Yesterday, I lost my English Toy Spaniel Duchess to cancer. She had a black tumor in her mouth. I don't knw why this happened to her. She was very old, but very strong. Many people thought she was 2 years old. She really lived to be 27 years old!I kept that healthy to live that long. I don't think I'll get a dog like her again. She was very old, but my only family. Still, I love her very much and she meant lots to me. She would have been here now. I wanted her to be put to sleep so she died peacefully.
