Nicole Austin – Scandalous

{March 15, 2008}   Sad Day

Today is a sad day in the Austin household. Snickers, not just a pet but a member of the family, had to be put to sleep today. He was only 8 1/2 years old.He’d been losing weight since Christmas and the past few weeks started acting strange. This week he acted like he had a virus and we’d decided to call the vet first thing Monday morning and take him in. When I got home from work this morning he was lying on the kitchen floor and couldn’t get up.

We had to roll him onto a blanket and carry him out to the car. On the xrays, the vet found a tumor that couldn’t be felt. They think its cancer and had spread through his body, including his brain, explaining the weird behavior. His lab work showed multiple organs were failing and he began having breathing problems. There wasn’t any way to combat everything going on with him and the vet said it would be best to put him down so he wasn’t suffering. Snickers was a member of the family, our beloved pet, and will be greatly missed.
