I have some really bad news about Carmen, our Doberman. She has cancer. Oh my gosh! I don't know what my sister will do without her. I never dreamed that her biopsy would be so bad. She has Adenocarcinoma in her breast. The lady at the vet's office told me the news. She could not even pronounce it. The doctor will not remove the rest of the tumor because it would spread.
We will keep a check on it in two months. The lady said that it was a really bad tumor and fast growing.
I ask about treatment. They did not recommend anything. I am still in shock.
I am asking for prayers for Carmen. I know she is a dog, but she is not just any dog, she is our beloved pet and we love her so much. Some of you may not know that I found her on the road in the country. I stopped to give her some water and in she jumped into my truck. I remember my sister laughing so hard at that dog that day. Little did she know that she would wind up with her. Little did we know how much she would bring to our lives. That was almost two years ago.
It was love at first sight. You could tell that someone had abused her because she would not even look you in the eyes and she cowered when a man was near. Something about this wonderful dog spoke to my heart. She did have a collar on and I thought I would just take her home and call her owner. I came to find out that Carmen was from another state, Louisiana, and the vet did give me her owner's number, but it had been disconnected. We were able to get her age and name from the other vet.
I took the dog to the vet only to discover that she had heart worms. We had her treated. That is when I really came to love this big beautiful dog. Her spirit of love and never giving up. Her silliness, her intellect, her attitude. So it is in this spirit that I pray that Carmen will over come. She has over come so much so far and that is my prayer that she will over come this too.
Have any of you ever heard of this cancer? Please leave me a comment if you have any information to help her.
