Been going thru a pile of tests. He has bone cancer in his front leg and a spot on his shoulder. Had him at the vet college , it’s a fairly treatable type. Myeloma. 2x radiation and chemo pills. It’s breaking my heart. He’s been the best dog I’ve had and has seen me thru some shitty days. Hoping for the best for him.

here...there
I ve had a few good friends pass, some sooner than they should have.
It's the cycle of life... When they get sick hurts the most as you are almost always left with decisions that you don t wanna take.
Hope he pulls through

Testing seemed like it took forever. Had the start of a limp 4 weeks ago. They said to keep him still for a while maybe he stained it. 10 days later I took him back and they X-ray it. They saw the shadow. 10 more days of testing! I guess that’s not so bad , takes longer than that for results on ppl.

is overrated
Cancer is a cruel mind fuck of an illness.

I hope things get under control quickly and your buddy heals up completely.

Dogs are so loyal and wonderful... My rottie had cancer throughout his bones, they caught it late as they thought it was age and dysplasia.

Haven't had another dog since. For all those years of happiness, that one moment of pain, outweighs it all.

I don't know if I'll ever do it again.

Squid, i think the trick is to have more than one at a time...

Tutto spent enough time with Lucky to pick up two habits that make me smile every day.

Lucky was a hunting dog and walked with her nose to the ground all the time and would spread her scent around with her back legs vigorously after a pee...

Tutto does both

i can't imagine life without a dog... take a stroll to a nice shelter and make a friend

After my first dog died it was 11 years until I got another, I know how that feels.

Give him a big kiss on the snout from me!!!

I waited to post these yet again.

Honestly know what you're going through and that there's nothing we wouldn't do for our best friends.

Thank you....I didn't want to make this about Lucky and me, but I wanted you to know I'm thinking about your boy and I know all the feelings.

Dogs>people!!!
