He made it through Christmas. Were there any symptoms?

I'm sorry for your loss. He was a handsome boy.

No symptoms. He has been eating well and his poops have been good. It has been really cold here, and he hadn't been interested in spending much time outside.

This afternoon he stood up , vomited a whole bunch of blood and then just kind of stood there. There was so much blood.

We called the vet and had him in the car and on the way within a few minutes. His abdomen was filled with blood. The ultrasound showed a mass on his liver, that is where the blood was coming from. The tumor had burst.

We lost our Jackson four and a half years ago to hemangiosarcoma. He collapsed and died right in front of our eyes. I never want to see another animal go through that. And I knew that I didn't want to run the risk of Tanner dying like that tomorrow or next week. The vet said he had a very poor prognosis. We let him go.

I'm very sorry to hear this Sheilah. It's very sad and there should not be so many health problems in this or any other breed. My best to you. Andy

That's really sad. One of my puppy-buyers lost their boy a few days before Christmas. He died on the way to the vet. They did not do a necropsy, but hemangio, or aneurism sounds most likely. This is a terrible time to lose a pet, though there really isn't a good time. It is truly the toughest part about owning these magnificent creatures.
