Callie, rest in peace baby

This past Wednesday at 5 pm, Callie took her last breath, in our arms on the kitchen floor. She was almost 12 years old. I miss her deeply. She was my baby and I love her more than anything. One year ago, our girl had a 12.5 lb tumor removed that was attached to her spleen. We were able to enjoy her for one more year after that surgery (splenectomy). She was our miracle dog and we have our very special vet to thank for saving Callie's life back then. However, this time, there was nothing anyone could do. It all happened so fast. A tumor had grown above her eye on her forehead and it was cancerous. Very aggressive. From the initial diagnosis, she lived one week. She went relatively quickly so I only hope and pray that my girl didn't know what was going on. I am very thankful that I was with her telling her how much I love her and how she is the best dog ever. Her quality of life was very good all the way up until a couple of hours before she left us. Is there anyone else that their GSD had a tumor above their eye? I am trying to understand how this happened to Callie.
And I am so deeply sad and emotional. Thanks for all the support and stories on this forum.

So sorry for your loss but I'm glad you could be with her at the end. Everyone should be so blessed to leave this world in the arms of family.

I am so sorry for your loss... I hope my own dogs will pass at home, with me and my husband... it's the best way for them to pass, in my opinion. Keep that thought in your heart.
