    Cancer

    Advertisements
    My family's dog, Chester, is 13 years old. He's a terrier mutt that we rescued when I was 12. My furbrother has been in my family more than half my life. My mom and I took him into the vet on Monday for routine shots, and the vet felt a mass, did xrays, and found a mass about the size of a grown man's fist. We took Chester in for an ultrasound today, and they told us that he has two malignant tumors, one in the intestines, and one in an anal gland. The cancer has metastasized to his lymph nodes. My mom is breaking down, because Chester is the baby of the family. I can't be upset in front of my mom because I don't want to make things even worse for her, and so I have to just be upset in the privacy of my own room. My dad, my sister and I are trying to stay strong for my mom. The vet has given him weeks, maybe a month or two to live. I'm just thankful that I moved back home for school (even though DH is still in another state), because at least I get to spend the summer with my dog. Not to diminish my love for my own furbabies, but Chester is my first dog, my first pet, and deep down I always believed he would live forever.

    I am so very sorry. It sounds like he has been blessed with a long and happy life with your family. Make the most of the time he has.
