Fuck that's terrible. I'm so sorry. When I lose a pet it rips me to shreds. Which is why I let my cats feast on my blood every night.
Sorry. Nothing funny about this. I'm really sorry.
My dog (actually, the dog lives with my mother these days, for protection and whatnot) appears to have lymphoma. Not sure what we're going to do about it yet. Pool our money and treat her or let nature talents course? Heartbreaking.
Also.. you can afford an in-house vet? Fuck you.
