Last month we found out Kobe has lymphoma

Our beautiful boy is near the end. It has been a hard month. My feelings have been all over the place. He is not doing well today and we know we will have to make the decision very soon.

Oh Sylvie :( :cry:

I'm so very sorry you are going through this. You, Kobe and your family have my thoughts and prayers. I hope his transition is as peaceful as my Thorin's was. If you need anything at all, please let me know. :2huggers:

Sylvie I wish there was something I could say to ease the pain you are feeling. You are dear to my heart and I too struggle to figure out why? You and DH have saved countless lives, fostered MANY dogs and what I struggle with is why does this happen to folks that are such wonderful people? Although I know our pets wont live forever I guess I wish for you to have more time with each of yours if that makes sense.

Kobe is a beautiful boy and he will take a piece of my heart with him too!

You know we are here for you if you and DH need anything. Enjoy every moment with Kobe and I wish you both peace with your decision. :grouphug:

I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this, Sylvie. :grouphug: He's a lucky boy to have you as parents to watch over him and help ease him through his transition. Give him a gentle hug from me and know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Having known my friend's GSD only a short time I really don't know how people cope with losing them. Wonderful intelligent, loyal dogs. You have my deepest sympathy, Sylvie, 8 years is not enough time for Kobe, it must be heart breaking.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I can say so many things right now, but I know that what ever I say will never ease the pain you are living right now. My thoughts are with you...:(

We are on a roller coaster ride. This morning we thought we would be losing him today or tomorrow and this afternoon he was his old self. He actually asked for dinner. He hasn't been eating properly for 2 weeks now and is so thin.

When I came home from work tonight, he ran up from the back of the yard to see me. Yesterday he could hardly make it up the small incline in the back. :shrug:

It is a day to day emotional journey.

Sylvie, I just saw this thread. I am so sorry to hear about Kobe. How heart wrenching for you to be going through this with him. He knows you are there for him though and that you will not do wrong by him. He trusts you to know what is best. Bless you and your husband for being there for all these dogs Sylvie. You are a wonderful soul and there will be a special place in heaven for you and hubby and your wonderful pets.

I'm glad Kobe rallied some for you. I know I don't need to tell you, but stay strong and enjoy every moment you have, even in sadness they will give you wonderful memories. Hugs to you my friend and a sweet gentle hug for Kobe. He has known love and will take it with him when it's time. My heart breaks for you.

Thank you everyone for your support. It really does help.

I am cherishing every moment that we have with him. He is such a gentle soul and I keep telling him that we will take care of his sister for him. She will truly miss him. as we all will.

I just saw this now, Sylvie I'm so sorry :grouphug:

Duffy also dealt with Lymphoma and some days they feel great others are so much harder and when they won't eat that makes even the smallest effort to lay in a different spot so difficult for both them & for us to watch them struggle.

I wish you strength & peace :grouphug:

Thank you everyone again. He is still with us but not sure for how long. Probably just a couple of more days. He is refusing to eat anything. Unfortunately, our day together yesterday did not turn out the way we had planned. I will update later, as I am at work now.

Unfortunately Kobe is not doing well. Will not eat anything and he is down to skin and bones. He is having trouble walking and his breathing is getting bad. We have made an appointment for tomorrow.

Sylvie, what a difficult thing to watch. We went through the same thing with Thorin. He would have some great days, then some really horrible ones. Just when we would think it was time, he would rally and be ok for a few more. It's such an emotional roller coaster :( :(

You are all in my thoughts and prayers :grouphug:

Sorry for those of you who didn't see the other thread, Kobe has gone to the Bridge. There were no more miracles for sweet Kobe other than going to the bridge in the arms of the people who loved him.
