Saying Good-bye To Debug

I am devastated.

It’s the decision that no pet owner wants to make about their furry family member. But it is out of love and consideration that it must be made.

The vet has been treating Debug’s sores as an allergic reaction. A test showed that she was allergic to beef and milk. But nothing seemed to help; so last week, we did a biopsy. The lab reported “squamous cell carcinoma.”

Although the large growth on Debug’s neck would be fairly easy to remove, the vet also wants to remove the sore spot by her lip. The skin is so thin there that that would entail removing the lip and surrounding cheek completely. I cannot bear that.

This week, I am spoiling her as much as I possibly can. The treats that she was previously denied due to the allergy are back. I’m doling them out frequently. We cuddle as much as she wants to cuddle.

On Friday afternoon, I will have to say my final good-bye to my baby.
