    I posted a few weeks ago when I found an aggressive mast cell tumor on my chocolate lab Lena's back leg. I had the tumor removed, and by the time we went to have her stitches removed, three more tumors had erupted, including a baseball-sized one in her abdomen.
    Last week I made the appointment and got pain killers to keep her comfortable until this morning.
    She was happy and frisky all week, not having any idea how sick she was.
    She passed away peacefully this morning at 11:20 as I rubbed her sweet ears and kissed her muzzle.
    Heaven got a great dog today.
    I miss her already.

    This always brings tears to my eyes. Animals give so much and ask for so little.

    Sorry for your puppie.

    We lost our beloved collie about 20 yrs ago to cancer.

    We received a call at 1am from the vet who had opened her
    up and said that she was full of cancer.

    He offered us the option of bringing her home on pain
    killers. I declined and had her put down.

    It was one of the hardest decisions that I had to make,
    but I think that it was the right one.

    I'm very sorry for your loss.....I've been there and understand.

    So sorry to hear that. My dog was a fighter to the end as well. I think he hung on for me. Yours is now eating all the bacon she wants and running around in dog heaven.

    My biggest mistake was waiting five years to get another one. I had forgotten all the happiness and joy they can bring you. Take some time, and then go your local humane society. You'll not only help yourself, but an animal in need as well. It's a win-win.

    Stay strong.

    Sorry for your loss, I know what you're going thru. I am not sure if they call them Chocolate Labs for their color or because they are so sweet.

    I'm sorry for you loss. Losing beloved pets is never easy.

    We lost one to cancer a few years ago. We caught it early but it was in the bone of a hind leg. An amputation and chemo gave the dog a painless 18 months and we spoiled her rotten.

    When the cancer got to her lungs we knew it was her time.
