Hey Texas! I am so heartbroken for you. Kasey looks like such a sweet dog. I have an australian shepherd. They are such "lovers". And you're right, they never complain. My Cassie had a "growth" on her behind, so we took her to A & M to see what they could do. That turned out to just be a benign tumor that they removed, but found a breast tumor while there. They were able to remove it too. At least they showed me how to check our dogs breast. It was about the size of a BB. I would have never known what it was or worried about it.

Blessing to you.

Unfortunately, when Kasey's lump was noticed, it was too late to do anything but make her as comfortable as we could. We could not afford chemo treatments when it wouldn't get rid of it only prolong her life and I just couldn't do that to her. I watched my mom go through it, it's very hard on the patient. I never knew that dogs could get breast cancer. She lived for only 2 months after that. The vet said that it goes really fast in dogs. I know now to check my other dogs often.

Texas, Since your mom went through it too, that's makes it even harder on you. I'm glad you know how to check for it now. My dogs love for me to rub their tummies anyway. Now I just check everything while I'm there. We were lucky that they found hers while it was so small. I don't know if I could have handled seeing her suffer throught it. I have a hard time every time I lose a pet. I have a lot of wonderful memories and so will you. Take that picture and frame it. Put it on the shelf with your family!

Thank you kadesma! I'm very grateful that I stumbled onto this place and found all of you! I think I'll go to be now, I'm a little tired and I'll be getting up to make a few things for tomorrow.
Again, Thanks to everyone here, I'm glad that I have you all to talk to everyday! Goodnight.

Texas.......
You know how much I love my little Dove ..and I know someday I will be right where you are. Heartbroken over the loss of a beloved pet. Before her My Yorkie was 17 (eight years ago and I still cry over him. He is in my backyard)

Bless you for loving animals like I do.

Special Day

Every day that one of my friends have left have been a special day for me. Each and every one of them were so different and unique. I love my furry friends and just knowing Kasey left on her own without any special attention from vet gives me a feeling of being grateful she was were she wanted to be when she left. Everybody wants to be home when they don't feel well and feeling the love you all gave her was security she appreciated. Please accept my sympathy to both you and your special family. Allow yourselves time to grieve and know you will see her again. That is my sincere hope that all the dogs that have given so much to me all my life will be reunited again. I remember the first dog when I was only 7 and crying walking down the street and my brother's girlfriend told me I would see my dog again. To this day, I have believed that because I want to. It states in my bible that God returned to earth on a horse ,so if he rode a horse goes to show you there are animals where he is. This is only my belief and not meant to harm anyone but gives me hope. I share this feeling with my friends, knowing I only mean well. Animals have such a big part of my life. Always received lots of love from them. thanks for your time.
