Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    I lost My wonderful Tilly to this at just turned 4 years of age .
    we did not go with chemo , they went with steroid injections , the prognosis was not good from the start, it spread to all nodes quickly and i had to send her on her way to the rainbow bridge . Like George she was very much part of My life a wonderful friendly Bully , I still miss her something terrible . That last 4 months i spent every single minute with her and her with Me . The vets office closed the office the day we planned for as they also loved her as much as Me there was not a dry eye in the place they were truly wonderful to us , we had a wake after she went to the rainbow bridge which helped Me so very much, it took months for Me to get over her passing truly. I went threw every kind of grief know to man , from the breeder forward to looking into how many Bulldogs get cancer , I was not fun to be around .
    I had been a member here for ages and came here with my so deep a grief for Tilly , the support I received here from so many people was beyond words and i mean the people here were wonderful.
    App 6- 8 months later i decided to get another Bulldog , a pup 8 weeks old . Now I had 4 dogs after loosing Tilly a Cane Corso , Siberian Husky, Malamute lab mix, and Diva all saves , Diva was a 11 year old Bulldog that came to our home from a bad situation 4 years previous she also came with Breast Cancer which we dealt with and was given a clean bill of health after app 6 months of treatment again steroid treatments. We picked up our new Bully Rosie and brought her home Diva who missed Tilly as much as I did turned into Mother Hubbard she acted as her MuM in every-way, it turned out to be the best thing i ever did for Me and Diva and the others in the pack .
    Diva passed from breast cancer app 8 months later she was 12 years old , Rosie is now just over a year fit as a fiddle and full of Pee and Vinegar.
    I am sorry this is happening and I understand this is not the most supportive of reply,s I am sorry, but for Me it is what I went threw and thought you should be aware ,It is a very tough Cancer to cure .
    My prayers are with you and George and your family .
    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.

    I am so sorry. I have not had a dog with it but my cat was diagnosed at age 4. There was a large tumor on her neck, we got it removed and started steroids. We opted not to go the chemo route because the prognosis was so slim. Unfortunately she went down hill very fast and we lost her a year later. Praying for you both!

    I'm sorry to hear about George having to deal with this, he is young and strong though so that is in his favor. I've been a dog person my whole life but this breed is something special, my EBD pup is 6 months old and he already has a place in my heart. Stay positive and I'll be hoping for a full recovery for your little man.
