I'm Not Crying, I've Just Got Some Dog Love Stuck in My Eye

Zoe started vomiting last weekend. I took her to the vet Tuesday and they gave her antibiotics and anti-nausea medication. She did very well until Thursday night when she started vomiting again. It has gotten progressively worse since then. She was up all night heaving, so I took her back to the vet this morning. They asked me if I wanted to run tests or just have her put down. I started to cry and said I wanted to make sure that it wasn't just something stuck in her throat or something. So they took xrays, which showed nothing and ran some blood work, which we are still waiting for the results. I never thought I would feel this way about a stupid animal (shut up Chad). I am devastated. I have slept with this dog almost every night for the past 12 years. I am going to ignore everything I have to do today, snuggle with my dog and wait for the vet to call me with the test results.
