That's so sad. Laurie.
Did they ever determine what was wrong?

I'm sorry for your loss.

The mass they found in his abdomen a month ago was not a hernia. It grew and in that short time 6 more popped up. The vet believes they were tumours and there was fluid in his lungs making breathing difficult. We knew we didn't have long but were trying to keep him comfortable with medication and were going to take him in but at least he went peacefully.

Thanks, Pac. I know you understand what we have been going through.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Laurie. I'm also glad Joie had a loving family and went peacefully. Take care.

So sorry for your loss, Laurie. It's so hard losing a family member.

(((Hugs))) Laurie. My sincere condolences. It's so sad having to say the final good bye to our furry friends. At least when they go at home the other furry friends understand what happened.

Laurie, I am sure Joie did not go alone. Violet was there at his side. She knew that her friend was very ill and stayed there with him to the very end. Joie is no longer in pain and is breathing the fresh air on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. Take comfort in knowing you did everything you could for him and he is very grateful.
