Today is an extremely hard day! I lost Penny, our 12 year old basset hound today! She lost her battle with cancer. I rescued her and her sister when they were puppies. Their mother was a registered basset and the owner did not want these pups so we two of them. They were inseparable until Lucy's death a couple of years ago. Penny had been fighting cancer and a tumor finally ruptured ans started to rot. It couldn't be operated on because of the location. I had to make the decision this morning to let her go. I feel so guilty. I wanted her to just pass in her sleep. I hope now she is pain free and reunited with her sister this morning. Here is her dogster page with her pics and information. http://www.dogster.com/dogs/598953 I already miss her so much!
