I am very sorry for your loss of Faith. She was beautiful. You did what is the best for her, I know it hurts a lot.
Run free, play hard, sleep softly sweet girl. You will be missed.

Well - I was hoping to never have to post in this thread, but today I find myself here. My parents' dog - Cooper - collapsed this morning and was rushed to University of Penn Vet ER.

He has internal bleeding and the ultrasound showed two masses on his spleen. They're taking him to surgery shortly. At this point, we won't know anything more until after the surgery when they can biopsy.

I feel sick to my stomach - I can't imagine a house without Cooper in it. He's supposed to be 12 on December 21.

Don't give up! My Joker, who is 12 years old, had an emergency splenectomy last July. X-rays showed a large mass on his spleen. The emergency clinic staff told me that he probably had hemangiosarcoma and they would know when they opened him up. I braced myself for the worst, but held to my conviction that he had a benign hematoma that had ruptured. In surgery, there was no evidence that any disease had spread, so the surgeon removed my boy's spleen and gave him the transfusions that he needed. When the surgeon called with the pathology report, it said "consistent with benign hematoma" - just as the results were for Joker's half-brother Charlie, who had a splenectomy at age 6. To quote the surgeon, we "hit the splenectomy jackpot twice!" Joker is doing well now. He has the aches and pains that come with his age, but his eyes are bright, his appetite is good, and the color in his gums and tongue is a lovely deep pink.

I hope and pray the same will be true for Cooper.

Hugs and prayers,
Lucy

Thanks - he's out of surgery and in recovery. Unfortunately they found nodes on his liver. We won't get the biopsy back until the middle of the week, but the doctor didn't sound hopeful that these tumors on his spleen would be benign.

I'm so sorry. Spreading tumors never bring good news. Please keep us posted.

Hugs and prayers,

Thanks everyone. He got out of ICU today and is resting. They said he can come home tomorrow. Once we have the biopsy my parents will decide what to do from there. I know they will do whatever it takes to do what is right for him. The surgeon mentioned the cost of the surgery, which was pretty high (he needed a blood transfusion) and my Dad didn't even blink. He just said to do it.

I just want to go home to my parents' house and hug him. Poor guy.
