Yes, absolutely.  There is a time when "no treatment" is the best treatment.  Free to just be Po with no more poking and prodding.  And that alone can help bring you peace and freedom to be with Po unencumbered.

We are all surrounding you with our love as yiu share time with Po.  Ice cream, cupcakes, srinky loverwjrst, , nothing is off limits!

thanks Jackie for checking on us, Po is not doing well. He has stopped eating and his breathing is getting more labored. We are planning to let him go Wednesday if he keeps going downhill. Sometimes I wonder if he is gonna make it till then 🙁 ugh.

(((Big hug))) I am so sorry. He has stopped eating totally? I was really hoping you would have some more good time together. Just stinks. Is he still getting around ok? You have been a wonderful mama to your Po, please don't forget that. You have done everything and more than a lot of people would. I hope with all of my heart that these last days are peaceful for all of you. Keeping you close in my heart.

He went out to pee late this morning. He had 3 scrambled eggs today. Yesterday he drank a lot more and ate a bit more. I just don't know if he is having a bad day or if this is it. So hard to know. He is still alert and even wagged his tail when my son came home this morning. ugh

Thanks, i will keep you guys posted.

Maybe he is just slowing down some. I know exactly where you are at right now and it stinks. The only thing I can tell you is that when it is time I believe you will know it. This is so hard I know, but just give him the lovin and attention and spoiling that you can give and let him love you back.  And we are all here if you need to rant!! You can use us as your sounding board any time heart

Jackie

My heart sank...then I read your next post and my heart soared! YAY PO!!

This part of the journey is so full of ups and downs...full of good days peppered with less good days.

Maybe make some notes so you can compare how many good days to the less good...or how many days had tail wags and a feast on scrambled eggs and how many  didn't.  It may be that  his better days correlate to when  he eats better.   And the days he doesn't  eat, he just feels yucky.  Eggs, bacon, cheese omelets,  whatever works.

I think P.o  is making sure he is  giving  you a few more good memories to make you smile.  And I know this may sound crazy right now, but sometimes,   as a dog gets closer to exiting  the earth clothes that no longer serve them, it gives them a burst of energy.  That's  because  they know they will be feeling  healthy  and whole in the future. 

Nope, today's  not the day, and probably  not tomorrow either.  And you need not think any further than that.  

We sure do love this boy  and will continue  to hope for the best for that sweet special boy .❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Po earned his angel wings yesterday afternoon. He had stopped drinking all together and barely could walk to go to the bathroom. He hadn't eating anything substantial in days. 

my heart is in a million pieces. 🙁 I miss him so much already

Oh noooo! I'm really sorry to read this sad news. You did all you could for your sweet boy, and gave him a farewell with the dignity and love that he deserved. It's so difficult to cope right now, and your heart is rightly broken. In time, all those good memories you shared will help to heal it, but right now just allow yourself to grieve and know that the saying "when we love hard, we grieve hard" is so true at a time like this.

I hope that if or when you are ready, you'll consider posting a tribute about Po in Coping with Loss so that we can honor his life with you.

For now, I'm so very, very sorry and send lots of love and condolences your way.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Oh noooo sweetie 😔 

I am devastated for you and do not know how I missed your thread up to now ...

These are the saddest news but please try and take comfort in the fact there was nothing, nothing at all you could do for Po.

His time had come and he was ready.

When it gets to the point he was in, it is time for our babies to be released and get their silver wings. 

He is happy now, sweetie, you can be sure of that, he is flying from cloud to cloud with all of our Angels and telling everybody how wonderful a Mom you were 💗

Po will be looking after you from above until you meet again, he is the brightest, most beautiful star in the sky 🌟 shinning above all, for his adored Mom 💗

My heart is with yours, please be sure Angel Eurydice was there to welcome your adored baby and she will guide him in his new life 😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

So very, very, very heartsick to hear this sad news.  We are all soooo sorry and we cry heard with you.   This piece of crap disease  is so brutal and barbaric  and unforgiving .  

NO ONE  could have done more for our precious Po.  He could not have been more loved and more spoiled .  He knew you would do EVERYTHING  possible to give him the best life possible .  And when his quality  started to diminish, he knew you  would love him enough  to give him release  from his failing  earth clothes.

As Theresa  said, it was his time.  As hard as it is to reconcile  that in our human minds, his Soul felt like it's earth mission was completed and didn't  need to hang around anymore.  The Soul IS eternal and it's  an energy  that transcends  time and space. 

Eight now your grief is so raw and dug wrenching,  the void is so deep, it's  hard to wrap your head around all the wonderful  memories  you and P.o (always love the name) share.  It's  hard to believe he WILL make his presence known, but he will!  Pay attention .

PLEASE STAY CONNECTED.   This is so hard and the pain won't  subside anytime  soon.  But you are surrounded  by your tripawd family  who understand the depth of your love like nom others can.  

Po's eternal bright light can NEVER be dimmed.  And PLEASE know, he will ALWAYS be remembered here and we will always smile as we celebrate  a very special dog who knew how to live life to the fullest.

I do hope, when you can, you will share more of this very special  boy. 

Surrounding  you with Po's non-stop  wagging tail❤

I'm so, so sorry for your loss. You gave him the best gift of all - the gift of freedom from his worn out body when it could go on no longer. I never believed in the "he will give you a sign that he's okay" thing until my dog Murray passed away. I took him for one last walk, and a little hummingbird came down and nearly landed on his head. When I got home from letting him go, guess what? A little hummingbird came right up to me, hovered in front of me (really, really close) for a minute or so, and zoomed off into the sky. Now I believe in signs. Every time I see one come close, I know its him saying hi. So watch for a sign, he will be sure to send you one.

Thanks guys for the kind words. I miss him so so much. Still struggling with the decision I made. Did I do it too early? Did I do enough? My vet is astonished how fast and aggressive his cancer grew despite treatment. Did I do something wrong along the way? ugh! 

He was cremated yesterday and I will get his ashes sometime this week. 🙁 I don't think his passing has hit me yet.

You did everything right. I know it doesn't feel that way, but you took away his suffering and he needed you to do that. I am so so so sorry that we lost Po, but I absolutely believe you made all the right decisions. Big hug. We will be thinking about you.
