It is with a very heavy heart that I write this. We took Buddy to the vet this morning to get an X-ray. It showed that he has a stomach tumor which has grown so much that it ruptured a bit of his intestines. The bloat that we've been worrying over is a result of the rupture: gasses and possibly liquids leaking into his abdomen.
Due to his age and poor health, anesthesia and thus surgery is not recommended.
Best Guy is on his way home from the vet now, with the Budster. We've taken tomorrow off and plan on showing him the best 24 hours he's ever had. At least, as much as he's willing to experience.
We are both heartbroken, but we don't want him suffering. We know this is the best choice for us all.
Even though he's only been in my life for a short time, he takes up a very large portion of my heart.
He's a Good Dog.
He's a very Good Dog.
