My mom's dog may not be coming home tonight

Dakota is 14. She got him when I was 18 so he's always been a part of my adult life. He's had cancer once and the vet was able to remove the tumor but now, 2 years later, he has another at his side and she said it smells terrible, like its rotting or something since he scratched it open today. The animal hospital told her to come right away and the poor boy can't even stand anymore and is whimpering in pain.

My mom and I already discussed a while back that he may not make it to the end of the year and she doesn't want to put him thru surgery again at his age, if that is even an option at this point anymore.

So I'm waiting by my phone crying, waiting for my mom to call with the inevitable news that we are all afraid is coming. I know all of you would understand the emotional toll this takes so that's why I needed to let you know.

  • Thanks everyone. He's running free now in Heaven, probably taking a walk with my Pappap while he's at it.

    Its amazing how animals pick up on our emotions. Lola laid right next to me last night, her head almost on my chest and feeling her hot breath on my arm. I found it comforting. DH came home from work and Lola spent time with him. At some point, I woke up and she's sitting, watching me until I tell her come up onto the bed and she snuggled the rest of the night. In fact, she just came out to sit next to while I type and is going back to sleep.
