This is my precious Daizy that I suddenly lost to Hermangiosarcoma 6/24/2016. She gave me 11 years of love. She was an ambassador for her breed. Everyone fell in love with her as soon as they met her even if they were scared or didn't like pitbulls. She changed their minds quickly with her goofy smile.
I rescued Daizy from a high kill shelter on the day she was scheduled to be euthanized. She was going to be put up for adoption along with the other dogs I had pulled from the shelter that day. Daizy had other plans. She wormed her way into my heart and became a wonderful addition to my pack fur family.
4 years ago I noticed a strange red dot on her belly. Within a few weeks time it had tripled in size. I took her to the vet to have it removed and tested. It came back as Hermangiosarcoma. A very aggressive cancer. X-rays were done and it hadn't spread through her body. Over the years I had several more red dots pop up on her belly, and repeated the same process. I really stayed on top of removing spots, bloodwork, and x-rays. I went on vacation June 18th with everything great. I get a call June 24th that Daizy had not eaten in several days and was lethargic. She was taken to the vet where I recieve the devastating news that her organs were shutting down due to several masses on her spleen, liver, etc. I had to make the heartbreaking decision to end her pain without me holding her, telling her how much I loved her, and she will be in no more pain ever. I didn't get to tell her I'll see you again one day. Just less than 2 months prior to her death she had a full check up at the vet and was in great shape. I can't believe after 4 years since diagnosis the cancer decided to ravage her body so quickly. I'm grateful it was quick and she didn't have to have a long battle with ups and downs like so many pet cancer stories I have heard. She was full of herself and happy until just a few days before her death. Thank you for reading my story of Daizy.
