you just never know

when sickness can hit your beloved pet. i took Daisy to the vet tonight, and she has a very large fatty tumor inside her back left leg. funny how i never noticed it before, but if you turn her over onto her back, there is the gigantic lump. the vet says the tumor it needs to be removed before it causes problems with urination, damages the sciatic nerve that runs down the back of her leg, or just becomes so bad that she has to have her leg amputated. now, i don't know how many other pet owners would put their dog through the pain, suffering and partial loss of independance that comes from the amputation of a limb, but i would never do that to Daisy. i hate to play God, but i prefer to remember her as "my little girl". sure changes the perspective of things, considering the idiocy from this minor nuisance off the Internet. The nuisance isn't really worth talking about. I'll let you decide :)
