Arwen, thanks for the links and advice. It turns out that Hugh has pancreatitis. I heard it's caused by a high-fat diet. Oddly, I haven't been feeding Hugh a high-fat diet All my dogs eat oats+apples+sweet potatoes (sometimes I add a little bit of canned food)... the vet said it could be idiopathic...

Anyway, Hugh is back home. He is looking much better. It's nice to have more than one dog because it can be funny to watch them interact. Hugh likes to lick Halle. Halle gets so mad at him, but never bites (just growls... she's always been gentle). Also, I don't want my dogs to be lonely when I'm out. I know that animals do get depressed.

My silky terrier is eating the same diet and she has perked up. Her coat looks shinier. I will try to feed the same stuff to Hugh. It will be tough. Hugh is extremely stubborn. I have to syringe in some vegetable juice and I know he will growl and snap at me. You know Chihuahuas... they always think they're the boss...

To be honest, I *have* set up a crowdfunding campaign. It only covers the cost of Halle's CT scan. I haven't posted it here, because I posted it on another site and got banned (forever)... I have taken a lot of flak while begging people for money... I've never sought financial help until after Halle's diagnosis... There are people telling me, "If you can't afford to have a pet, you shouldn't have one." But, I didn't expect my pet to get cancer.

And then there are those who think I am being cruel for allowing Halle to live instead of putting her out of her misery. I know dogs are tough and try not to show pain. It's survival instincts. But, still, there are always subtle signs (which I am observing closely for). Halle is still a happy, lively dog. Here is a video of her I took outside the animal hospital, before she went for biopsy: https://youtu.be/mAeK_zwr1bA

She also eats like a champ. I'm not putting her down... I'm not giving up on her.

Bryansgirl, that's so heartbreaking... having to lose a 3-y/o dog... cancer's a bitch... I can't tell you how much I hate it. >=(

The cost of veterinary fees boggles my mind, too... it's so unnecessarily expensive...

lol, @ Hugh the little feisty old man. I have to say i havent got much experience with small dogs. i have grown up with farm dogs, and then had huskys, the smallest i ever had, was a chunky red cocker spaniel.

sorry to hear you had a bad experience with fundraising, some forums are really strict, and it is allways better to pm a moderator first, if you are not sure.
dont worry what other people say about your dogs, if i remember correctly, you suffer from depression, so they are certainly cheaper than therapie. if you are on facebook or twitter, make a page on there. there is allways ways.

you said you wouldnt let Halle suffer, some people are just to judgemental, dont take their negativity on board. i have 4 cats and 2 dogs, and they have been a godsend to me many times over, so they deserve every penny spent on them, the unconditional love they give.

Hi, I'm sorry for the late reply. I am working on weekends now. Trying to find a weekday stay-at-home job so I can spend more time with Halle.

I have created a facebook page www.facebook.com/sweethallepugminipincher

It's a page created to chronicle our cancer-fighting journey. For those interested, do 'like' that page. We can chat and share cancer-fighting recipes there.

Arwen, I love big dogs, but, where I live, big dogs aren't allowed in apartments. The smaller the dog, the more unstable. Have you seen Cesar Milan's 'Chihuahuas from Hell'? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0tFBg2Eavg

Yeah, I love Halle more than anyone else. I would never let her suffer. With her current diet, she is breathing a lot better. She doesn't need to sniff Frankincense oil in order to fall asleep now, but I still let her sniff it because studies show that it causes cancer cells to self-destruct (it's inconclusive, but, worth a try).

Yes, the dog in my avatar is Paige, the one who helps me through depression, although she has more of a proper beard now .

I wish I could help you with more practical advice. I've never been in your situation so I'm afraid I don't have specific advice for you. I really wish I did. I do keep thinking about you and your dogs though. You and them are in my mind at least a few times a day.

Also: is that a fact about the smaller the dog the more unstable? I thought it was merely due to more people spoiling smaller dogs.
