      RIP My Boy, MILO 3.5.08-10.27.2015

      Most of you probably read my recent post about my boy Milo and his broken leg that had to be amputated (I just posted an entry on that thread so it should be showing in news feed)
      ***
      Long story short, last month or so, Milo developed a bad cough/hack/dry heave. Been in constant communication with the vet and we decided to go conservative and put him on antibiotics and watch him, hoping it would get better
      **
      Cough would appear to be getting better, then some nights would just hit like a ton of bricks. Tuesday morning (October 27) was one of those night, & he started hacking up blood for the first time.
      ***
      Knew something was wrong, even texted a friend of mine saying "I think my dog is dying"
      **
      Went to the vet and he throws up blood in the waiting room. Dr with a look of concern states we need to get an XRAY of his chest. 3 minutes later they call me back to review the XRAY film and the DR didn't even have to point to the areas where the cancer was, He was covered in the stuff & past the point of any intervention. We decided it was best to go spend the day with him and bring him back later that night to humanly put him down.
      ***
      When I get to the vet the entire staff is in tears, literally everyone working. You could feel the sorrow in the air. It was so thick. Several employees told me Milo was their favorite of all the dogs that come through there and truly one of a kind. They gave him anesthesia and he fell asleep in my arms, not scared and completely at peace. Once he was asleep I slipped out and they gave him the final shot. Last night was one of the most challenging experiences of my life
      ****
      RIP My Boy. Milo 3.5.08 - 10.27.2015

      PS-spoiled him compeltely rotten yesterday, here is my fav pic from our trip to the beach (and his first trip as a tri-paw ! )

      Oh, I'm so sad to read this! I was just thinking of Milo on Monday and wondering how he was doing but I wasn't near my computer. My sincere condolences and hugs to you. Rest easy Milo. Run free and run fast.
