Hemangiosarcoma: a word I may have heard before but one I've never fully cognized... one word from the vet and that all changed. A high probability points towards that cancer after finding a mass in her spleen and spots on her liver. That was two weeks ago... In the last two weeks I've cried, we've visited many vets, I've spent hours researching this cancer and possible treatment options, ordered Chinese herbs and supplements to help mitigate the bleeding, I've cooked her meals of chicken and elk and beef and liver and anything else I could get my hands on, we've walked multiple miles everyday through the snow (You would never know she's sick, and has been for some time... I could hardly keep up with her as she bounded through the knee deep powder!), and I slept on the ground beside her every night.
Yesterday was one of the hardest "see you soon's" I've ever experienced and, to top it off, she was in emergency surgery before I had landed at my destination. She's incredibly strong and resilient but right now she's fighting through post surgery and I feel terribly that I cannot be by her side.
I love this dog more than words can describe and am pulling for her to make it through these next few days without complications, and I'm crossing my fingers for the results to come back negative.

I find that getting outside is not just a desire, but rather a necessity...
