i have 2 other dogs and shes the one who was very close to my great dane that just died. its been really hard for her, and i often find her sleeping in my deceased dogs favorite spots. ive been giving her a great deal of attention to sort of ease the mourning that i believe my dog is going thru. .

my other dog is a small 10 pound poodle and never got along with my great dane Texas. believe it or not, my poodle was the one who always started the fights,. great danes really are gentle giants.
Oh no, a Dane? I adore them. I especially love Dane puppies with those huge clumpy and awkward feet and flopping ears. They really are the most gentle souls.

i didnt know my dane as a puppy i wish i did . i rescued her from a shelter several months ago. i was looking for an older dog and they told me that she was a puppy around 10 months. something told me that she wasnt that young even though she was soooo playful and was acting like a pup.

she wanted to be near me all the time. wanted chew toys, played and played and omg she was so active!

i thought she was full of life but little did i know she was dying rite before my eyes.. her diabetes and her blindness was so sudden and so aggressive. the vet estimated her to be around 7yrs old..which is usually around the time diabetes starts to show up in dogs. anywhere from 6-9 yrs of ag is the average.

Texie had incredibly long legs, pointy elbows lol and omg HUGE paws, she had to be a cute puppy, but arent they all?!
i love dogs so much.

My Labrador had more fatty mass tumors than I could count. It started with one on his side. We had that one biopsied. We never biopsied any of the others. They never turned to cancer. He lived to 16 years old.

I'm sorry to hear about your Great Dane. It sounds like she was a fantastic dog who was lucky to find you.

I have a 12 year old small dog that in the past month has gotten a lot of lumps all over. Started with one on his side then his back and now on his nose, behind his ear, hips, etc. came up so fast, some large, small. Now he has trouble jumping, walking. Was very active. I have to show him his water bowl and food. Doesn't eat like he did. Worried. He is my Buddy, my Baby. Is there help here.

Wagglebud- There is no help here- we are not vets. Your dog needs to see a vet - now. He is in serious trouble. Please call for an appointment today. There is no time to waste.

The only one that can tell you what a lump is is a vet. When Jazz developed a large lump on the front of her chest I had a feeling it was cancer as it was different then the Lymphomas she had had in the past.

My vet was booked right up to leaving on vacation in 3 days so I saw one of his partners who keep assuring me it was nothing even when I told her I had this gut feeling about it. She went to aspirate it and said "Oh the syringe will fill up with greasy looking fluid and I will take a look and it but I do not expect to see anything serious." She stuck the needle in and got very little fluid and even then kept telling me it would be nothing and that she would call me later with results. My gut feeling was still saying this one was cancer.

I got home to a ringing phone and it was the vet saying the cells look abnormal and she was sending them to pathology . The next day that report came in and it was a nerve sheath sarcoma (cancer) so we called the oncologist that had done palliative IMRT on Dash and he said have it removed ASAP. I was a little upset that this vet had been so insistent that it was nothing and was not sure I wanted her to do the surgery so while I was considering telling her so my regular vet heard about it and said he would do the surgery as he had a little time before leaving on his trip so he did and he felt her got clean margins.

I tell the story to show you that even a vet can not always properly ID a lump the only way to know for sure is an aspiration or a biopsy as no one here can tell you what it is.
