    Dasher has cancer

    Yes. I'm losing another dog to cancer. It just doesn't seem fair. He's got a big lump in his mouth near his throat. Eventually he won't be able to eat or breathe. It's tearing me up. He's already having a little trouble eating. I'm going to buy a blender so I can blend up chicken, broth and rice for him. He's got weeks or maybe months to live. Right now he's his normal happy self, which is a blessing. I would love it if he could see another snow. He loves it so much. My heart is just crushed right now.

    Oh Val, I am so sorry. I am in tears right now reading this.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Awww, you and he will be in our prayers that he remain his happy self as long as possible.

    And think of it this way: If not for you, he surely would have died years ago, without the veterinary care, attention and love you gave him when first you rescued him. So all his happy years (as it turns out) with you have been a bonus for him!

    Val, I am so sorry to read this news. I'm sure it is a shock for you as well.

    Dasher, though, has no clue. He is living in the moment, as doggies do, and loving his time with you. Make the most of this time you have with him.

    And what Karen said; she said it so well, much better than I could. He was one lucky boy to be adopted by you! Keep on building memories.

    See how it goes. For him to get a balanced diet, you may also want to add some kibble to the broth and blend that. I know dogs have to get certain vitamins and minerals, and no idea if he will get everything he needs with chicken, rice and broth.

    Sending prayers for Dasher and for you.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!
