Oh Lin I am so sorry! I do agree it sounds like Hemangio, which is very hard to catch early. I lost a dog to this too and it was very fast. Tessa is in a good place and she knows she was loved.

|pyratemom||I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how much you must have loved her. She passed in her sleep most likely and was without pain. She knew you loved her, of that I'm sure. One day on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge she will be waiting for you. In the meantime, take care, take time to grieve your loss as much as you need to. It's harder now so close to the holidays when everyone else is happy but maybe you could make a special ornament for her to remember her life. I'm glad you were able to do the cremation. I still have Pyrate's ashes in the box, next to my chair, and when my husband isn't looking sometimes I sit with the box in my lap and think of Pyrate. I have a small box of his baby teeth and a tuft of his hair and that helps me to touch him again. He will always own a piece of my heart as I'm sure your girl will. Sometimes there just isn't anything we can do but grieve and move on. Take your time. Everyone grieves differently. Hugs to you during this tough time.|

|readaboutdogs||I'm so sorry for your loss of Tessa. I'm glad you were able to have the cremation, it gives me comfort that I have Cody and Clipper inside with me. I think that you put down a cushion and blanket for her was showing how much you were still concerned for her comfort, and your love for her. I know mine were my "bridge" in this old world, even though it's been nearly a year and a half since I lost Cody, I still can still cry buckets for him. Take care.|

|Stosh||I'm so sorry you lost her. There aren't enough tears. I know you'll always wonder what you could have done but you did the best thing for her- you loved her and gave her a wonderful life. All dogs should be so lucky.|

I'm so sorry to hear about Tessa. I cried when I read your post, it reminded me of losing Bianca's last year. It does sound like it could have been hemangiosarcoma. Most times by the time a dog shows symptoms of hemangiosarcoma, it is already advanced or spread and many dogs show no obvious symptoms so please don't think you failed her. Even if it is diagnosed it is often too late to do much.
If you need someone to talk to remember we are here, I know it can be hard when there isn't anyone near you who really understands the difficulty of losing a dog. If you want to also please feel free to PM me too.

|BowWowMeow||I'm so sorry, Lin. Same thing happened with two of my dogs and it was hemangiosarcoma. Very sudden and shocking especially with my Basu who was fine and then not.|

|dogfaeries||I'm so sorry, Lin, about your Tessa. I didn't want to open up this thread and read it. I lost my dobe Tessa 4 years ago, to what was probably hemangiosarcoma. Same thing. I'm so sorry.|
