R.I.P. Cutter
Well my worst nightmare just came true, at 3:50 PST today I had to put Cutter to sleep, to say I am devastated would be an understatement I literally cried like a baby and if I thought there was any decent chance to save him, I would of done it in a heartbeat. Cutter always so healthy and strong his whole life was ravaged by Cancer and internal bleeding.

Just yesterday he was running around at dogpark, took him this morning, he looked a little off but when we got there all he did was lay down, he never lays down at dogpark. I took him to my local vet and after a series of tests he told me Cutter was bleeding internally showed me the syringe of blood taken from his abdomen and told me he has Cancer also and he needed a specialist.

Took him to the best specialist in the state Animal Specialty Group and they confirmed he was internally bleeding and was riddled with Cancer which I never picked up on, here on day gone the next, it was that fast.
They said they could try a $10K surgery, the money not a problem but they said it would be a 66% chance of recovery and of that 66% chance of relapse.

When they brought him in to see me he was panting like crazy, he was literally blowing up from the inside out. As much as I wanted to save him I could see the pain he was in and wouldn't make it through the night, it was at that point I decided to do the humane thing to my almost 9 year old companion, goodbye Cutter over the Rainbow bridge you go dear friend, I'll really miss you.
Cherish what you have everyday you'll never know when they'll be gone.

RIP Cutter! Sorry you lost him. Sounds like hermangiosarcoma, it took two of mine.

I'm so sorry for your loss. :( You definitely did right by your boy. My parent's golden had the same thing happen nearly a year ago, and sadly he passed away 3 days after surgery. The guilt I carry for convincing my parents to try still cuts deep. We hadn't lost a dog who made it through surgery in a very long time.

RIP Cutter
