Well my worst nightmare is upon us.  Texas A&M oncology dept has informed us that Majic has large cell lymphoma, very aggressive, we have 1 to 4 months with him.  He is already in high stages as it is in all the lymph nodes.  We will not try chemo on him since he is quite old and would not be able to handle it well.  Prednizone and antibiotics and pain meds will be given to aid in his quality of life.
This truly may kill me. I don't think there are enough kleenex in Houston.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

R-C, I am so sorry.  No matter how many times we go through this, it is never, ever easy.  As you know, although the feeling of loss lessens over time, Majic will always hold a special place in your heart. 

(We still have wonderful memories of Misty, our first dog, a German Shepard who crossed Rainbow Bridge in 1979.  Other dogs and cats have resulted in the same tears and loss.  The toughest was when we lost two of our three dogs within months of each other.)

My heart goes out for you & Majic.

I so appreciate your kind words and sympathy, we have gone through it multiple times but it never gets any less painful, I am getting older and this kind of thing is not being tolerated well.  My heart is aching. I know many here understand this pain and I thank you for letting me get some of it out.  I sure do not want to ruin our good thread. But it is a wonderful tribute to our loved babies.
I too have many that crossed the Rainbow Bridge I am sure they are all there waiting for us.
Thanks again

This is the closest thing I have to a pet... a Roomba.

Awe, Lucy is so cute.  She looks very young. 

@Aaron, you have to name your "pet" Roombas.  Here are some suggestions to get you started:
  • Rosie & Mac (Rosie is the Robot Maid on the Jetsons and Mac is her boyfriend)
  • Fred & Wilma (Flintstone); Barney & Betty (Rubble); Pebbles & Bamm Bamm
  • Disney characters:  Mickey & Minnie; Donald & Daffy; etc.
  • Amos & Andy
  • C3PO & R2D2

Sandy in his Cholla stick on his first day home

I teach all my hamsters to sleep on their backs in my hands
Digger in my hands

Oreo like to sleep on my son's tummy while he watched TV

They also use a litterbox, live in big 2 story condos,
& and like to ride in my car (Dusty) when I drive the paper route

Dusty decided that the lost cat was a great place to climb around.
The lost cat only minded when he bumped into the cat's face when he was using him for a fun slide. The cat would give me this look that said "Do you mind ?"
When I was holding the cat relaxed on his back in my arms, the Vet that scan him for an ID chip (he had none) decided she wanted him for herself.

Hamsters only live 2 years so I have had many friends.

(hope these work)

Dusty spent his last few months with 3 legs
since he fell off the bed during one of his explore the jungle sessions.
He was very good about edges but it only takes one fall.

FYI: to XRAY a hamster, they use a cat dental xray setting.
There seems to be no hamster xray settings.

Blue those are great pics, in that first one I am glad you labeled it I thought that was the strangest fur I had ever seen LOL it kinda looked like really long hair that was wet and soapy glad to know it was actually Cholla stick.

That was a really serious break for sure, amazing how they can figure out ways to use technology for even the small pets.

Zep that kitty has won my heart, how precious.

Thanks these are definitely smile worthy.

God does indeed have a sense of humor! In dealing with this cancer diagnosis with Majic I had said I would not be getting another pet for a while, well God thought that was the wrong attitude apparently!  We came home one day from taking Majic for a drive only to find this precious little dog sitting at our door! I have tried everything to locate the owner but none is to be found, my vet even checked for microchips.  Apparently we were meant to be the new parents to this little addition to our family.  Her name Is Milan, she is a minature Italian greyhound, and when you see the pictures of her and Majic together you will understand why I say God has a sense of humor!





they have become best buddies and Majic has shared his bed and toys with her, she quickly ripped his yellow toy open and pulled out the stuffing LOL OH JOY!  she is a puppy still and is not house trained yet more OH JOY!
I am trying to smile at God's new plan for us. :hysterical: :thud:

We experienced something similar so I sincerely believe that Milan wasn't delivered just for you but to ease the time for Majic.

I agree Corrine, she is certainly keeping him more active and distracted.  I just hope it will not be too much for him in the future as he gets worse.  He has stepped on her toe a time or 2 as she danced around him.
I have to think it was meant to be for some reason. I know it has definitely helped slap me out of my depression and funk, I don't have time for that now!
