Hello. I have 2 beautiful rescue pups of unknown breed, names are Jay and Morrisson. Can't imagine my life without them now.
Hi, I have 4 dogs. My youngest labrador is now 8 & I know its not the same as having cancer but my son has been type 1 child diabeties since he was 5 years old. That was 5 years ago he was diagnosed and Zara never leaves his side. She is always with him. Theyve always have a strong bond but i think it has gotten stronger over the past 5 years x
Thanks Mishy18, as I have been off work for 4weeks , I have been very spoilt with dog time 😊
Also had good news that my Herceptin is negative so no chemo just rads and Tamoxifen to get through.
Hello, just found this thread.
Was diagnosed mid March with DCIS ( following 1st routine mammogram) but after masectomy also found 2 x IDC tumours, my partner had noticed our Golden Retreiver sniffing my left breast quite regularly , I assumed I had spilt something nice and smelly on my top!
Yep got the diagnosis but after the masectomy not one sniff so neither of us were worried for the lymph node results to come back, as the dog had ‘told’ us nothing spread anywhere else.
Aren’t dogs just great 😍😍
Wishing all of you, your family and your fur babies a very Merry Christmas. Have a wonderful day!
Warmest and best wishes, Belle xxx ❤️❤️❤️
Hello..... i have 5 dogs, all are miniature pinscher, 3 males and 2 females plus a male cat. My first boy, Turbo, is the only one who waited for me whenever I went for my treatments. He was like superglue, followed me everywhere, keeping a watchful eye on me.... when I was going through chemotherapy, I slept a lot and he also slept with me. The strange thing I noticed was he used to sleep by my left side and after my left mastectomy, he has now sleeps on my right side or nearer to my calf..... seems like he knows. Love them all to bits ❤️
I am planning to adopt a retired military dog. I just want them to give a better home for the last days of their life after serving the country, they do not belong in a cage.
I am beginning to wonder if this is the reason my 15 yr old Patterdale is glued to me! For about the last month or 2 she has been my constant companion and seems to need to touch me or have me in her sights at all times. Got confirmation diagnosis yesterday.
Hi. I have a labradoodle, he kept sniffing my right breast in the spot my tumour is. He is a very cuddly dog, he has inflammatory bowel disease so sleeps in our room under the bed incase he is ill in the night, he has been sneaking onto the bed for a cuddle recently and I keep waking up to find him snuggled next to my legs which is very sweet. I am not sure how 30kg of dog can get onto the bed without waking you up but somehow he manages!
My dog was the same sniffing at my Breast and crying just been diagnosed results from lumpectomy and lymph nodes today.
My dog is wonderful but she really doesnt like a lot of cuddles or snuggling up, never had a dog that didnt like it yet she is so caring and loyal in every other way.
Anyway since I was diagnosed she has certainly sensed that I am in trouble I may be able to hide it from everyone else but not her...she is suddenly so affectionate, sitting up against me while I am on the computer and following me around the house keeping an eye on me, coming for cuddles and pressing her head against me..its so comforting and quite out of character for her.
I feel lucky to have her especially now
I agree with you about dogs and them 'knowing things' Sonya. Our two are certainly very perceptive to our emotions and health. They have such a accute senses, that we as humans don't possess. X
We are one big happy family again. My hubby has come home as he finished his last big chemo but he will still have few moor little ones as day care.
Our dog is happy and we happy to see him happy.
Love to all
Our family dog is so sad all you got to do is to look at his face and you can see it. I have to leave him at home alone and he is not use to it but unfortunatley my hubby is in hospital. I am sure he bites himfelf as well due to stress as he knows things are not right at home. I feel for him.
Just like to say my dog Japanese Akita did the same I was sitting on a chair and all of a sudden he runnup to me and gone for my breast but not to hurt and I said to him I am your mummy but not that kind to giveyou milk. 2 weeks later I was diagnosed with SBC. and now he did the same thing with my hubby. He keptsniffing his neck my husband now in paitent at hospital with Burkitts Lymphoma. If only dogs can talk........
Yes Madamejojo, I do.
Whilst I was waiting for the initial diagnosis of my !st breast lump, I was out hoovering my car one day, croutching into the open front door to do the footwell and my neighbours dog, a black lab ,who never gave me the time of day, sidled up and kept nuzzling into my right armpit. Didn't think anything of it until after I had the nasty news.
Yeh, I do believe they can sense such things.
Oh I definitely think animals can sense when we're not very well.After each Chemo session I had, I was laid up on the couch and my dog would lay on top of my duvet and wouldn't move the whole time I lay there. Very loyal indeed. But she is feeling poorly now and only just back from the vets yesterday, so it's now my turn to look after her and we snuggled together on the couch with the duvet once more last night,so I could keep an eye on her. Love her, I do
