I might be going through exactly the same thing you are Rob.  We took Cora in for emergency exploratory surgery today because an x-ray showed a mass on her spleen.  If it's benign, they'll remove the spleen and she'll live for a long while.  If it's malignant, they give her 1 - 3 months, and if it's spread to other organs they will euthanize her on the operating table today.

I may have said goodbye to my dog for the last time this morning.

Sorry to hear that Matt, I really hope it's benign and you get some good news.  Let us know what happens.

So sorry to hear about your loss Rob, and we'll keep you in our prayers as well Matt. We lost our dog of fourteen and a half years, two years ago this summer, and it is still difficult. We had a cancer situation as well, which makes it tough when you are considering their quality of life and everything. Thinking of both of you.

Very sorry to hear about Emerson, Rob.  Things like this are never easy because our pets are part of our families.  They're there for us all the time, from the time we wake until we go to sleep at night.  And they even watch out for us when we sleep.  And because of that we need to give them our time as we grieve their passing.   So give them your time. 

Sorry to hear about your dog, too, Matt.  I hope she's okay.

Awful news, Rob and Matt, and I'm sorry to hear it. I feel like you made the best choice though, Rob, since it sounds like her last few months were rough.

Turns out I was cancer in her intestines and spleen.  At least we were there to say goodbye.

Rob, I can't tell you how so sorry I am. I cannot imagine how hard it was having to go through that twice in such a short time period. Matt - was really hoping for better news. So sorry about Cora.

We lost our 13 year old pug Trixie on Friday.  :'(

She would have been 14 in October, was still going strong, albeit less active the past few years. It happened while we were on vacation with the whole family too. Huge bummer, but still the same time thankful she was with us and not locked up in a kennel several hundred miles away.

The kids were really sad at first but seem to have bounced back quickly, bless 'em. The wife and I are still pretty broken up about it though, we got her shortly after we moved in together and she was there for our wedding, two daughters, and survived two major surgeries along the way, including the emergency removal of her gallbladder. (We are still paying for that one)

Happy we got to enjoy her for as long as we did, trying to focus on that and not the end. Also helps we still have another dog Howie we rescued a couple of years back who is still going strong.

But yeah, most upset I've ever been over losing a pet. Just a fixture in our lives suddenly gone...

RIP girl.  :(
