Born Oct 2003, had to be put down Aug 28th 2009.
Had a Mastcell Tumor, was doing very well on Chemo and then all of a sudden it stopped working and grew to a huge size to were she was in pain. the tumor was located on her stomach. Lucy was a registered Great Pyraneese. she was a gentle giant with a big heart full pf love and big paws to match. Loved spending time with her friends Tia, Macy, Daisy, and Melvin. she thought that she was the size of a poodle and could just crawl in the recliner with you at any given time. she loved ice cream and also shared my dads nachos with him…or anything he was eating. she was queen of the coach and loved naps, we could tell this by the loud snores coming from the living room. lucy would travel to the University of Missouri in columbia once a week for treatments. she was a fighter right up untill her final day. Lucy will forever be in our hearts and i will still miss my Goose standing over me wile i sleep drooling on me until i woke up. We all Love you and miss you very much Lucy Goose.
Love,
Donald, Keli, and Jordin
along with the whole gang

    My 21 month old coonhound/dobie mix just died of cancer. She wasn’t even two. How in the world can this happen? Sasha was a nationally certified therapy dog working with special needs children and she had her CGC. The kids cried their eyes out today, when I told them that on Monday, Sasha died of cancer. The cancer was found in her spleen and lymph glands. Anyone have any thoughts on how in the world this could happen to such a young, precious and very loved little girl?

    Dear Holly,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your Sasha. She was such a baby…way too young to die. As we cruely found out…canine cancer is more prevalent than we ever thought….and it can happen at any age. Our beloved Labrador Retriever, Ralph, who is pictured on this site, died suddenly of what appeared to be nasal cancer. It went undetected and one day his nose bled and within 24 hrs. he was gone. We were shocked, eventhough he was nine, we feel like he was gyped out of some quality years of life. It just seems so unacceptable to happen to a dog as young as yours. I wish I knew what could have prevented this ugly monster from taking our dogs precious lives…we thought we did everything right..but unfortunately, it doesn’t always seem to matter. I hope you will get some comfort from this site. I was so upset and still am that my dog passed away so suddenly. I would lay in bed late at night…googling every site imaginable for answers. Unfortunately, the reality is canine cancer just happens..no matter how well we take care of our animals.This site really helped me feel better…and not so alone. Sharing my story with other animal lovers…some who have lost their best friends to cancer and some that just truly love animals and wanted to express their heartfelt condolences to us …it was very touching and such a comfort. I hope this site will give you some comfort and even answers to why you lost your Sasha so young.
    Again, our sincere condolences to you and your family.

    Hi everyone my name is Travis. My best friend in the world, my almost 5 year old black lab Marley was just diagnosed with a stage 3 MCT. She’s had her fair share of vet visits and we thought this was just another walk in the park until the fine needle aspirated revealed a very invading MCT which is located on her left ear. I can’t tell you how hard it’s been on me and my family. I raised her from just a little pup and took her everywhere. We took long car rides up in the mountains, went camping and shared everything together. My heart goes out to everyone effect by this horrible disease. It breaks my heart to think that the time spent with my loyal friend will be cut short, for no good reason at all. She didn’t deserve this nor does any other dog affected by this disease. Thanks again for everything you do
