thanks everyone. sonny is now 13 1/2 years old we adopted him at 6 1/2 years old from a local shelter..

he had a horrible life before i got him, so i know his life with me has been great... he has not wanted for anything, and lives like a king..

when he starts to get worse i am taking him for his final appointment.

the cancer is so spread thruought his body basically that there is nothing that can be done, and i refuse to subject him to anything that will lessen his quality of life that he has left for the next few months.

OMG, that's horrible!! I can't say how badly I feel for you. This is the hardest decision we have to make as our dogs' guardians. No matter how much time we have with our guys, it's never going to be enough, and it seems that the years fly by. We always think there will be more time.... :crybaby:

My most heartfelt condolences to you. Hugs to both you and Sonny. Thank you for taking him in, and giving him the good life and the love he deserved. :hug:
