I went to the vet today, to have an opinion about the disease of my dog Bretzel, a beautiful German Shepard female. Since a couple of weeks, she had issues to "go to toilet", let says things like that.

I learn today that she is really sick, with a cancer that has metastasized everywhere. 7yo and 1/2... Too young, two quick. The vet gives us between 3 weeks and 2 months, with a huge chemical pills to knock down a horse. We, all my family have decided to let Bretzel to go next week. Not useful to let her stay longer. She doesn't suffer, when you look at her, but the disease wins some field...

Sometimes, life reshuffles the cards, and it can happen that one of them falls from the deck...

We love our doggos so much. It's really tough to lose one. Hold her close.

So sorry to hear the bad diagnosis. Puts problems with old cars in perspective. Our furry family members are always hard to lose.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

I know this feeling all too well. My thoughts are with you, yours, and Bretzel.
Try to learn life's bad lessons vicariously through others.
