This is our beautiful Roxy. She turned 10 on December 30th 2009. She has been fighting Anal Sac Adenocarcinoma.
She under went a rough surgery, her recovery was tough, but she struggled through. The tumor was removed, we enjoyed our holidays with her, right after her birthday, 3 months after her surgery she stopped eating again. The vet has just confirmed the cancer has metastases into her lymph nodes and stomach.
We have brought her home for now…she is my 16 year old daughters best friend. She has brought my daughter through everything from skinned knees to broken hearts.
Each day I pray that I will see a sign as to when to make the decision. We are losing part of our family, how do you make that choice…
My daughter and I will be by her side and hold her until the end. She has been so brave with her fight we need her to know we are with her, that is the least we can do for her.
She has given so much to us. Unconditional love.
For now, we smile at her, kiss her, look into those sweet big brown eyes, and nuzzle our noses into her warm fur and inhale a smell we hope to never forget….
