|From Dante's Mom and Dad,
Thank you everyone for all your love and support. Receiving this news (yet again in this house 4 dogs, 4 cancer diagnoses...can't wrap our heads around it) has been tough to say the least. Bogey had the same cancer but his was in a different part of the bladder so his prognosis was not good as evidenced by the fact that we found out he had it on a Monday and he left us on Saturday of the same week.
This has been an extremely difficult year for our family thusfar in SOOO many ways that we haven't even shared with our RR friends and there are some days when we say "WHY?" then we cry, and then we go on as there is no other alternative. Even our vet said he couldn't believe he had to tell us again that one of our dogs had the Big C. We feel that it was very hard for him to tell us.
ON the positive side,
Dante is a FIGHTER! We will keep everyone posted and with some luck (and his Chinese meds) his tumor will shrink which will hopefully give him a good quality of life for a long time. Our vet says that this type of cancer normally does not spread and it is a matter of keeping the mass from growing so that is what we are working hard to do. He has many more gigs to play and more costumes to wear!
We love you all,
Cathy and Phil and of course, Dante!! xoxox
