    So sorry for the news, It's never easy thinking about one of our loved ones leaving us, but she will always be in your heart. I love the pics especially the one where little G was kissing big sister. It's like she knows she does not feel well.. Please keep us posted.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    I just got the dreaded call from the vet. My B has cancer. I was some what prepared to hear this, but how do you really prepare.. My heart is breaking into a thousand pieces. I'd like to say this is the worst day I have ever had, but I know that day is coming soon - I have to do what is best for her. This is the most horrible decision I've ever had to make. I don't know how to say when it's time. She's herself in so many ways but I can tell it hurts her. I'm not sure how much of the pain is from the stitches in her mouth from the biopsy and how much she is just living with due to the tumor.

    First of all..take a deep breath. I have been right where you stand now. Except I had no warning ..our Rottie started limping one day and since she had a long history of back problems, I assumed this was another. I even took her to her acupuncturist and when limp persisted...THEN to our vet. They took X-rays and there it was..glaring at me..bone cancer. No treatment available and my vet just said..don't wait too long,her bone will break because the cancer eats from inside out and you do NOT want that to happen. I was shocked. I was devastated. We have a family friend that is a vet. I called her just for some honest truths. Yep..my vet was right. She could have 3 weeks or a year. I decided it was up to me to make sure Ana never hurt. Nothing could heal her or my broken heart. Since she was on pain meds for her back,I was stocked up on what I needed. I read and decided I would watch her like a hawk. This horrible disease would NOT make her suffer. I would lie awake at night listening to her breathe and worrying about "when". Just 3 short weeks later..Ana wouldn't get up. We knew it was time. She never cried or showed that she was hurting.
    After she had crossed the bridge, We realized just what a gift those short 3 weeks had been. We were able to just love her and make sure she knew how much she was loved. Many do not get that chance.

    The thing I guess I want you to hold on to is not the sorrow..but the love. Spend this time enveloping her with your family. She will be one of the lucky ones,surrounded by her family and most importantly loved all the way across the bridge. If I can help..I am here.

    My heart aches for you. I wish there was something I could say or do to ease your hurting heart. I had a full week with my Ace last January before that day and I treasure it and all the pictures I took, even the sad ones. Hold and love your guy much, it will stay with you for a lifetime.

    I am just so sorry ....

    My dear sweet Maggie was diagnosed with cancer ...lymphoma ... and within weeks she was gone from complications. May 31st 2012

    The first thing I decided is that I would not keep her here for us, I would focus fully on what she was feeling and when it was time for her to go then so be it. I knew that with todays medicine you can keep them going for longer and longer. But I wanted her to go when it was time and not prolong the agony.

    There is one thing I regret however. I wish I'd taken more photos and I wish I'd taken more videos .... because there can never be too many of those.

    The experience for me is still so very very very raw and painful. But because it's so maybe I can help in some way. So PM me any time you want to.

    I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone. Your kind words and thoughts have been very helpful. I had to take a few days to process through all of my thoughts and come to terms with everything. It's been about two months since I noticed my B wasn't feeling well. We went to the vet at the beginning of December because she was getting sick and losing weight. The vet put her on a bland diet and ran some blood tests. She told me we could do xrays as well because there still could be a growth that may not be detected by the blood tests. At that point, the symptoms B was having sent us in the direction of blood tests. The bland diet seemed to make her feel better and she stopped getting sick. I'm still not sure what caused that episode. I felt a sense of relief when the blood tests came back normal and she was acting like herself again. I could kick myself for not getting the xrays too. But I'm also glad that I didn't. I don't think it would've changed the results. It would have given me more time to deal with the prognosis, but then I wouldn't have enjoyed my time because I would've been to upset.
    Around 12/31 B stopped eating anything crunchy. She already seemed sad and withdrawn; I thought she was stressed out from a house full of people over the holidays. I made another appointment with the vet to have her teeth checked out. I know she told me at that time that there was a growth in the back of her mouth and an infection. She seemed to think it could be a tooth or gum problem. She suggested antibiotics and a follow up appointment in two weeks for a teeth cleaning and to remove the growth. After almost two weeks of antibiotics there were no changes in B’s behavior. I knew this was different.
    I’ve been trying hard to be positive, I don’t think my constant crying is stress reducing… I’ve watched her constantly for the last few days. Very drugged up and sad. Even with anti-inflammatory meds and pain pills she doesn’t seem interested in eating. The saddest part is, she is still hungry so she eats. My baby is in pain and so am I. Friday we stayed in bed all day and cuddled and yesterday we went to the lake. She had so much fun! Tomorrow we are going to see my exhusband (“daddy”) so he can say his goodbyes. I haven’t set a date yet, but I can’t stand to see her in pain. There is nothing I can do to make her better and I can’t watch her get worse just to have more time. This is the saddest I have ever been. I feel blessed to say that. Here are a few pictures of our time at the lake yesterday. -wp_20130119_010-jpg-wp_20130119_13_58_13_panorama-jpg-wp_20130119_015-jpg-wp_20130119_021-jpg-wp_20130119_025-jpg-wp_20130119_026-jpg
