Our sweet Sophie is dying. She had a brush with cancer in January/Feb of this year (2008). She had a tumor that was over 2 lbs attached to her kidney. We had both removed (tumor and the affected kidney) on Feb 8. the surgeon was so hopeful- he saw NO signs of cancer anywhere else.

The results came in that it was a Renal Tube Carcinoma. A very aggressive cancer that doesn't respond well to Chemo. But again he and our main vet were hopeful... she recovered so quickly and was a completely different dog- She had life in her again!

Then in the 3rd week of July, she started slowing down. Seemed stiff when getting up from a down and when getting on and off the couch. I took her into the vet, praying it was just sore muscles but the films showed otherwise.

She has a LARGE mass in one lung. We didn't look anywhere else, the vet said there was no need. If it got THIS big in this amount of time it's very aggressive (which we knew this type was already) and that most likely it has spread all over already. All that's left to do is keep her comfy, love her, spoil her and wait until we see she is ready to go... then help her cross over to the bridge.

It's killing me. She's only 9 and still so vibrant. She's such a good dog, so eager to please. She watches after my sons. She is my shadow. I don't know how I will get through this.
