Kolbee Dec.15,1996 - Jan.17,2008

Last night we took Kolbee back to the vet.  She was still not eating and her stomach was very swollen.  The vet took some X-rays and the news was bad.  Kolbee had fluid build-up in her chest and abdomen more than likely caused by heart and kidney failure.  They also found a large, fast growing tumour in her abdomen.  Today the decision was made to euthanize her; there was nothing more that could be done for her.  Poor girl.  I am sure she is up in doggy heaven, sitting in her favorite chair with her favorite yellow duck by her side.  We will miss her.


  1. oh kim, I'm so sorry.
