Brittni I’m so so very sorry about Kali. She’s a beautiful girl. My situation was similar to yours. My girls were bottle fed litter mates and Tankie died at 10 from renal failure. She was the strong one, the leader and her sister was just as lost as I was. Two weeks after she died we found 2 more tumors on her sisters spleen. Her sister is Browns, she needed surgery. Not an emergency surgery like Kali but the tumors could rupture so it was needed soon. Browns is the kind of dog that’s needs another dog. We are all she’s known since birth but she needed a canine companion to bring her out of her depression because they wouldn’t operate while she was mourning so deeply. I got her a rescue puppy. Brittni she hates other dogs, always has. But it worked. She had the surgery about 3 weeks after we got the pup.
Getting this lil guy drew her out of herself. We’ve had him a little over a year and it’s all good. We did the extra walks and showered her with love but some dogs just need one of their own to feel complete. I know this is one if not the hardest things you’ve been through and I know what a good person you are because in the midst of your grief you’re thinking of your other one first❣️ Big hugs for you both,,,,,
Lynn, Tankie’s mom, forever
