I didn't want to say it really but I decided to share my loss. Yesterday my boxer dog died. He was 7 years and 9 months old, relatively young still. He was doing fine but all of a sudden stopped eating and started coughing blood. We took him to the hospital on the 31st where they did a number of tests and said he was losing blood and had an enlarged spleen. They couldn't tell whether there was anything else wrong with him but said they had to remove his spleen. When they opened him up for surgery they found a huge tumor in his stomach that caused all the problems and the doctor advised us that it would be best to put him to sleep right during the surgery since a long term recovery from this was virtually impossible.

I knew he was getting old but really didn't expect him to go this suddenly and this young. He was the best dog I could possibly have and I will never forget him. Just wanted to share my thoughts. Thanks.
