My sweet Daisy went to heaven on Friday.

Daisy was diagnosed with histiocytic sarcoma Friday and was so very tired. My vet recommended a transfer to the Purdue Veterinary Teaching Hospital Thursday as she could not control Daisy’s anemia. After multiple transfusions, an ultrasound found several masses in her spleen and in her chest. The prognosis for this type of cancer is very grave with less than 20% of dogs surviving chemo, only to live 1-3 months longer.

Some of my friends offered a donation to help with Daisy‘s medical expenses ($2500). If you’re also interested in helping, I’m accepting donations via paypal.

If you want to help more dogs, please consider a donation to the Illinois Birddog Rescue. Lisa and Christine provided a tremendous amount of support to me last week.

I know that the grieving process takes time but I miss her terribly. She was a good girl and did not deserve this. Doodle Bug, I love you.

“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.” ~ Cheryl Zuccaro

  1. Just stumbled across your post and wanted to let you know how sorry I am for the loss of your pet – even if I AM more of a cat person. 🙂 I know how much your dogs mean to you, and how hard this must be. Sending hugs your way….
