Saying goodbye to a companion dog is one of the hardest things guardians have to go through. Just like with our human friends, it’s always shocking to hear that your furry pal is in poor health, even if they’re in their senior years. When Ashley Niels noticed that her usually voracious pup was hardly eating, she made an appointment with the vet. After running some tests, the doctor informed Ashley that Spunky, her 12-year-old husky, actually was suffering from hemangiosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that was causing the pup to bleed internally. It was then that Ashley had to make one of the hardest decisions of her life – to put her energetic pup out of his destined misery. She made an appointment with the vet to bring Spunky in the next day and have him put to sleep.
