what a goofball! you wouldn't be able to tell that Briar is sick at all. it's obvious that the love he gets from his family makes life worth living. happiness is truly the best medicine. may the rest of his days be full of ball chasin', swimmin, and belly rubs.

He is a beautiful dog, I truly hope the days he has left with you are joy and hug filled. Silly critters just manage to wrap us around their paws. Many hugs

He looks like a blast. Hope he lives forever in spite of his condition. So sad

Briar, you are a wonderful beautiful fellow. Enjoy every moment you have together. They certainly wrap you around their paws. It is SO SAD that they don't live longer but they certainly enjoy every moment to the fullest. WONDERFUL BOY!

What a handsome boy, and I am so, so very sorry to hear that he is sick. Give him plenty of kisses and belly rubs.

Geeez, sorry. I faced the same situation wit a Golden. All the local Vets had no answer. So I wrote to 3 of the top Vet schools to see if there was anything new and experimental. We found a treatment which gave our dog an additional 17 months of QUALITY life.

You do not say what kind of cancer this beautiful baby has. My Bruno has melanoma. We did surgery and then the vaccinations. It costs a lot, money we don't really have so we charged it. They said he'd be gone by Mid-January, he is still w/us. Feed Briar protein, cancer hates protein and thrives on sugar. We are keeping Bruno on antibiotics because he had an infection in the melanoma which is now all over his lower right jaw, but seems to be slowing down. I think the vaccinations definitely helped. He is still eating and happy and alert, even though he is now 14 years old. I wish you all the very best w/Briar. At least you have been given advance notice and can enjoy and appreciate even more all your moments with this wonderful dog!

Love this picture cause Briar looks so happy and proud! No doubt he's brought love and joy to your lives. I know you will savor each and every day with him. And don't worry, he knows you love him too.

Can you come out and play? Briar is gorgeous. His coat positively gleams.

He looks so well and healthy. I am so sorry for you. I pray his last days are peaceful. I know how hard it is to part with such a friend.

Briar is a one-of-a-kind doggy. He sounds like a wonderful companion and all around great guy. With tears in my eyes and a heavy heart I pray that he can enjoy many more happy times with you...please give him an extra hug and kiss from me.

It's very hard to lose a canine friend. I try to comfort myself with the knowledge that my babies have had good lives with people who have loved them and treated them well. When one passes, I tell myself it's a sign that another dog needs me--and I need to go find him! Bless you all.

Briar is handsome!

my chocolate lab in syracuse has cancer too. its tough, all you can do is give them lots of love and kisses. we can learn a lot from dogs to live everyday to the fullest just playing and being happy! many kisses and hugs!!

Briar is a beauty. He looks like a wonderful friend. I don't know where in the country you are but if you are in the northeast, you might want to take Briar up to dog chapel in St. Johnsbury Vermont. It's a great place with a dog chapel (really) and a pond for dog splashing and lots of events for pups and their peeps to enjoy. Good luck.
Mar 19, 2010 MY1&onlyOREO
My heart ached & my eyes cried when I read about Briar and cancer. I lost my beautiful, intelligent, sweet border-collie x lab named Oreo to cancer on May 29, 2008. So, I know how you must feel. I know you are keeping him happy, giving him lots of cuddles and lots of love. You are doing a fantastic job. Just look at him, he is not complaining that he is sick, he is showing his undying love for you!!!!XOXOXOXOXOXOXO
Mar 19, 2010 ckendall
My goodness what a handsome happy goof ball he is!!!! I am so very sorry for what you are going through. I too lost a great furry friend to cancer and still miss him but take great pleasure in knowing he had a good life full of love and left me with many wonderful memories. So continue throwing that ball and taking those walks as long as he wants and store all those memories and enjoy every minute !
Mar 19, 2010 ckendall
Absolutely love this photo!! Too too adorable!!!

Oh Briar you look like you know how to have a good time! Definitely no need to let a few feet of snow keep you from having a good game of fetch. So sorry to hear he is sick. Enjoy the rest of your time with him.
Mar 19, 2010 alexis777
Sorry to hear about the cancer. Just enjoy the time that you have with this precious boy. Take lots of photographs because someday they will become treasured memories.

what a great photo!!! many hugs from Memphis as you enjoy his company......
Mar 19, 2010 arose
Thank you for all the kind comments. Briar is an amazing dog (I know I'm biased). For those who asked, Briar has hemangiosarcoma. He was diagnosed last week after he had an emergency splenectomy. Yesterday he had his stitches removed and got the ok to play again. You wouldn't know Briar is sick if you looked at him. Today he is enjoying chasing the squirrels in the back yard. We are grateful for whatever time he has left and promise to spoil him :)

Briar is so beautiful and photogenic. I'm so sorry to hear about his cancer. We've had the same experience in our household, so I understand what you are going through. Enjoy your days together.
Mar 19, 2010 wheatie mom
Briar is a wonderful, happy dog and we're all so glad he doesn't know he has cancer. Everyday is a day with his people and his ball. Briar will go where all the good dogs go, to a place with water to play in, people to love, balls to chase and friends to sleep close to. We all love you and Briar.

OMG what a great dog!!!! I'm so sorry to hear about Briar's illness. His life may be short, but it looks like it's filled with lots of love & fun. I too lost a young dog years ago and while it hurt like hell I have come to realize that I was twice blessed. First to have him at all and then to have the honor of giving him love while he was here. I pray the same for you.

Mar 19, 2010 txsstyl
I don't know where you live, but if a university school of vetinary medicine is available, take Briar there. We took a golden with severe cancer to Texas A&M vet school, and the doctors were able to extend her life by a couple of years. They were wonderful to her and had access to experimental treatments and drugs. Bless your heart--good luck.
