    Your both in my thoughts.

    When my Ginger had cancer I was just a mess. She had tumors that popped up and she was just fine till the very end. We removed them until it was just to much for her and I think it was a steroid she was on as well and we did know when. It was me who could not take it. Vet discussed taking her for chemo but said with her being so upbeat and doing ok removing them and with her age it was not likely worth it. She was fifteen or over at that time.

    When it was all over I felt I had put her through something horrible and that we should have just put her down in the beginning. But I know I would not give up the last couple months I had with her for anything.

    Thank you all so much. The hugs and kind words really do help.

    We're not doing chemo. I've been back and forth between hysterical crying and just completely numb, but am starting to have moments of being able to think and am now planning what I can do with him to make the time left as great as possible.

    You know whats best for you and your dog. ((Hugs))

    I know its just the worst feeling. You just have to know that what you are doing is the best thing.

    I took tons of pics of ginger,I could kick myself for not taking more of her when she was younger. ended up loosing most of those when my comp crashed but I got some nice frames and have those in front of her ashes along with her collar that sits in front of them.

    I wish I remembered what she was on but she was fine right up until the day we put her down. Vet gave us pain meds but said only use them if we had to as they had more side effects and we never did until that last day. Hope it goes the same way for you.

    So unbelievably sorry about this. Losing Brody to lymphoma in April was the hardest and most traumatic thing that has happened in my life. I'm glad you know and have time to spend with him and plan I did not have that chance. I will cry everyday for the rest of my life. It's very hard and both of you will be in my prayers
