Hi Lisa, just checking in, sending you support and encouragement to enjoy every moment with Max The Handsome. wub We don't like to think of the worst case, though sometimes we do it to feel more prepared just-in-case. We're all rooting for Max to rally, for this to be something less worrysome. I am continuing to send Max Reiki. paw Such a loved boy, with a humungus fanclub here, and at the school, too! May he be feeling better, and holding his own. gsdbeggin

Thank you so much everyone, it helps a lot, to not go through this alone, so to speak.

Kathy, I will tell Max that we need good news for your birthday, and hope that it's a magic charm.

Prepare for the worstN hope for the best - will be my mantra for the next few days. The thought that in a week, he might not be here, unless something changes, is just incomprehensible. He had a really hard time eating last night, though breakfast went a lot better - small encouraging signs I'll hang on to.

Thank you Patti for helping my boy to heal. Last night he didn't want to go out and wouldn't go upstairs, so I slept downstairs on the couch with him. This morning though, he did come up when I was taking a shower, which made me very happy.

He is not panting at all this morning, I don't know what that means. Would hemangio get worse after meals? This might be happening, and I keep hoping it would point in another direction. I guess if there is a lot of fluid in the abdomen, the added pressure of food might be bad?

His urine is also very dark and kinda orange-y...thought that was dehydration, but maybe not.

He has instructions today to rest and heal - he is a good boy, so I'm sure he will be working on that.

Thank you again everyone.

For the first time ever, he has been leaving the room to go lay in quiet in the other room by himself. NOT liking this, but respecting his needs for right now at least.


You know, this is harder than some may imagine. My Solo always went off by herself when overly tired, or not feeling well. It was a worry for me not to be able to see her, but also I felt like there was something I should be doing for her and I was perhaps missing it.

I wish I had known a physic back then - they probably would have told me that Solo was just so comfortable, relaxing on her own where it was most quiet, knowing that if she did need me I was there.


Max, hugs to you. I wish I could offer you some magic potion and make things all better. Since I cannot, I will just continue sending out my best good thoughts to you and Lisa. hugging

I don't know how helpful this info will be - my experience was hemangios. with the late Barker the Younger. The dog looses energy when s/he bleeds. The blood is reabsorbed, their blood supply (well it doesn't exactly "increase") goes back to the more routine, helpful location, the dog feels more energetic. I would think any sort of bleed would follow a similar path. With hemangio it has a catch 22 - hopefully not with the other causes.

So far as encouraging a patient to eat - this was Barker the Elder, BTY never felt so bad she wouldn't eat! - finely sliced roast turkey breast from the deli and canned baby food (chicken or beef) helped.

Barker the Elder had several fades and rallies over the last couple of years of her life. May Max rally for longer and, darn it, soon!

Is there a more comfortable place for Max to sleep in the other room? I know now that Mac is a senior if he can't be on the couch with me, or acts uncomfortable, he'll often go get on one of the dog beds in the bedroom.

Hi Lisa,

Just checking in on you and the handsome, sweet Max. When Basu had hemangio one afternoon he stopped eating and had no energy. When I came home that night he was really ticked that I hadn't fed him. The next day he was back to his old self, had a good walk with Chama, eating fine, etc. Then when the tumor started bleeding again he lost energy and his appetite again.

Hopefully Max is feeling ok tonight.

Please enjoy your weekend with him--take him somewhere he loves. hugging

Lisa, you and Max are definitely not alone. grouphug We are all here for you both. I'm continuing sending Reiki to Max. Does it seem to you that he doesn't seem to feel sick, just uncomfortable and weak/tired? I think it is very good that you slept nearby. Maybe some reading or watching TV while sitting near him on the floor, if he doesn;t go in the other room, might make you both feel supported by eachother, perhaps? In most pictures of Max, the shot seems to be taken from right at Max's level. My sense is that you really connect with your dogs where and how they are, Lisa. They sense that. How lucky Max is to have you. hugging Wishing for time, extended and sweet... hugging
