Not sure if this will work has been ages since I've posted a photo of Sparkles. This was taken on Easter Sunday after she had been in the NSW Great Dane Specialty Show Parade of Veterans, going onto 12 in June she was the oldest there and made me very proud.

I know this isn't very active, but I thought I would post this here anyway, as I am still trying to get my head around it.

 

We have learnt that Whitney has bone cancer, what type is a moot point.

 

We have opted for palliative care, as with her DCM and fibrillation, she is not  a candidate for amputation of her left front leg (even if we thought she could manage without it) as she wouldn't survive the anaesthetic and chemotherapy wouldn't help on it's own. It's in her humerus, and is showing only slight bone deterioration as we found it early.  Her only symptom has been s light limp that didn't resolve with pain killers and rest. 

 

We are devastated as it's so soon after losing Harry,  and can't imagine our life without a dog in it.  The vet said her estimated survival is 6 -12 weeks at a guess.  As long as we can keep her comfortable and happy, we will do it, but will have to let her go when she has had enough.

 

We are loving her to bits.  She doesn't deserve this (no dog or person ever does) with her heart problems as well, and remarkably is still the sweetest, softest girl.  Her loving nature has not changed in any way and she is still a love bug.  We are hopeful of a good while with her yet, but have to take each day as it comes.

 

Thanks for letting me get it out, we haven't told all our friends yet as we want to absorb the reality first.

We said goodbye to Whitney this morning. She's left huge pawprints on our hearts. She was a special girl. RIP 22/12/05 - 14/8/17. Hildydane Whitneigh 14817.thumb.jpg.d3ea0b292490b7f47375a35e61cbb493.jpg

:cry::cry: So Sorry to hear of your heart breaking news, what a gorgeous old girl she was.

It is hard to say goodbye at any time but when they have been part of your life for so long it is even harder, I lost my heart boy in 2011 and I still find it hard to get over him being gone, he was 13 a good age for a Frenchie.

:kissbetter: to you and fly free precious Whitney to the :rainbowbridge:
