Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, prayers and hugs.... Unfortunately, Dr. Marin with OSU emailed me today confirming that there is definitely a malignant tumor. She sent articles and information that helped affirm my decision to keep BeBe comfortable for however long it is until her quality of life and happiness decline to a level I call suffering. She is so young and such a happy dog, I just want to scream why her, but that won't solve anything. If any of you disagree with my decision, so be it, but here is not the place to voice that opinion, all I would like here are positive thoughts for Bebe. We have vowed to take daily pictures until she is no longer herself, and thats when we'll know it's time. We've done this once before with Strider, albeit he didn't have osteo, but some sort of nasal cancer. We don't know how we'll get through it, but we will, for her. It breaks my heart to know her last birthday with us is two weeks away on April 6th, her 5th. This SUCKS!

The best way to handle this, is what is best for you and your hound. That is what we did with Max was diagnosed.

Oh no! Kim, that's just sooooo sad...my heart goes out to you and your family. Your Mom knew Bebe needed to come home with her last year, and I know she's as spoiled and loved as any greyhound could be. Hang in there, and if you need anything you know where to find me.

I am so sad and sorry to read this. She is so young. Make a memory each day that you can treasure.

I do hate cancer. It is the thief who robs us, everyday, of those we love.

I am so very, very sorry. I know how hard this diagnosis is. It's just devastating and to add her young age to that-it's just beyond awful. Sending you many, many hugs.

I'm so sorry that Bebe is having to face this at such a young age -- she's just a baby. :( I'm especially so sad that you and your Mom won't be able to enjoy the many years you'd hoped you'd have with Bebe as she grew older. It's just not fair.

 

I can't think of anyone who would ever question your decision. The only person(s) who can decide which road to take is the person who best knows her pup. Your love for Bebe has led you to do what you think is right for her. I can think of senior hounds who would have been good candidates for aggressive treatment, as well as young dogs who, for one reason or another, would not have tolerated it. Trust your (and Mom's) judgment, because you've made it from the heart.
