I thought I'd give you the update: After a thorough exam at the vet, my mother reports that Skipper (my four legged kid) has a tumor over his kidney and because of the advancement of the toxins, it's inoperable. They have scheduled him to be put to sleep Saturday morning.

Damnit D, I'm sorry to hear the bad news. Why can't pets live as long as us! :whiner:

Just a few weeks ago we found out our 5 year old lab had an infected uterus 4 times the size of normal and filled with toxins/puss. Luckily they did emergency surgery and were able to remove it before it burst but it was a very scary time for us. Hang in there, D! Maybe in the future you can get a new 4-legged kid.

I'm sorry to hear about that Diane. I really hate to hear this kind of thing. Dogs can be the best companion ever and they never live long enough. :(

Sorry Diane, we lost our puppy this past summer and it was ruff. That's the hard part of having a pet but the good times are well worth it.

I'm sorry to hear that Diane.  I was just thinking about your kid yesterday afternoon, and hoping things would turn out ok.

I'm very sorry to hear that, losing a pet is very tough.. Godspeed Skipper! He'll be waiting to give you a big sloppy kiss on the other side.

Sorry Diane, that's always difficult. Been there and for some reason chose to put myself in the same situation again some day.
