The Hardest Part Of Having A Dog Is; Knowing They Are Dying And There Is Nothing You Can Do To Help Them.

Hello friends, happy Wednesday.

 Nothing You Can Do To Help Them!

The Hardest Part Of Having A Dog Is; Knowing They Are Dying And There Is Nothing You Can Do To Help Them:

I am not too embarrassed to admit it, I have cried every day for the last 8 days. Since finding out the vets will do not more operations on Mollie to remove cancer. 

A week last Monday, I was all set to hand Mollie over to the vets because cancer had returned. Last November, Mollie had 3 lumps removed. When they sent them to the lab we found out they were cancer.

A few week ago we found some more lumps growing in the same place. We got in touch with our vet. He then agreed to do the operation. On condition that he could x-ray her first to see if cancer has spread. If cancer had spread, he would not operate.

I had to re-arrange the vets’ appointment and when we went back, we saw another vet. So, I handed over the lead feeling very positive for Mollie but the vet looked at me and said; I have not met Mollie before but I think the operation is too dangerous to go ahead with as cancer is in the same place. (Or something like this as my mind went into all kind of emotions).

I then had to take her home until she gets too poorly to carry on anymore.

My Beautiful Fur-Baby:

Look how fit and healthy she is but the cancer is slowing her down, day by day getting worse, quickly 🙁 Love this little fur baby to pieces and it is going to be so hard to watch her get poorly. She is not even 6 yet! Trying to make the most of every minute we have left together ❤️

    I am so sorry to read about Molly and what the two of you are going through. Those of us who have had fur babies know exactly how you feel. All you can do is to continue to love Molly and help her as much as you can until it becomes unbearable for her and you. Molly knows how much you love her.

      Thank you, Gail. It is so sad when you can’t do anything more for them, isn’t it 🙁

    We lost our first dog to cancer. My only words of advice are to focus on the dog and not the disease. My fondest memories of him are not of him dying but how he lived. Take pictures, record the good moments so you can relive them, and don’t focus on when you lose him, focus on how much joy he brings you now. The end will come soon enough but the joy in his company, in his love is limited and you don’t want to waste it.

    Peace and healing to you and your family.

    I’m so sorry to hear this Claire, such a sad time for you all and only 6 years old – poor darling. You know I had to say goodbye to my darling dog three weeks ago, so sad and I know how you feel with the tears. Sending you a very big hug Claire. Thinking of you and Molly. Jacqui x

    Oh my goodness, Claire, I am sorry to read this about sweet Mollie. She is so young still and it is never easy when we know our pets are unwell and we cannot do anything for them. Just keep loving her! Sending you lots of prayers and virtual hugs, my friend.

    Oh Claire, that’s so heartbreaking. I enjoy your blog but of course I actually write a reply to the dog based post. She looks like such a lovely pup. X

      Thank you, Samantha. It is heart-breaking. I cry everyday knowing I will be losing her soon. I watch the cancer getting bigger and Mollie slowing down and I know I can’t help her 🙁 She is so young and so full of life too
