Had I had the money to spend $ 45.000 on my dogs if they got sick and needed it I would probably do it, if it would actually benefit them that is, sometimes I feel that today we go maybe one step too far in treating them, rather than letting them go to the bridge. But now, Im afraid that that amount of money is just a tad bit out of my league lol....

wow, being drunk and reading that wasn't good for me lol.

my dog tyler died oct 9th 2001 of lymphoma.  we found it, and 3 weeks later we had to put him to sleep.  it wasn't for a lack of trying, it was for a lack of the chemo working and not wanting to put him through any more......

i had no idea they did that for dogs......I WOULD HAVE SOLD MYSELF FOR HIM TO HAVE HAD THAT!

good for comet!  and good for his family!  the world needs more dog parents like his!
