Goodbye to a Friend

Yesterday we had to put our dog, Tanner, to sleep. It was sudden and unexpected; we were supposed to take him home after his visit to the vet but that didn't happen. He started throwing up Thursday night so we took him to the vet on Friday. He had x-rays done which showed a blockage in his intestines and they referred us to an animal hospital to get whatever was in there removed. When we took him on Saturday to the animal hospital, they told us that he had lymphoma and that the blockage was a bunch of tumors. They gave us the option to put him through chemo and surgery but it was not guaranteed that the treatment would fix him. So we decided to put him down to end his suffering. He was always a happy and energetic dog, even in his last moments he was wagging his fluffy tail. I'll miss being greeted at the door every time I come home, but he's in a better place now.
