All in the Family


German Shepherd Dog / Rottweiler

Rex came into my life in early May 1999. I went to the Humane Society looking for a little puppy who would grow into a little dog. Rex had other ideas for me. He was my best friend and constant companion. He loved car rides, ice cream, and looking at cows. On January 24, 2010 he was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma. I had the privilege to care for him for another 7 weeks where he taught me so many life lessons. Rex died on the morning of March 13, 2010. But he will live forever in my heart.

Rex, you have touched so many lives here on Daily Puppy. I've just been looking at your pictures and shedding a few tears. Rest in peace, sweet baby boy.

Margie...I'm so sorry for your loss. My Basset Hound Gus,(AKA Ding Dong) had 4 lesions near his penis removed last year that were hemangiosarcoma. This can occur subcutaneous (skin) and systemic. (Internally) I've been giving him daily spirulina to shrink any tumors, Haelan 951 which is a soy based liquid to keep any cancer cells from spreading and milk thistle for a healthy liver. Every morning when I wake I thank God for the greatest gift I have been given. I dread when the day comes when I have to say good bye. He will be going in for a chest and abdominal xray next week. You did everything you could for your boy and he knew you loved him. Please email me if you have any advice.

So sorry to hear about Rex. My dog Briar was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma just little over a week ago so I understand your heartache first hand. Rex looks like such a wonderful dog. I know he is enjoying ice cream and looking at the cows in doggie heaven. Maybe he and Briar will meet and be friends :)

I am soo sorry for your loss of beautiful Rex. I've been looking at your posts and I know that hemangiosarcoma is a horrible horrible thing. Rex will be in a better place now, so don't worry. Most of the owners on the dailypuppy know how hard it is to lose a dog - especially one like Rex. Lots and love to you both. RIP Rex.

I'm so extremley sorry for your loss! It was recent so you must still be hurting. You can't believe how much recent deaths shake me - ANY deaths really! Again, RIP handsome Rex. You will see your family again someday. *Precious*

Margie, My heart goes out to you still a year later because I know this will never leave you. Your beloved "Rex" will remain in your heart. I am sorry this is late but I just looked you up after finding out you lived in Vermont, my neighboring State. I lost my Great Dane, Miss Katie on Aug 2, 2010 and it seems like yesterday. God Bless you and warm and healing hugs. Elizabeth and Mini Cooper in NY~
