .. i sit here in tears hearing about it ..
it brings me back to the day i lost katee .. so unprepared that her time with me was up ..
the suddenness can put you in an almost altered state of consciousness .. well it did to me ..

interesting ... but i have chosen Jack twice in a row when i have followed you in pick your fav pic thread .. not knowing what was to come ..
the photos of him running thru the snow and with the frog .. just magic .. you have some wonderful photos to remember him by and i'm sure some amazing memories .. <3
