    About a month or so ago, my 19 year old dog Lily developed a small soft growth on her right front leg. Without going into every detail, it turned out to be cancer and it was moving fast. So this morning I said goodbye to the best partner a guy could hope for.

    There will never be another just like you Lily. And I am grateful for all the years you put up with me.

    RIP

    Terribly sorry for your loss, our pets are so dedicated to us that their departure always leaves a huge hole in our life. In all cases it does for me.

    I feel your pain !

    Stay strong !

    Deepest sympathies. It can be so hard, but there are so many good memories to focus on. And it sounds like she had a great life right up to the end.

    It hurts so bad to lose one of our fur babies. I'm sure she had a wonderful life with you. I am still hurting from the loss of the guy in my avatar, so I feel your pain R.I.P. Lilly

    Really sorry to hear your news, Ron. Lily must have been very well cared for to make it to 19-years-old, but I know that doesn't diminish your sense of loss.

    So sorry for your loss.:(
    What a sweetie. 19 years was a very good life.

    They love unconditionally, are always there when you need them, they become a part of your family and leave an indelible mark on our souls.
    I have a 10 year old female who is suffering from lymphoma and cervical/lung cancer. She was so sick she could not walk or hold her bowels or urine. Too young to be going through this already.
    We spent thousands with everything the vet could throw at her. We gave up and said it was time to put her down.
    The vet even kept calling us saying it was time and he knew how hard it was. I was sick to my stomach about it.

    Then like a miracle from above I had a chance meeting with a local who told me about the medicinal power of cannabinoids.
    He made up the medicine and I gladly paid him for his services.

    She is on the upswing and almost out of the woods, my country vet refuses to believe that Cannabis has turned her around. I am now a believer in the power of herbal medicine.

    Before and after photos. She never slept like that and when she was really sick she stayed like that all day.(May)
    The other photo is her today so I guess according to our government my dog now has a drug problem.
    Only man can take one of natures greatest medicines and turn it into the exact opposite of how it was intended to be used.
    I was a naysayer for many years and despised the folks abusing it because I thought it was a waste of life. IMG_2693.jpg IMG_2759.jpg

    This was my personal experience, if your dog is suffering please try everything.
