My 12-yr-old Golden Retriever is sick. He’s too weak to leave his bed. Shows no interest eating or drinking –and he’s always been a little treat whore. Will sometimes take ice chips but only when hand fed. The vet reported that it is either poison or liver cancer. Seems wrong to be hoping for the poison.

His system should be able to kick the poison eventually, depending on what it was that he ate. If cancer … well, if cancer … we’ll think about that … later.

And now we wait.
