We had to put Lilly down.

Lilly was our Akita mix. We loved her very much. She became sick and aggressive. Found out she had a large brain tumor. Close to the size of a marble. We did the best thing for her by ending the suffering. That was the worst feeling in the world having to make the call to have her put to sleep.

We've had a hard few weeks couping with this, but it was the best thing for her. We didn't want her suffering any longer. We still think about her everyday and miss her terribly.

Run free Lilly. You are home now. We love you....

Re: We had to put Lilly down.

I am sorry for your loss. I am sure Lilly was acting aggressive only due to the tumor. You made the right but hard decision because you love her so much.

Run free of pain Lilly.

Re: We had to put Lilly down.

Oh, I'm so sorry.
It's never easy but when your not expecting it somehow it's twice as hard.
Thank you for having the courage to do the right thing by Lilly. It shows your true love by not wanting her to suffer.
RIP sweet girl
