Hello and sorry to see your note, I as others have wish you the best of luck- I might be in the minority here but in my situation I think I made the correct choice at the time. My lab was nine and we found a bump which the vet first dismissed as a fatty tumor which is very common. I asked for confirmation and it came back as mass cell- he was nine at the time, healthy and happy, nine for me was a little too early.

I went over to UC Davis and their team provided an experience that bettered any visit I have had with a physician or health care facility. In sum we found five different tumors and a mass on his right small toe. In this case it was not attached to any organs. operation was lengthy and they felt like they got good margins and removed the toe..

It was several weeks before he bounced back to more or less normal. I decided one surgery and no chemo or other intervention. He now 13 and getting lame but I am appreciative of the additional time, fun and adventures. I do not have the typical burdens of most, that is to say I have no kids or a wife so the finical contribution to UC Davis was within my budget and with hindsight a worthy investment. Not sure if I will get another dog after he passes- the rational side of me says it will be far to quiet in the house not to..
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

She did so well up until today. Fought a great fight, and we had lots of quality time as a family.

We knew the day would come. And while it's so hard to let go, it was the right thing. I'll miss you girl. Love you. Thanks for picking me. Always in our hearts. Dogspeed Magnolia Mae. 9/30/06 - 9/2/16

Pour a sip, fellas. And thanks to all who knew, and supported me through this.

Really hate hearing this. Treasure the great memories. They last longer than the sorrow.
