---------" We canceled our winter vacation to stay with home him after the diagnosis, and to be able to put the money toward his treatment. Having the extra time to be home and enjoy him in what turned out to be his last week was a blessing--we had lots and lots of time snuggling. I'm so glad we had that time home, off work, to spend with him! "-------------
Bless you for doing that---------I'm sure Simon loved your attention and devotion.
But look what YOU gained. You will never forget that week as long as you live.

Thanks, all. They get old far, far too fast. Cancer in dogs absolutely sucks. We lost the last one to hemangio, three years ago. As I get older, they seem to get older faster.

|Nikitta||We ALL have had to make this heart rendering decision with this breed or any breed. It never gets any easier but it is still the right decision. I HOPE I see them in the afterlife if there is one. They deserve to be there so much more then I ever will.|

"I promised him when the cancer was diagnosed that I wouldn't let him suffer, so I had to keep the promise and let him go -- even though I'm not ready to live in a world without him in it. He was hurting, so we had to make the hard decision to say goodbye. He died very peacefully, surrounded by love."
My heart goes out to you and I applaud your selflessness....ohhhhhh it's ever so tough but you can at least go forward knowing that as difficult as it was, you lived up to your promise bred out of love and commitment for your boy Simon. Your situation makes me so very sad and reminds me of my tears when I was in your shoes but it also reminds of such a fine quality which some humans possess and your love for Simon is a prime example.
