Had to put my Beloved Daisy down
Diagnosed the last week of July, my Dog Daisy had Lymphoma cancer. It struck suddenly, and viciously, but Daisy was still full of piss and vinegar, so we decided to try for chemotherapy.
We were delighted, that she quickly reached remission, and seemed cancer free after only two months of chemo, but her remission lasted only six weeks. At the reappearance, which was aggressive, we decided for a last shot attempt at chemo. Given a dose two weeks ago, it appeared she had improved, her lymph nodes shrinking back by 70 percent. The following week, just after Thanksgiving, she was given an at home dose of chemotherapy...... but unfortunately, it did nothing, and the cancer started taking her over.
The decision was rough, but it was the correct one, as the cancer had taken over her liver, and her spleen, and had become chemo resistant. She was put down this morning, and was only six and a half years old.
I hate cancer. I really hate cancer.2 10 gallon tanks, 1 20 gallon tank, 1 Fluval Edge, 1 29 gallon tank, and one backyard pond.

I am very sorry for your lost. Dogs are all about their ppl, dedicating their lives to us. It is up to us to see that they get the best out of their time here. You're a good person for giving her the wonderful life she had.

I'm sorry for your loss.
We're probably going to have to put Chester down soon... He's got bad hip displasia and has a real hard time getting up now. Doesn't want to put any weight on his hind legs, and his back legs keep collapsing under him.

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

so very sorry about Daisy. We've been there too many times and it never gets easier. Just know you did such a very good thing for her by letting her go. Many hugs and also remember she had a wonderful life because of you.

I'm very sorry to hear about Daisy. It's so tough to lose a pet...and she was still so young!
But sometimes the right decisions are the hardest ones to make. You did the best thing you could for her.55 g Goldfish Tank - 3 Fancies, 2 Comets

Its rough. But most of today I have a strange overwhelming sense of relief. Makes me feel guilty for a second, until I realize, its perfectly normal to feel that way.2 10 gallon tanks, 1 20 gallon tank, 1 Fluval Edge, 1 29 gallon tank, and one backyard pond.

someone sent this to us when we lost our very special Brittany Spaniel. Somehow, it helps.
