Today is a very hard day.
Angus is my last surviving family dog. He turns 11 on Saturday.
We took him to the vet after I noticed an enlargement of his belly and a lack of luster of his fur. He is still the same happy Angus albeit he tires so much quicker. But then he is an old dog now.

The vet got him tested and scanned and they found almost his entire body riddled with cancer. It must've started in his spleen as the tumor there is the largest. I am devastated. The vet is surprised he hasn't been showing signs of being in pain. I love this dog sooo much and I can't bear to lose him. I just can't.

I took this video this morning:

He has no idea he is 12 and sick…. You have given him a fantastic life and he has enriched yours.

so very sorry to hear he is ill, sending you all big hugs and prayers. This is heartbreaking to read, but to see him still loving life if even for a few minutes is a testament to you and how you have given him great love

Very sorry to hear this.
When the time comes, the hardest thing you will ever do[for him] will be to let him go before he's in unmanageable pain. It will also be the KINDEST thing you will ever do for him.
The right time will be determined by loss of interest in eating, very low activity, inability to get comfortable.
Until then all you can do is love him all you can for what time he has left.

I took this video this morning:

Our Bulldog, Winston, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Tumor on back left foot Dec 2019. Nothing vet could do except refer to oncologist, start radiation and/or chemotherapy. Well, it was week before Christmas and vet going out of town, so being a Prayer Warrior, I first prayed and rebuked the cancer, then I did my research. Found someone who treated their pet with Curcumin Tumeric and had total recovery; so I ordered some from Mercola.com and started Winston on it immediately, then continued to research and put him on CDB. Needless to say when I took him back to same vet in Jan he was so surprised that Winston had not been put down yet. Let me just say, today, as a a 10 year old, he is thriving and playing.
