Just watch her carefully. Dogs hide their pain well (its a pack thing). Our first lab made it to 15 but we should have let her go sooner. Our second to 14 and we let her go at the right time.

I still feel bad about keeping the first one longer than we should have. the 2nd was Puddles the Jam dog who had about 12 years of Clamfest under her belt...um collar

She crossed the rainbow bridge about a year ago

Puddles sure looks like she could be a cousin of Molly's.

Darn, that's sad news. But clearly she has had a wonderful, long life and her final months will be filled with mutual love and some special treats for her, too.

We're bringing Molly to the Vet today. They are going to do some X-rays and imaging to determine if there is any noticeable spread of the cancer. If there isn't then there is a chance the nose lesion can be further removed and the cancer won't spread. Further treatment will depend on what they find today.

Man, this is hard.

So sorry to hear this.

We love our dogs so much and it's incredibly painful and sad when they're gone.

Our lab mix Cassie just turned 8. I pray she stays healthy.

Ken, I'm going to start Mackerel therapy for her. :)

Good news today, x-rays and ultrasound look clean so it hasn't spread. Next step is the doggy oncologist to find out what our options are for treatment.

Vet doesn't think further resection of the nose will be possible and thinks radiation will be recommended.

It's so difficult to think what is best for the dog versus when it's time for hospice. She's 13 and I don't want to make what time she has left to be miserable.

It's so hard to let them go. When they are so loved, they go out happy and fulfilled.

A little good news is good.

Trust your vet to help you determine Molly's quality of life. It's very hard to know 100% because our pets can't speak to us. But they do communicate in other ways.

Best of luck for her! I remember what our vet told us when we were trying to decide what to do about Hawk’s osteo - “old age shouldn’t be a death sentence.” It’s all about the quality of life.

And I’ll bet she’s gonna love that jack mackerel. ;-)

My wife and I have made the very difficult decision to not subject Molly to chemo or radiation treatments.

At 13 years old and with this particular lymphoma, it is pretty iffy if this would give her any longer life or quality of life. She gets so stressed out going to the vet I'd be afraid the oncologist visits would take time away from her rather than add it.

Right now she is still active and happy and we want to give her as much time like that as we can.

Thank you all.

The best decisions are often tough. The best to you, your family and Molly.
