My Labrador Retriever has Leukemia
by Mary Ellen
My beautiful 9 year old Chocolate Labrador Retriever was just diagnosed with leukemia.
My husband and I are devestated.
He has been the best dog we have ever owned. Just 2 weeks ago he was full of energy with no sign of an illness. It is heartbreaking to see him so sick and nothing we can do to help him. He has been put on medication to help him feel comfortable until his time comes to say goodbye.
We will miss our beloved dog very much. We are very fortunate to have him with us for his short 9 years and we will cherish all the memories from the time he was a puppy until he passes and even after he leaves us he never will be forgotten.
My other lab Sadie (she is seven) has grown up with Coco since she was a puppy, and she already senses something is wrong. She also will be empty without him for sure.
Thank you for allowing me to share my story.
