Reflecting On Our Decision

Still, each and every day we think about our Kisses and miss him terribly.  Almost 3 months removed from the final days, we can now reflect on our decision to treat the nasal cancer and why we felt it was the right thing to do.  Most people thought we were absolutely nuts to treat an almost 16 year old dog, or to spend what we spent.  But they never walked in our shoes and never loved our dog the way we did.  Not only did Kisses receive another 22 months of life after the radiation treatment, he had complete remission from the cancer.  Upon necropsy, there was no trace of cancer, even though the tumors can return within 8-12 mo. Colorado St. University Animal Cancer Center ROCKS!  And we'd do it again in a heartbeat!
