Tonka isn't doing well.
Two weeks ago, the doctors at the specialty center said that there wasn't anything more they could do for her.
She's not responded to her (cancer) treatments, and she hasn't eaten in 3 days.
The vet is coming this evening to the house put her down.
I can't tell you how grateful I am that you (wow-over a year ago) noticed she wasn't feeling well.
If it weren't for you stepping up and telling me - I wouldn't have had this additional time with her.
You - better than anyone - know how important they are to me...so I just really appreciate everything you've done.
The last minute changes in plans, the additional stops, the pick-ups at the hospital, all of those things.
You've been fantastic and I couldn't ask for more.
