Well i used to be here long ago ... and just thought i would give a sad update to any who remembered us
I just found out my boy has lymphoma... its a very sad day here in my house as we wait for his biopsy to come back and see how far it is. Magnum is 9 years old as of 2 weeks ago and i had my big boy since he was about 9 weeks of age ❤
Very very sad

Thanks for the info steve. I called my vet with this but unfortunately since maag is not even reponding to the treatment she gave she doesnt think its just lymphoma taking over but his age as well. He went downhill so fast. He was snoeshowing (hiking) with the fam only last week and right now he cant even get up to pee. He wants to get up and cant. I cant make him suffer any longer. My boy had a perfect life full of love and i dont want him to know the pain and suffering that he is enduring and dont want it to get worse. Im sick .... my heart is hurting and i will have a lot of pain to deal with after loosing my boy 😭 I have a lump in my throat and a knot in my stomach as his appt approaches. I have 2 hours left with my man and coudnt be more sad

I am heartbroken. I knew he was leaving. Knew his time was coming. Knew he was getting old and weak and knew i would have to say good bye. I knew that i would be sad but i never knew i would hurt like i am

Aimee we are so sorry to read of your loss of Magnum. We are fighting the same thing here with three and lost Leah and Mariska in the last two years to cancer of the spleen; Leah in December. I hope you can feel a hug and sending our thoughts of sympathy.
