It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I write to tell you that Casey was diagnosed with canine osteosarcoma (i.e., bone cancer) last Saturday. As all of you know, Casey is like a child to us and she has brought great happiness and joy to our lives for the past thirteen and a half years. Her prognosis isn’t known at this time but we are seeking consultation from specialists this week as we have with all her past ailments. In our hearts we hope that we can prolong her life with treatment but realize that this type of cancer can be extremely aggressive and that we may be faced with very difficult decisions in the near future. Casey’s quality of life has always been of the utmost important to us and our goal is to preserve that for as long as we can and for as long as she will allow us. Thus far, Casey seems oblivious to her diagnosis, as it should be, and she doesn’t appear to be in any pain, thankfully. Please keep her in your thoughts and we will do our best to update you on her condition.
