I'm so very sorry. I lost 3 dogs to cancer over 45 years. It's a terrible diagnosis to hear. Hugs to you and your sweet boy.

I am curious how they came to the diagnosis of the cancer as a biopsy is the way to totally confirm the cancer It is rare in dogs and symptoms can be the same as pancreatitis . I am not sure with such a diagnosis a second opinion maybe warranted

When my Phoenix crashed again with the kidney failure, I was in shock, too.

After my vet's first diagnosis that she wouldn't live 'til Thanksgiving in November 2018 (2 weeks), she came back from the ashes and made him a liar (in his words). After that, he said she would probably live a year. Since she had defied his first diagnosis, I hopefully thought she might live many more years.

When she crashed 10 months later, I hoped again she would come back. The symptoms were different now. My vet said she would let me know when it was time to let her go. He is such a wonderful vet.

I took her to my vet on that last Friday. He ran bloodwork and said her creatinine levels had climbed more and that she might live a week or so more. But he said she wasn't in pain. I was so worried about that. I didn't want her to suffer.

I told him she had enjoyed her walk the day before at Beck Lake Park. Beck Lake was her favorite place in the whole world where she could be off leash and run as fast as she could and splash in the water. He said keep doing what you're doing. She will tell you.

She let me know six days later. Thinking about this, it still makes me cry. She was the best dog. My sweet baby girl. I got lucky in the fact that most people have a once in a lifetime best dog. I've had two -- My Phoenix and my little Pippi who is a part of this diabetic dog group. I feel so blessed.

Thank you all for your support...

We brought Mochi home yesterday from the emergency and we told ourselves that if mochi would eat a bit we will keep him until he's ready to go..
He came home happy and started looking for his ball..then he willingly and a little bowl of chicken. We were so happy...but it didn't last long..he went to sleep and didn't even want to move..when dinner time came he didn't want any food.

The vet called me back and said they ran another blood work on Mochi and said everything is progressing really fast..his liver is beyond damaged and he will start turning yellow and not want to eat even more..
We booked an appointment with a vet to come over and put him to sleep at home so he is more comfortable.
Thank you everyone...this forum really saved me and mochi when he was diagnosed...im just truly hurt that he has to go with such a aggressive cancer.. my other dog passed last year with another aggressive cancer and my grandma just passed with a aggressive cancer in the summer too.. it is truly unfair..

I'm going to have a super hard time adjusting...I never thought mochi would be getting pancreatitic cancer

I've always loved your darling picture of Mochi. It sounds like he had as good of a last night as he could. Ate a little, cuddled a little. I know the suddenness makes it so much worse. thinking of you Judi
