Sukita Sapphire

Today was a hard day, one of the hardest I have ever faced in my 26 years. I had to put my dog to sleep. She developed Lymphnoma (spelling) a cancer of the lymph nodes. Today at the vet they gave her (Suka - a dog I have had since she was a puppy - 1992) one week to live. My mom and I decided to make the decision to put her to sleep. No cure for the disease in dogs, only prolong the suffering. I was told this was the right thing to do by the vet who was crying with my mother. I could not stay in the room. I had to leave, but I hugged my beloved Suka one last time, and told her to be a good dog in heaven. I miss you Suka. May you rest in peace.
