I hope everyone had a good weekend. It was pretty enough. We had a bad, bad weekend. Saturday morning I took Tanner to the vet because he didn't eat his breakfast that morning as well as the morning before, which is NOT like him. I noticed his stomach had become very distended & the points of his hips & spine started to show within days. I thought maybe he had a stomach bug & hoped the vet could prescribe meds for him. At worst I expected him to tell me his heart murmur had gotten worse & it was time for heart meds. The vet did Xrays on Tanner because he said he felt a mass in his abdomen. The mass turned out to be a tumor, malignant we assume because of how quickly Tanner went down hill. The tumor was on his liver & what appear from the Xrays also his spleen. There was nothing the vet could do at this point. The tumor had grown to the size of a grapefruit & Tanner was in a great deal of pain. At 12 noon he passed away in my arms. I am very sad he is gone but glad he's no longer in pain. We'll miss all his silly & quirky ways. He definitely wasn't a looker but he had the biggest heart & will be greatly missed.
