My best friend Jake passed away on 10/08/12 from Lymphoma. He was diagnosed two weeks three weeks prior to his death. I have been racked with guilt because I put him through chemo. I was told 70% of dogs do better with chemo and I wasn't prepared selfishly to let him go. Jake went through two chemo treatments while staying at the hospital. The hospital called me after the second treatment and said I could come pick him up and bring him home until his third treatment. When I arrived and they attempted to bring Jake to me, I noticed he couldn't use his hind legs. He never again would use his hind legs. I tried massaging his legs, did exercises with his legs, bought a pouch to help him walk as I carried him, nothing worked. Finally on Sunday he clenched his mouth shut and refused to eat. I knew it was time. I will never get over the death of my buddy..I still have his brother Zeke and another Diesel Marie and they all mean the world to me, because I view them as my children. My QUESTION is, why would a dog stop walking after chemo treatments? What would cause that?

Hi
everyone,

It's been a long time since I have been logged in maybe over a year or so. Going to start again and hope I can figure things out on the computer. At times I'm slow to learn on these computer's.
