Romarne Hayley

6.5.06 - 16.3.11

My Beautiful Girl

Two weeks ago, Hayley woke up with a limp, i thought she had pulled a muscle in her shoulder, i put her in a sof-crate and limited her exercise thinking it would heal. After 8 days the limp became worse so i took her for an x-ray. On looking at the results the vet thought he could see a shading on the bone. After more x-rays and a scan it was decided to do a biopsy, 5 days later the results showed that my dear Hayley had an aggressive osteosarcoma that was malignant. Due to the severe extent of the tumour and the pain she was in i took the decision to have her put to sleep. It is hard to believe how quickly this has happened, as she had had no lameness at all prior to the onset. She is now buried in the orchard and at peace. Sadly missed by everyone xx
