Maybe you remember Sheridan, the dog that captured everyone’s attention a year ago with his diagnosis of bone cancer. His humans, Morgan and Zach made a video to show their beloved dog’s battle against the disease.
They were trying to show the world that such a diagnosis didn’t mean just waiting for their dog to die. They wanted to make the time he had left, the best possible time with an excellent quality of life.
His diagnosis of canine osteosarcoma came on July 2014. After that, he had his right forelimb amputated and six rounds of chemotherapy to slow down the cancer. In such conditions the average time a dog lives is between 8 months to a year, but Sheridan managed to live 14 months.
But it really is the quality of life that matters, and those 14 months he lived to the fullest. His humans made sure of that.
What you are about to see is the way a dog with a terminal disease can live when he gets the change to fight. You will see his last trip to New Orleans and how he completely enjoyed it. He had delicious food and deserts, he went to the “Three legged dog tavern”, he enjoyed his time in the National Park and he had plenty of car rides to enjoy the air on his face.
These are Sheridan’s last days and prepare your tissues because you won’t be able to control your tears.
