My sister's dog, Katie, had to be put down today because she was very sick (most likely pancreatic cancer). My mom was the one who had to take her to the vet. Sucks.
Then I inadvertently click on Yahoo News. Apparently, Luciano Pavarotti has also kicked the bucket. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070906/ap_on_en_mu/pavarotti
Pancreatic cancer takes dog and unbelievable tenor. Makes my heart hurt.
