Today I unexpectedly lost my beautiful dog Sammy. I came home to find her coughing up blood and it coming out of her nose on Thanksgiving. I rushed her to the emergency vet and she had cardiac arrest and I had to put her down there was no treatment option. Apparently she had undiagnosed lung and liver cancer that was missed despite regular checkups. They were only found today because the ER vet did an ultrasound. A tumor ruptured in her lungs causing the blood to come out of her nose and for her to not be able to breathe and cough. My heart is broken. Gone but never forgotten 2018-2006. RIP sweet girl I’ll always miss you and birding won’t be the same without you. This border collie x blue heeler loved birding with me she never chased a bird and helped me find nighthawks and other birds she would sit down and patiently watch them and never chase them. She was a real gem. She was my heart. I am completely heartbroken. I got her from the SPCA 12 years ago as a scared little puppy. I’ll miss her forever.
