At 2PM today, Rocky succumbed to an aggressive form of Cancer of the Lungs. He was the best boy ever and I love him so much.
A supplement to Saturday; Thank you to everyone that has posted, sent a direct email, or mail. Your words are so very comforting.
In summary, Friday morning I took Rocky one of his two favorite places to go - Seneca Hill Animal Hospital. He so loved to go there - they treated him like their own. There they recognized what was going on. We transferred Rocky to SouthPaws Referral and Emergency Center where he stayed the night. By the next morning, he was in further distress and rapidly deteriorating. I was with him to the end as he crossed the rainbow bridge around 2pm EST.
