I am so happy to find this forum, my heart is broken in a million pieces after the sudden loss of my dear Buddie yesterday. This following the death of our other golden Annie in May. Our Annie was 13 and had been diagnosed with mast cell cancer for three years with a large tumor on her leg that could not be removed due to its location without amputation. We were told she may only have 6 months to a year with us so when the time came in May to say goodbye we were at peace with our decision and knew we gave her the best life possible for the last three years. Our Buddie was only 9, he also had a mast cell tumor diagnosis at the young age of three but the tumor was removed and we hoped for a long and happy life for him. On Friday night he went to sleep like usual and in the middle of the night made a very distressing yelp and was gone. I am devastated. Annie was the family dog who loved us all but Buddie was my shadow and was always by my side. I am sick with grief over his sudden loss and wonder if there was anything we should have noticed. The vet suspects it was a tumor on his spleen that burst but I worry that he suffered or felt pain. I realize that losing a cherished pet is never easy but the grief I am feeling over the loss of both our beloved pets within 6 months is very difficult and even more unbearable to lose one suddenly.
