UPDATE 8-12-2010 —
My Dakota is a 9 year old Shepherd/Chow with a heart & soul of a 9 month old puppy. Dakota came to me when he was 2 months old and we have been inseparable since. He’s always been strong and in good health, we hike, we take long walks, he goes to dog parks, dog beaches, day care and even has play days along with his sister. Back in June of this year, I took him to the holistic vet for acupuncture, he had been limping a little; he was checked thoroughly and had no signs of anything. Two weeks later he was due for his annual check-up so I took him to the regular vet for his blood work and all, a mast cell tumor was discovered, after tests and being seen by the oncologist it was confirmed that it was a grade 3 tumor in his lymph node. Never did I imagine that my healthy best friend would have cancer. He had surgery and the recommendation of the vet and the oncologist was chemotherapy. We have started chemo and he is responding well and thanks to Canine cancer Awareness who is helping us, my Dakota has a chance to extend his life. He has given me the best years of his life, so much happiness and I have learned so much from both my dogs and want to give him something more: extending his life.
