:( The vet called this afternoon. I feel sick. We don't know yet what we are going to do. Duke is fine but really wondering what the heck is wrong with us! We are going to a tea party this afternoon and taking him with. He's going to wear a patriotic bandana.

It's probably not likely he can get into a trial at CSU because of the seizure disorder and maybe some kidney issues. We are still going to try and hope against hope. God's a big God.

We are also holding out for a miracle.

We know for sure it has not gone into his chest. They took xrays yesterday. Don't know yet about his belly so that's probably going to be tomorrow. Then, when we know what stage - we'll decide the rest.

Is it true that even with chemo that the expectancy is only a year to 18 months? Tell me that's not true. Please tell me it's not true. I love him so. WE love him so.

I'm sorry about your news. Give him a HUGE hug and tell him you love him. Take a breath and think about your plan tomorrow. It's a lot to take all at once.

That makes for a hard thoughts are with you.
I don't know anything about Lymphoma but surely others here will be able to answer your question.

I just want you to know how sorry I am for this news. You & Duke have been around as long as me and Daisy have been.

You know I love you, Cindy. And Duke will always and forever be one of my favorites :heartbeat
I am so, so sorry! Hugs to all of you! Hopefully something can be done.
Oh no... I'm so sorry. Many, many prayers coming from our house to yours. Ear rubs for Duke and hugs to you.

I wish I could be there with you and Duke, but I can't. But I can send my prayers and thoughts to you, and what ever research I can find.

Hugs for all of you

Nancy, Hailey and especially little bro Mitch
So very sad to hear the news. I have worn your shoes before and do not envy the decisions you will need to make in the coming months. Our thoughts are with you and Duke. Please keep us updated.
I am so sorry to hear this sorrowful news about Duke. He will be in my thoughts constantly, and I so hope his lymphoma is at a very early stage and the better type for treatment. I hope too he follows in the pawsteps of Miss Meggie and outlives the statistics with a waggty tail. I have lost three dogs to cancer - each of them so very dear to me- and I empathize with the difficulty of hearing such terrible news but then seeing your unsuspecting buddy who doesnt understand such things. . . Kisses and hugs to Duke. Spoil him like crazy. . .
Cindy, I am so very sorry to hear this sad news. Please know that Duke is in my prayers and so are you. Just go to the Tea party with Duke and have a nice with this later. I am so very sorry.....please keep us posted and if there is anything that I can do tohelp, please let me know.... xxoo
I'm so sorry to hear this!.
Prayers coming from Florida!.
I so wish I could give you a hug and tell you that everything will be OK!.
Oh my I can't imagine the pain you are going through right now. My heart is breaking for you and Duke. I will be saying many many prayers for Duke.
I'm very sorry. I know it's not easy, but try to enjoy each day with him. And you may get lucky with the treatments and he goes into remission.

Best of luck!
You are in my prayers! I am so sorry to hear this. Give the strong guy a big hug from me, and a big huge one to you too.
so sorry....
You are in shock now. Right now, it's one day at a time. I am so sorry.
Oh no! Good thoughts and prayers being sent to you and Duke!
I am so sorry......... You and Duke will be in my thoughts.
Oh Cindy

I have known you and Duke for so long. I just feel sick about this. I am just so sorry!

Duke's pic is on my brother's restaurant wall, along with so many other good friends of Buddy's. I love and smile at him whenever I see him and will be a constant reminder of what a good dog he is.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Vic and Buddy
I am so sorry for this news. We are currently dealing with this horrible disease with Tasha. She was diagnosed last November and had chemo. I know how you must feel. Take everything one day at a time. It is a lot of information at once. Please know you are in our prayers. If you have any questions that I can help with please let me know.
I am so very sorry. Will keep praying for sweet Duke and some good news for treatment.
