I'm so sorry to hear about your little Gracie. This disease truly is horrible but I'm so happy I started this post to help everyone try to understand the ins and outs of this rollercoaster ride that is TCC. They kept Lita on Clavamox along with Peroxicam and she survived a lot longer that her prognosis. Just please give Gracie as much love as possible and know that whatever decision you ever decide to make in regards to her treatment will be the right one. Hugs and prayers. 

Hi Rose. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us and I am so sorry for your immense loss. I had no idea when I started this post a few years ago it would grow to be such a comfort to so many. It’s so amazing to read about the bravery and selflessness you and all of us have experienced with this horrible disease. It truly brings out the best and worst in each of us as we fight and pray and tell ourselves it’s not true but then in the end we second guess and somehow blame ourselves. This disease is absolutely horrible and I truly feel we all do the best we can, especially in the end. You are such a wonderful Fur-Mommy and you did the most selfless thing we can ever do and that’s letting go and allowing them to no longer be in pain. Thank you for sharing your story of Beautiful Boo and letting everyone know they are NOT alone. I think about my Sweet Little Lita everyday and I know she’s running free and waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. Hugs and Prayers, Jennifer Lita’s Fur-Mommy

Hi Trix08 and welcome to our blog. I am so sorry about the news you were given about your baby. We have all been there and can understand with the pain and devastation you feel. I was so mad when I found out about Lita I thought the doctor was crazy!! I took her to the specialist to 'prove him wrong' but instead the specialist confirmed the diagnosis and I had to face the harsh reality that my baby was now a hospice baby as TCC is not curable, BUT it is managable if you can find the right medication or choose the best treatment. Most of the dogs on here lived well over the time they were given by the doctors and that only happens when you have support and help and that's why we are here. Please don't be afraid to post any questions you have as, like I said, we have all been there with you. This is a very unfair disease but they have come a long way with testing and research. Prayers for your baby and for you and know that your love will help her through this. One day at a time. 

Thank you so much for sharing this information with us. I had Lita on Peroxicam but did not choose the chemo but sometimes I wonder if I should have. Back when she was diagnosed, the chemo treatments were $250.00 each and there was no guarantee that it would prolong her life. I am so glad that they have made strides in fighting this horrible cancer and I appreciate you for sharing these strides with everyone on this blog. Ellie's got a fight ahead of her but we are all here to provide prayers and support if you ever need it. Prayers and hugs to Ellie. Please keep us posted.

I am so happy to hear that he is still doing well. Every day is a blessing and when you have a dog with this ridiculous cancer you realize just how true that is. Thank you so much for the update. Prayers and hugs sent. Please keep me posted. 

Hi LoMonaco12,

How is Stuart? I haven't seen any updates and was just checking in on this blog. Is he still doing ok? 

I am so sorry to hear of Quik's passing and thank you for sharing this story. I know this blog continues to help with everyone's grief and I am grateful that there are still posts being written. I know your baby Quik is at The Rainbow Bridge playing with my Little Lita until we can see them again. We still think of Lita everyday and we know she is always with us. God Bless you and your family. 

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm know your little one is at The Rainvow Bridge playing with my Little Lita until we can see them again.
Terri, Thank you for posting this. I'm so sorry that your little boy is going through this. I know that a lot of people still read this posting and it helps them get through this horrible ordeal. God bless you and your little boy for many more days together. You sound like an amazing mom. Litasmom

Hi alleykat,

I am so happy that I started this page back when my little girl was experiencing these symptoms. We all go through the same see-saw of emotions with this disease and it sounds like you are an amazing mommy to your llittle Charlie. I completely agree with Everley. The disease rears it's ugly head the same in all the dogs that are unlucky enough to have it and you are doing everything perfect. Continue to spoil him with whatever he wants and I promise you will know when it's time. I never believed it but I knew when the time came. It's not a certain symptom or something to look for, I can only explain as this: you know when you start to see them giving up and they may stop eating or drinking or going to the bathroom. It's not typically an 'oh no, I have to rush him to the vet and put him to sleep because he's in so much pain' kinda know either. Their bodies just slowly give up and it's typically very gradual and it's then that you will know. Please keep us posted as we are all a little family on here and truly care about what you are going through.
