My Sweet "Tansy"
Born: March 17, 2004
Died: Nov.11,2010 "Acute Leukemia"
Breed: Australian Shepherd "Aussie"
She was my party girl... so much fun and full of life. I never expected her life to be so short. One blue eye and one brown, Blue merle. Sweet, loving, smart. My baby and partner. As a puppy she could entertain herself with a ball in her mouth and knock another around with her paws. Anyone who has ever come to our door didn't leave without throwing a ball or frisbee for her, that includes the UPS delivery. I picked the Aussie because of their longevity and agility.
We have a 10 year old black tri male and I wanted a female with his bloodline's. He is full of tumors and at age 7 he had surgery to have tumors removed. Our vet of 26 years said, this was only her 2nd case of "Acute Leukemia" and the first was 15 years ago. Why my dog? Can anyone tell me if they know of other Aussie's and Leukemia?
