Today we said goodbye to one of our own.When Sadie arrived at the ARL back in May she had several cancerous tumors removed. The surgery went well and her recovery swift. Despite her sweet and gentle nature Sadie was often overlooked by potential adopters so staff got to know her very well. Her smile was contagious and she could always be counted on for a good cuddle session. Yesterday we noticed a large mass on her belly that had seemingly appeared overnight. Plans were made with the vet to remove and test it. This morning the mass had grown larger and Sadie was visibly uncomfortable. She was rushed back to the vet and our worst fears were confirmed. Her cancer was back. X-rays showed it had already metastasized to her lungs. In the few hours she was at the vet she spiked a fever and began to have trouble breathing. We had to make the heart wrenching decision to end Sadie’s suffering. We are all in shock at how rapidly she deteriorated and how quickly we had to say goodbye. Sadie was SO loved and we will forever miss our big beautiful girl. Rest easy Sadie ❤️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
