    Sorry for your loss, EdF . A few years ago I had to have my 11 y.o. GSD Greta euthanized. Our vet was kind enough to meet us us at his office late at night when it became painfully obvious it was time. I made sure she got to enjoy a McDonald's hamburger enroute. That was 2009 and I still miss that dog.

      We were fortunate this time, and did not have to face that decision. Her pain (hip) was no worse than it's been for quite a while. No acute symptoms of anything, just worn out.

                      Ed, I am sorry for your loss. Telling the story always helps in the grieving process. You have peaked my interest. How did she save your life by discovering your cancer?

                        Sorry for your loss Ed. We lost a Dalmatian a number of years ago who was truly part of the family, and her picture is still on the wall with all the family photos. I tear up thinking about it even now, 7 years later.
