This happened almost two weeks ago, but I've only now been able to really talk about it. Our dog, Paige, passed away just after midnight on January 9th, 2011. On January 8th, she wouldn't eat and just laid around all day. That night, Lori took her to the vet just to make sure everything was ok. When they examined her, they found that she was anemic and bleeding internally. Just one day prior, she had been fine, and playing outside in the snow with us. But the vet said that the kind of tumor she had can grow and grow undetected, and cause her no symptoms, and then suddenly cross a threshold where it starts to bleed. This has been very hard for all of us, because it was so sudden. I always thought that she would get old and sick before the end, and we'd have time to prepare for her passing. She's been a part of our family for so long, I am still not used to the idea that she is gone. We adopted Paige when we moved to Texas - until the kids were born, Paige WAS our family. She will be greatly missed.
