I’m so sorry to read this about R, thank you for letting us know.
Getting the news about mets is bad enough but when you get the update that eventually comes when you’re coping with metastasis, ugh, it just feels like you’ve lost the battle. I remember it well, feeling frustrated that the treatment wasn’t working, that it was the end of the road. It took me a long time to get my emotions under control the way you have, and realize that whatever the size of the mets and the prognosis, all a dog wants to do it continue enjoying every second on this beautiful planet with the people they love most. You are seeing the power of Being More Dog so clearly, and this will benefit Rearden tremendously wherever the journey takes you next. It’s a gift like no other, and one that makes him very proud of you.
Please let us know what we can do to support you OK? We are here for you always. And don’t forget to share some photos of your gorgeous boy, we haven’t seen any in a while and would love to swoon over him 🙂
