At 12 years old, Spunky was a little slower and stiffer but still seemed to be a rather healthy dog. But then, one morning, Spunky didn’t eat his breakfast.
Ashley Niels, Spunky’s mom, said she knew something was wrong. The veterinarian gave the family the sad news.
Spunky had hemangiosarcoma, a kind of cancer that chemotherapy and surgery couldn’t help.
Spunky was bleeding internally and would need to be put to sleep. Niels made the appointment for the following evening.
