As you know Sadie had a mammary tumour and over the last few weeks it grew in size which was causing her some discomfort. We took her to the vet last Monday and after she was examined we were told that the tumour was affecting Sadie's respiratory system and her heart rate was very shallow. We were given three options
- To operate to remove the tumour but the vet didn't think that Sadie would recover from it,
- Give her antibiotics and pain relief but this would not cure her only make her comfortable,
- To have her put to sleep.
Sadie will be sorely missed as she became an integral part of our family, not least by our other cocker, Charlie. Although we only had Sadie with us for a little over three years we have many fond memories of her, like the first time we took her to the beach and she followed Charlie into a rock pool not realising how deep the water was, well at least we found out she could swim!! and how excited she got when she saw the caravan pull up outside the house meaning another weekend away.
In time we would like to offer another cocker a forever home.
