Not as hard as you might think.   I've heard that ER2 gets off on that sort of thing.

The Duce (Elizabeth II name to MI-5) was in residence at Balmoral castle while I was serving with the British Thermal Unit doing training in Scotland.  Seems her Royal majesty gets sick of all the pomp and sneaks out dressed in plan dinghy clothing  so she can have a drink or two with everyone else.  She isn't crazy or a party girl but I bet she wouldn't mind helping a dog if you asked.

Better items for a dog's bucket list:

1. Hump the hottest biatch in the dog park.
2. Chase, kill, and eat something (maybe a small rabbit).
3. Go camping in the woods and pee on every tree for miles.
4.

I think animals need love and respect, and deserve as much consideration as they can be given by their caregivers. There is no doubt in my mind that a dog becomes a part of a family. They are much more than property, and are capable of love.

That said, that is the dumbest farking idea I've ever seen. It's a dog. It doesn't think about the ASPCA or care about blind dates. Give it food, toys, and attention, and it's pretty thrilled. It isn't much more complicated than that.

I'm sure he didn't think the ice cream cone or the Big Mac were stupid. His owners are probably thinking "Eh, he's terminal anyway. May as well enjoy the calories there sparky."

I think if humans are faced with a terminal diagnosis and are able, they should consume whatever the f*ck they want.

Crazy Dog wants to attack the Queen!

/
"God attack the Queen, send big dogs after her that bite her bum. Let them chase after her and rip her knickers off..." That'd be fantastic! Then she'd have to fight the crazy dog with a handbag with a brick inside of it.
"Crazy dog! Crazy dog!"
"Arrgghh, kill the Queen!"
"No - crazy dog!"

No, the ice cream and the big mac are great. Your dog wants burgers.

I mean calling it a bucket list like it's something he always wanted to do. He's a dog. Planning isn't really a dog thing.

That dog wants steak.

He should get a second opinion.
 
2014-06-16 05:25:03 PM  
Had a conversation with a VA dietician who has a lot of hospice patients. It really does come down to as close as palatable to ice cream and steak in those cases.

Sad story, but I'm glad they found out about the cancer so that they know to pamper the little doggie. Hopefully the spoiling will help them get a little closure when the pup passes.

My furry best friend died three weeks ago quite suddenly so I sadly didn't get the chance for much pampering. Perfectly healthy and happy one day, then cluster seizures for three days and death. He didn't last long enough for his MRI appt, though in hindsight it was for the best. Ponied up for a necropsy and found he had a large pink gelatinous brain tumor in the middle of his brain. Inoperable, and obviously very fatal -_-. Was only a 7 year old pembroke corgi so he should have had many more years.

I'm thankful that I had gone on a long camping trip with him a couple weeks before he passed. Lots of pictures of happy dog smiles to remember him by. His last meal ended up being a brown cinnamon sugar poptart. Didn't know he was going to die, but figured he needed a treat for putting up with the seizures.

So I guess love your doggies to the utmost. Never know when life can deal a bad hand.

Our Westie had terminal lymphoma.   The vet gave her a max of 90 days without treatment and a year with.  We spent about $3500 on chemotherapy over the next 9 months, and she ended up living over 4 years from her first diagnosis.
Definitely the best money I ever spent.

7. Spend an afternoon of rolling in dead things and cow patties.

I suck at posting but these folks rock at dog ownership. Making some fine memories of their boy and hopefully raking in ASPCA donations in his honor/memory

It's your money. Spend it, don't defend it.

/although you are whack for dropping 3.5k on pet, prolonging its agony. But it is your call.

The dog lived an additional four years; she didn't drop dead the minute the chemo was done.  I'd agree with trippdog -- money well spent.

No, no, it works just fine with the Queen's knickers in my fantasy!

Oh this "It's not human. Fark it." argument. Look better spent on a dog living four more years than a human who is a vegetable and living organ donation plant.

Sorry for your loss.

Scariest moment I ever had was last summer.  I wasn't allowed to have pets as a kid and now I have a Boxer (Sunny), a Neo Mastiff (Athena) and a cat (Aston).  Last summer the Boxer had what I thought was a reaction to a tick bite.  Of course, that sort of thinking led to me being floored when the vet came back and said that it was a mast cell tumour.  Fortunately we caught it super early so that 2 surgeries and 5 weeks later he was back to his usual silly self.

Like the other person in this thread I wouldn't have hesitated to spend $3500 or $5000 or whatever it took to get him better.  But I did have somewhat (manly) tearful face to face discussion with Sunny that he would let me know if it was too much pain to go on.  I would have done anything so long as I was doing it for him and not me.  Other pets knew something was wrong with him after his surgery, Athena, who usuallly the bossiest biatch you have ever met was gentle with him and Aston curled up with him whenever he settled in for an afternoon nap.

To summarize

/cancer sucks
//dogs rock
///and sometime cats too

If she was in agony, you would have apoint - she was weak during chemo and lost some hair, but she was never in pain and was always ready to play.

My reason you bringing this up at all is that I did have misgivings at the time about spending that much money on a pet.  But looking at it now, there is nothing I could have done with $3500 that could possibly have given me as much happiness as having Daisy around for those extra years (including hookers and blow).

I would encourage anyone in a similar situation (where the pet isn't suffering) to farking go for it.  You will never find a better use for your money - ever.

Better yet, this is why my dog has health insurance. I never have to add money to the list of concerns when dealing with his health.

People spend that much and more on totally useless stuff to make themselves feel better - jewelry, clothes, vacations, diet fads, etc. There are plenty of examples of things you could buy instead of chemotherapy for a dog. So if the money is yours and that's what will make you feel better, fine, spend it that way. Just be honest: it's simply a gift to you. You aren't doing the dog any favors unless you think that the dog was in more pain before than during and after chemotherapy.

We bring pets into our homes and lives for our own enjoyment. Sure, it's an easier life for them - ample food, fresh water, air conditioning, freedom from predators and most parasites/diseases. But then they also have to share our human stressors - noise, pollution, processed food, asshat neighbors and medicines (which is just a fancy name for beneficial poison).

I'm glad the dog was around for another 4 years, but that was entirely for you. The dog had no expectation of it.
