Momo left our home for Dog Heaven. She was assisted on her journey with a wonderful young asian-american veterinarian from www.homepeteuthanasia.com. Momo almost had 12 wonderful years living with my family until an inoperable Mast Cell tumor ravaged her body. Her last minutes with us were precious as she made friends with the Vet and received numerous loving strokes of her body from me. After a calming sedative injection, Momo dozed off on her bed. Then the Vet inserted a venous catheter port into her front leg and 2 medications were given to take her away from this world. The Doctor and I carried Momo to a van in our driveway and I finally lost my composure when I hugged the Doctor and thanked her for helping Momo pass in such a serene and loving way.
It was fitting to learn that Momo's ashes would be spread at sea off Huntington Beach, where Momo had spent good times at the HB Dog Beach.
