    • I don't want to hijack Jakes thread , for the folks who passed along their condolences for Izzy in it , I appreciate it ….. Izzy passed away last Friday , she had a great life here with her sister Jojo , never separated a day in their lives until her sister passed away a month ago ……both were "momma's" dogs , guess they're all back together , waiting on the rest of us …… cancer closed a really good chapter in my life in 2018 ………… feels like 2018 been a lifetime in itself , and it's only august …….. circle of life ……….

    Your girls are absolutely beautiful!
    I'm so sorry for your loss. I pray it doesn't weigh so heavily on her sister but I'm sure the loss for her is devastating ,as it is for you. I can tell your dogs are well cared for, and I'm sure she lived a great life. My condolences for u and your family.

    Marke, I am so sorry for your loss. 2018 has been a horrible year for you (and me too). I am just at a loss for words, they were such beautiful girls and you can tell how much they were loved.

    I am so sorry. They were beautiful girls. I have lost 2 girls to cancer. 1 bone & the other skin. I have a 15 year old Pittie with skin cancer. She is too old to treat. I decided to try the controversial CBD oil. I am giving her the high dose (4 -5 drops 2X day). I am being told her death will be a sudden 1. So, every day I smuther her with hugs and kisses. She puts her head up in the air as if to say Mom stop, your driving me crazy. Since the diagnosis about 10 months ago she started the oil. I also apply it directly to the lesions. They have stopped bleeding and she appears to be more alert. She has even joined me on a couple of short hikes. She is jumping on the futon as well as the bed. I don't have anything thing else to attribute it to. I get it from innovet pet and it is $85.00 per bottle. I know it is not hurting her and if can help her with Quality of life, I'm in. I know it won't cure the cancer but just maybe it is making her feel good.

    I feel your pain and I KNOW how bad it hurts.
    Take Care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    best I did with the bleeding was hydrogen peroxide and flour ….. I tried every coagulant they sold …it seemed to ebb and flow no matter what I did …. when she started bleeding from her mouth there was no stopping it , she lasted about a week …… she just got weaker and weaker , I imagine she was swallowing more blood than I was seeing …….. she did walk into the vets on her own , even wagged her tail , she was just weak and tired ……… hope your pit is able to go out happy ……….

    Marke, I wish I could help or say words that would comfort, a loss this extreme cannot be simply acknowledged and passed by, it grieves you deeply and it grieves me to know that you have suffered from this loss. We are all, our dogs...our time together is too short. And we are haunted by it, by the limitations and the what ifs and the absolute finality of it all. But, like Pastor Dave, I hold out the belief that when I close my eyes here, I will open them there to see all my loved ones...all my beloved pets and they will finally be able to tell me all the things I was unable to guess. I hold that hope out for you.
