Diagnosed with Cancer ( The best dog and friend ever!) Missing her already!!!! (reposted)


My dog Ebony has been a part of my family for 13 years. She is a Pekingese. She weighs about 16 pounds at her highest weight. Therefore in human years she is only 75 years old. Supposely this is because of her small size. Last year, Ebony had surgery to remove a large thick lump off her ear. It was analyzed and determined that she has cancer. It is called Mast Cell. I can’t imagine her not in my life. The doctor said that radiation could possible prolong her life since she is in stage 2 out of 4 but that she should only live to twelve-years old anyway. So spending thousands in radiation treatment for a dog, whose lifeline is only to 12, doesn’t make a lot of financial sense. Right now she seems fine, but if she begins to suffer, we will have to make the hardest decision ever. This totally sucks for my family…

**New Note** Wednesday, June 9, my family and I will hold my dog's paw and caress her as the vet put her to sleep. Ebony has been diagnosed with mast and lymp cancer. She is too old and too sick to fight. Our hearts are heavy. Pray for us....

Oh Rose ... I'm so sorry. That's terrible news.

You know you have my sympathy. If it helps, in the days after Lionel finally had to be put down, I told myself over and over and over again that finally putting him down was the last act of a good mom. You'll know when it's time and you'll know what to do. It won't make it easier ~ and you'll do it.

Sorry about your dog.

My cat who is 12 was sick recently, but has recovered.

I tell you, a beloved pet that isn't healthy can certainly put things into perspective.

Pets really are a part of the family, and saying good-bye is never easy.

You're in my thoughts, Rose. And I've asked Lionel and Daisy to go find Ebony and show her where all the best sunny spots for little dogs are. I know that sounds corny for me but our four-legged family brings it out in me. You know my address if you need a shoulder.
