      Monday...

      It seems like just yesterday that my mom was telling me to get in the car and to bring a blanket. I was so confused but followed her instructions. We ended up at the breeder's house and I was picking out my boy, HammerHead. 7 years later and I'm losing him so soon. I have made the decision to have Hammer put down on Monday. I can't stand to see him suffer anymore. This is the first time I have ever had to make this decision on my own, without the advisement of my parents. A month or two ago Hammer was diagnosed with lymphoma. The vet thought we had caught it relatively early but it turned out to be extremely aggressive. The weight loss was extensive, he is completely blind, and it's not fair to make him suffer any longer. I'll probably disappear from the board again for quite awhile but I'm sure I'll be back in a year or two asking for advice with a new pup.

      Thank you all for everything you have done for me in the past 7 years. Hammer and I have been through a lot together and it's going to be so hard coming home to an empty house after Monday. I guess this is goodbye for now...

      I'm so sorry, Hannah. You gave Hammer the best life he could have had and he knows you'd always be there for him...even when it means making the hardest decision. He feels secure and his comfort with you goes a long way toward making his pain and fear a bit easier.

      Sending you strength...you and Hammer will be in my thoughts tomorrow.
