Really sad news... :(

30 posts in this topic

Today is my 45th birthday and my dog went to the vet.

And she has bone cancer.

She's only 6years old and we have to put her down in a few months.

If you ever see a guy and a 15year old with a golden retriever laying down in the boat that's us.

Really sad news to find...

We just had to put down our Golden Ret. a month ago due to cancer-he had it in his snout. He was only 7 so we feel your pain and we are very sorry to you and your family.

I feel for you and your family PK, the one thing to never forget though is that you will ALWAYS have those memories of you and your dog in the boat... cancer can never take that away! I wish you the best.

Dont forget to take pictures of your dog. Happy pictures I mean...

I have had a few different dogs now, and I cherish the photos that I have. They bring back the good memories. I have also lost dogs early. (hit by car) Only to find I have only one or two pics of that animal.

Sorry for you and your family. Hunt her hard this fall, make some good memories......

Sorry to hear that PK. Our dog is 12 now with one eye and a bad back from being kicked by a horse. So far she's okay but the time is coming.

I had to put down my English pointer 6 years ago. A part of me went with the dog and it was a very hard thing to do. It was the best for the dog as I could not deal with him suffering though.

The memories of the days afield with him still are cherished every fall.

Always tough news to hear for anyone. Hoping for the best here.

Dogs have that amazing capacity to give. The few dogs I've owned would instantly forgive you if you went away for a week, or kenneled them. They just wanted to get back to being part of your life. Since they really do become part of your family, it just makes it so hard.

I second the pictures idea. In fact when we go back and look at some of our home videos, we see some footage when our current dog was only 2-3 years old. She clearly had a ton of energy and that's fun to see as well!

PK, I'm very sorry to hear of your situation, Goldens are fantastic dogs. Until you've actually have had one you will never know what a great family dog they are. I've had three so I really do understand.

I pray It turns out for the best, HTB

Sorry to hear...Sad news indeed!

I had to put my dog down a few years ago due to cancer and it was by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do. My dog lost control of his rear legs because of a tumor or something pressing on his spine. I had him in for the exam and he was sedated for it...after the diagnosis was made, since he was already half under, I decided to have him put to sleep on the spot. I hate myself for it still to this day! I really wish I would have waited and looked at every other option before deciding to put him to sleep.

If I ever have to go through this again (I have 2 dogs now), I will spend what ever money is necessary to take care of the problem if possible...If it's not possible what so ever to fix, I'll do what has to be done.

I guess what I'm trying to tell you, is to make sure it's what you want to do before doing it...because there's no going back after the decision is made...I live with my decision every day, and I'll probably always regret it...My dog wasn't really in pain though, as far as we could tell. SO circumstances might be different.

I'll pray for you.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I had to part with my dog of 15 years a few months ago. One of the toughest things I've done....+1 for the photo's. I still pull mine out often to remember the good times.

It has been said already, but I am sorry as well. As a police officer, I have had the unfortunate task of telling family members, on several occasions, that their child has been killed. I also have told family members that their dog has been run over. As a pet owner, honestly, I had just as hard of a time telling people about their dog. They truly are a part of one's family. I still dream of my two best pals from when I was a kid, it makes me really believe that we will meet again.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
