    Default Looking for any advice or info

    I found out last night that my best friend was diagnosed with Epitheliotropic Cutaneous Lymphoma. We are waiting to meet with the oncologist to discuss treatment. In the mean time any info would be useful and greatly appreciated. Sophie, my best friend, happens to be an English Bulldog. She is a sassy, strong 50lb. 7 year old. My world has been turned upside down. My heart breaks.

    I'm sorry I don't have any experience or information for this, but just want to say how sorry I am that you are going through this with your baby. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

    To be honest it is not a good thing , they will give steroids to slow the progress ,but that I know of there is no cure. My heart breaks for you and yours and I am again in tears as i write this note .
    Make all the time you can for Sophie change things up do some stuff that you guys have never done before , have a banana split together on a bench, get lots of pics , talk and share stuff .
    I am so very sorry to be morbid but I feel it is better to be honest , I looked for every way to stop it i could find including experimental and there was nothing there for Tilly , she and I never gave up .

    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
