tonight we had to say goodbye to my dog of almost 11 years, jasper after he was diagnosed with lymphoma in october. he was only given two months but lasted almost 5, and even when we passed he was never acting sick. we knew it was time because he needed to be on several medications to be comfortable, and it was clear he was in pain when they were wearing off. It’s so odd being in the house without him. we have another dog, who is much younger and is clearly upset. we had a home euthanasia, so she was able to smell him once he passed and understand. although i knew it was coming it’s still so hard knowing he’s really gone. i’ll always wonder if we did it too early since he wasn’t super visibly sick, and lots of dogs are in much worse condition when they’re out to sleep. i hope it was right and we gave him a dignified death. i miss him already.

Dear Jazzybear,

I am so sorry to hear about Jasper, and wanted to write because my own sweet Teddie passed away due to lymphoma and some other conditions 20 days ago.

You did the right thing, please don’t worry (although it’s impossible not to, I know). I wish so so much I did things differently in treating Teddie’s lymphoma, but it was my first ever dog, and the vet advised to press on with chemo, so when she passed during her 3rd round, she was weak and had no appetite, so we we didn’t get that one perfect last day together.

I cherish our last night together because she went quietly in her sleep, with us holding her. You have to be proud and cherish your last days together too, it sounds like they were happy and painless because you took great care of your pup. Don’t rack yourself with what-ifs — I wish so so much that I never started Teddie’s chemo, but how could i have known the future. So your path that you chose for Jasper seems perfect and painless and calm, hope you find peace in this.
