SG Kyra v Frolich Haus Sch3, IPO3, WH, KKL CD CGC

With great sadness, we got the call on Friday....my always effervescent, always 'up', always a PIA with her own agenda, always happy, smiling and full of life, my first schutzhund dog, Kyra, was confirmed to have hemangioscarcoma...........

She has been living with friends for a couple of years where she never has to be in a crate, sleeps on their bed with them, goes to summer camp and plays with all teh kids on summer weekends...has had a great time with them. I visit often, and she is happy to see me, but loves her dad, Phil. Mom, Pat, is just crazy about her - Kyra can do NO wrong - even when she leaps onto the dining room table to watch the neighbors cat on the lawn!

She was bloated looking and not real comfortable at Thanksgiving - I was concerned - 4 vets have seen her since September - and no one even thought about a tumor.....she was in teh ER bleeding out on Tuesday afternoon...after talking to the vets and each other, and visiting a sedated but still tail wagging Kyra, Pat and I decided to at least let them look and see....

Friday was the definitive answer when the biopsy reports came back.....4 - maybe 6 months left for our happy smiling girl........



I spent the afternoon with her yesterday and she is back to normal except for the gazillion staples from from chest to groin - a little tired, but her spirit is strong.....spare a little prayer to help her (and us) through the next 4 months or so....

I have to find the Thanksgiving pictures with Kyra and her granddaughter Bengal - my new puppy....

Thanks....

I am so sorry Lee. Simply treasure each minute you get to spend with her.

A Beautiful girl. A Special Dog. I hope what time she has left is peaceful and painfree as possible.

Lee, I am truly so very sorry. She has enjoyed a life of adventure, love, and fun. You've done so well by her, as has her new family. Such a very loved girl. May her remaining time here be comfortable for her. Wishing her, you, and her family the very best.

I am so sorry, she is a beautiful dog. It is a terrible disease, it takes them at their peak.

I went through this with my BoBo recently. The outlook is bad, without chemo it can be weeks to 1-2 months. With chemo it is 3-6 months, BoBo got 4 after surgery. We did chemo at UPenn and he sailed through it. We had wonderful extra time together. The chemo itself was not very expensive, the test cost more.

This is his thread fyi, it documents our time from diagnosis, through chemo and the last four months.

A life well lived is the treasure we can give to our dogs and you had been fantastic for her. When her day comes, she'll have had a fullfilled life thanks to you.
