    There is no hope... The cancercells appear to be T-cells. Chemo could prolongue his life, but will not cure him. I am not going to put him through treatments that will not cure him... He will be kept on prednisone for as long as possible and I will spoil him rotten with play, walks and goodies, until he will let me know that it is his time to go... I hope I will have the wisdom to "read" his signals and the courage to let him go. It is so sad. He is my soulmate. I will try to enjoy my remaining time with him.
    He is the best dog there ever was... for me, at least.

    I feel a bit better now, as there is still hope. I took Cody to a clinic in Gouda, where they will probably be able to treat his cancer with chemotherapy! My Boxer's quality of life will be better than mine, but I don't care! I hope he will be able to recover.

    I am heartbroken as my Boxer, my buddy and soulmate, has been diagnosed with cancer at age 8 yrs 9 months. I am looking into what can still be done. The vet said chemo would be a possibility....
     Hoping and praying with tears in my eyes...
