    My sister's beloved golden doodle was diagnosed with cancer today. It is aggressive and treatment would only cause him more discomfort and the probable amputation of his front leg. They have decided to give him as much time as possible in a happy home. Please send some good thoughts to my family. He is one of the sweetest dogs on the planet. We are devastated. The vet had thought it was just a fatty tumor. The cancer was hiding in the center of the other tumor.

    TIA,

    Kim

    All the best thoughts headed out. Bless them for making such a hard decision--I think I would do the same thing. Letting them go when its time is the most selfless, loving thing we can do.

    My brother in law just called. Tucker died at the vet tonight. He's at the Rainbow Bridge. Thanks for your thoughts.

    My heart goes out to them, I hope the dog is as comfortable as can be. Cancer is a miserable disease.

    I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.

    I read the first post last night before turning in and had planned on sending a reply this morning, hoping that you all would have some time remaining to enjoy life together.

    I'm also sorry for your loss! I actually came on today to escape my own doggie situation for a few minutes. My dog (11.5 year old lab mix) was diagnosed with lymphoma several weeks ago. I have been trying to decide when is the right time and, sadly, it was evident this morning that she is no longer enjoying things like she should. After work today, my plan is to take her to be put to sleep. I am aching with guilt. Literally aching!!

    I hope you and your family can find some peace in knowing that Tucker isn't suffering now. And thank you for sharing your story and reminding me that this grief is happening to others and that I'm not alone. :hug:

    :hug: I am so sorry for your loss. DH and I do not have children and our four-legged children mean the world to us--lossing one is crushing. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts. He was a good boy. Now he can rip up all the stuffed toys he can get his paws on at the Rainbow Bridge. He never met a stuffed toy he didn't love to destuff. The squeaker inside was his prize.
