    Sarah died yesterday afternoon. The vet diagnosed her with lung cancer three weeks ago.

    Friday morning she seemed to be doing very well – well enough that she brought me her hedgehog to toss down the hall for her to fetch.

    I was supposed to be at a relative’s funeral in Tucson last night, but just as I was walking out the door for the drive down, Sarah coughed up a huge clot of blood and started wheezing badly.

    I drove her to the vet’s office, where she walked in his front door, lay down on his doormat, and stopped breathing. They tried to intubate, but she had too much blood in her lungs to do anything.

    The vet says she didn’t feel much pain, if any. And she at least got a final car ride. She loved riding in the car.

    At least it was quick and she didn’t seem to suffer much. Sorry about your loss. 🙁

    I’m so sorry. She was a beautiful dog, and that’s a lovely photo of her.

    i’m so sorry for your loss.

    there are no words that can convey my feelings but please be assured that i’ve known this pain and it will retreat to a dull throbbing in time.

    Thanks, everyone.

    There’s a bit more of a “memorial” kind of thing out on my Myspace page.

    Dammit…I have something in my eyes, now….

    So so sad, caradoc. You guys gave both of them a wonderful home.

    The vet’s office called a little while ago, and Sarah’s ashes are ready to be picked up.

    Katie seems to be adjusting:
