    So, my LGD has not been acting herself for the last few days and today she was really "off". We took her to the vet and she has a massive internal infection. She is on her way to emergency surgery right now. Please pray that she is OK. Sugar is a wonderful loving dog and a fabulous protector of her goats. She was working just last night against a pack of coyotes. I don't know what I'll do if we lose her! Thanks, everyone!

    Just got a call from the vet. She's still in surgery but holding her own. Turns out what they thought was a massive infection was really a 12 POUND mass on her spleen. They've taken out her spleen and sent the mass off for a biopsy to see if it's cancer or not. Thank you for all your prayers. I know they are making a difference for Sugar!

    I'm so sorry Erin. It will be hard to get use to Sugar not being there. To get through times like this it helps me to focus on all the other animals.

    I'm so sorry for your loss of Sugar. :( It sounds like her last moments were doing what she loved to do, protecting her goats.

    I'm so sorry about your girl, it sounds like she didn't suffer a lot, so bless her heart, she is at peace. You did good and minimized her suffering.

    Thanks, everybody. She is definitely at rest in greener pastures. We have two of her pups still here and the little girl is just so much like her. At least I still have a part of her here. She is definitely missed!

    My condolences on your loss of Sugar. :rose: May you find some comfort in knowing she lives on via her pups. Are you keeping both of them?
