I'm so sorry! I just went through a cancer scare with my dog so I know how frightened you must be! Have you gone to a canine Oncologist? I would really make an appt. and go on what they say rather than a regular vet. Good luck and I"m sending good positive healing thoughts and vibes to Butler.

We had to put Butler down last weekend. It was a hard decision but the right one, though I'm having a hard time dealing with the fact that this has happened in the first place. I'm still in a state of shock -- not doing any of the things I need to be doing, nor even checking out my favorite internet sites (this is the first one I've come to, actually). My daughter (who is 16) is devastated. Thanks for all the kind words, thoughts and prayers.

sorry to hear your sad new Lynn. At least he was loved and cared for by all the members of his pack, but it is so difficult to come to terms with.

So sorry to learn about Butler, MLE. It's so sad when a beloved pet dies, I can't bear the thought.

Thanks, everyone. This has been a horrible few weeks -- finding out Butler had cancer, the quick decline and, finally, making the decision to do what we had to do. We are slowly recovering but it's hard -- our dogs are members of the family and this has been heartbreaking. The fact that it's Christmas and everything should be "merry and bright" just makes it worse. But we will get through this and, in the not too distant future, some other, very lucky, homeless dog will hit the jackpot.
