NWR - doggie update
Thanks for your responses on my previous post regarding FI's dog Riley last week.
He was officially diagnosed with lymphoma and we have made the decision not to do chemo. FI, his daughter, and I weighed out all the pros and cons and came to the conclusion that as a 10 1/2 year old dog he has had an awesome life and as long as he is feeling and acting well we will shower him with love as long as we can. The chemo would only give him maybe a year, including the 6 months of chemo. Not to say a year isn't something we would love, we just feel his quality of life would not be as it should.
You wouldn't know he's sick. But they do say that he could have a rapid decline in 1-2 months. He's such a nutjob dog my guess is he'll stick around for awhile just to prove he's tough! I hope that's the case. We just want to make sure he doesn't suffer.
Lastly, I wanted to share a fabulous picture that FI's daughter took this week. Yes, he's a boy in a pink hat! LOL
