Been lurking, time to introduce
Hello everyone, my name is Leanna. I have been lurking since Dec.07, when our beloved Tango was diagnosed with cancer. I came across this site and found it very helpful not only with labs, but with all types of breeds. We lost our big boy 2-13-08, originally they thought it was osteosarcoma, but in his final days and with going back through his medical records they changed his diagnosis to Hemangiosarcoma. From amputation and 3 rounds of chemo, we only had about 2 1/2 months with him after dx. He has left a big whole in our hearts, but he passed peacefully at home, with his mommy holding him looking into his eyes, and daddy holding his paw, he was surrounded by the people who loved him the most. We miss him something terrible and there is not a day that goes by that he doesn't visit our thoughts.
I look forward to being a member here as we just adopted another lab who was found roaming the streets of a small town. We will bring him home on 3-7-08. I will post pics of him as well as my other 2 rescued fur-babies!!
For every animal that dies in a shelter, there is someone, somewhere responsible for its death.
