It is with great sadness that i am posting this as my gorgeous baby boy Teddy has gone to Doggy Heaven.
A month ago we noticed a growth inside his mouth. I took him to the vets and they removed it and another little one. He was given steroids and antibiotics and pain medicine and all was fine until 2 weeks later. The growth was back.
I called the vet right away and took him in to see her. She was surprised and i asked her if they may have missed something. She stated no but expressed her concern about it having come back so soon. We discussed having her remove it again. The next day i called her to set up the appointment for today. Meanwhile he was getting a sore on top of his mouth which also was eating his skin. When I took him in this morning for his surgery she called in the head vet and it was confimed it was a cancerous tumour and it was eating away at the tissue in his mouth. She stated they wouldn't be able to remove it all unless they did a biopsy and referred him to a specialist who may not be able to remove it unless they cut into his jaw bone and he would have a gaping hole. I explained he had started coughing this past week and she believes it's spreading to his lungs. She strongly advised I don't go through with the surgery and if he was her dog she wouldn't do it.
Needless to say the only alternative was hearbreaking. She left us alone so I could decide what to do so I called my husband at work and explained what the vet said. He said babe we have to let him go. He's suffering. I knew that already but if there was even the slightest chance of saving him I wanted to do it. We spoke for a bit and sadly decided to humanely euthanize him. I stayed with Teddy and told him how much we loved him and we had to stop his suffering. Then he was gone. In my arms he passed away. My big boy is in doggy heaven. I sure wasn't expecting this when I woke up this morning. I can't stop crying. I wish there was another way that could have saved him. I love youTeddy
This last picture was taken moments before he passed.

Oh, I’m so so sorry for your loss of Teddy. He sounded like a wonderful, beautiful dog. I know how heart-breaking it can be to lose a dog, after I lost Phoebe. We’re all here for while you grieve.

R.I.P. Teddy
