On Wednesday we brought our dog to the vet to check out of there was something stuck in his throat. He had been having a little trouble eating so we thought we would get it checked out. After the vet put him under to see what the problem was she found some really bad news. Chinook had a very large, aggressive and inoperable tumor growing in his throat. She said it was so bad that he would only last a few more days and the kindest thing to do would be to let him go. We had to make a very tough decision and will miss our furry family member terribly.
I am surprised at how much Chinook's untimely passing (He was only middle age and we expected to share another 6-8 years with him) threw off my schedule and my healthy lifestyle. I took the family out to eat because I didn't want to cook and we needed a distraction. Exercise went out the window for two days and I overate (hmmm- maybe I do some emotional eating!) It has taken a few days, but today I am close to being back on track.
Missing our buddy and saddened by our loss.
