The Grand Rapids Press reports that 9-year-old American bulldog Brittney was euthanized Tuesday at an animal hospital.

Owner Scott Seymore said Brittney woke him up early Saturday when a fire started in his home in Grand Rapids. 

The fire came two weeks after a veterinarian discovered the dog had several cancerous tumors. 

The vet said the dog might not survive surgery and Seymore believed chemotherapy would be too hard on Brittney.  

He decided to let Brittney live, with medication for pain. But since the fire Brittney’s growing misery changed his mind.  

Seymore says it was “really depressing.”  

As we all know, it is part for the cycle of life, but it doesn’t make it any easier!
