UPDATE 07-19-2010—

My dog, Toka, was part Australian Cattle Dog/German Shepard. She grew up in Rhode Island, and lived a happy & healthy life. She was my best friend. Practically my daughter. She was always there for me. She would be playful, protective, and would never leave my side when going through many traumatic experiences in my youth.

Unfortunately, just before her 11th birthday, she was diagnosed with Anemia, Cancer, and tumors. We learned of this news from a different vet, as ours was practically worthless. Refused to believe there was anything wrong with her. They also didn’t see a reason to examine her blood work. The new vet broke the devastating news to us; and two days later…I lost one of my best friends. She truly touched my soul and I miss her so much! No one, no animal, should have to suffer this way. Ever. I hope that a cure can be found someday soon.
