Selzer, how is Quinny and pup. Just wanted to know how things are going?

I was wondering how things are going.

This could go in either the Senior or puppy thread, so I picked puppy.

Yeah, Quinnie is just 3 years old, so she is like a big puppy. It is growing. The evil thing in her mouth. I can see her face puffed out a little like she has an abscess. I have considered taking her in and having them check them. They will think I am stupid, they told me there is nothing more to do but put her down. I feel like a monster, searching for evidence that I should have her put down. I know that I am doing something more like trying to gage the right time to let her have as many good days as possible, and as few bad days. She did not want to eat the night before last, and just went into my bedroom and got on my bed, and I gave her some antibiotics, and cuddled with her. The next morning she started eating. I thought, yay!. Then I saw the blood in my bed, and I am disheartened again. It is a roller coaster. But she was wagging her tail and jumping up and down today.


Kaiah, the baby-puppy is doing great. And, Babsy and Heidi are hanging in there.


Thanks for asking.

Selzer, please forgive me I didn't realize or forgot that Quinny is only 3. That has to be so hard and heartbreaking. I wish I would have thought about this sooner, but some times low dose steroids will slow the growth of cancer tumors.

I remember JeanKBBMMMAAN had one or two of her dogs on low dose steroids and got some quality additional time.

Whew --- this is a tough one with older dogs but seems so much harder with a young one. I think you'll know without a doubt when the time comes. But getting "there" is hell.

I wish you weren't taking this journey but Quinny is lucky to have you on her side. She's very very fortunate dog in that respect.

Thank you. I will check out the low dose steroids.

Today, Quinnie was running back and fourth and the 10-11 week old pup was following her, back and forth, with her teeth clamped onto Quinnie's tail. It's ok, 20 minutes later I was outside, and I look over at Quinnie who was standing in an awkward position, her own teeth on her tail. I told her not to let it get away. I love this little bitch so much.
