Heart-warming Lessons Learned from the Dog Cancer Journey

Did a dog cancer diagnosis bring you and your dog closer together?

For many of us, hearing that our dog has cancer changes our lives in an instant.

Questions arise such as:
How many more walks we will enjoy?
How much time will I have to cuddle with my pooch?
Is there something I could have done differently?

Beyond the questions, however, many dog lovers experience a heart-warming journey that brings them and their dogs closer together.

Valuable life lessons and opportunities are gained from the experience of caring for a sick dog.

Perhaps you discovered something new about yourself.
Perhaps you gained a new insight into the human-canine bond.
Perhaps you experienced deeper levels of fear or love than you ever would have expected.

We would like to hear your stories. Please share them on our Facebook page  so that other dog lovers can gain from your experience and we can all benefit from celebrating the life lessons of the dog cancer journey.

Post your stories on our Facebook page (or comment below) —and please share with other dog lovers.
