I'm so sorry. We just lost my daughter's dog to cancer this week. Her cancer was different, so I'm not sure if I can give you good advice, but I can understand the hell of making a decision. For Daffney, the cancer was multiple hemangiomas on the liver and blood in her abdomen. It was already too late. The only thing we didn't know what when. Daffney felt fine for another three days, then faltered. During those four days, we gave her everything she'd ever wanted--love, filet mignon, doughnuts, love, chocolate, and the love of many family members and friends. She tried a lot of new things and saw a lot of her old people. It was all we could do and the best for her. My daughter and I talked about this an hour ago. She said, "I wish we'd known sooner. We could have taken her more places." If you do decide to go without surgery, or even if you do, that's my suggestion. Take her anywhere you think she'd like and you can go, give her all the love you have, and cherish every minute. And in that time frame, take care of yourself. It's pure hell for us, but that's all your dog wants--happiness and you.
