Some sad news from Durango.

Our 14 year-old setter, Quinn, has suffered with hemangiosarcoma for the past few months, had a major bleed yesterday with very pale gums and discomfort, a rough night last night and was barely conscious and unable to stand or walk this morning.

We took her to the vet to put her out of her suffering.

Aw,maaan! Very sorry, Steve, for your loss. My sincere condolences, and prayers your way. Been there, done that, as you probably know, and I really feel yall's pain.

Well . . .

Our 9-year-old setter, Panda, has been off her feed.
Took her to the vet. She did an ultrasound. Found a tumor on her spleen.

Most likely: hemangiosarcoma, just like Quinn.

We're considering treatment options but it doesn't look good.
Both Quinn and Panda came from the same breeding.

Doesn't seem fair somehow, but nobody is ever promised fair.
Just hope she has some good days left and doesn't suffer when the end comes.

Update on Panda: She is going in for a splenectomy and tumor biopsy on Wednesday.

If it's a hemangioma, she should be in good shape after the surgery.
If it's hemangiosarcoma, not so much.

She seems to know - photographed her this morning:

Yes. We're spoiling her rotten.

Cry like a baby. We can't bring him with us, so some friends here on the mission base are going to keep him until we come back.

I dropped my dog, Max, off with some friends who are going to take care of him this next year while we are in the States. I managed to hold it together until I got home. Then...not so much.

An awful lot of hard partings.
And a lot else.
