Our GSD Kara has Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

Kara on holiday 2009
Two years ago we adopted a beautiful German Shepherd from the Dogs Trust. Kara was the answer to our prayers after losing our elderly shep 5 months previously. Kara is an amazing girl despite her start in life & we adore her.
Today we have been devastated to learn she has Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. She recently developed a bad chest infection which led our vet to take a blood test as she had pale gums. We now have the weekend to decide if we want her to try chemo. Our vet is optimistic but it must be our decision.
Has anyone had experience of CLL & chemo treatment? We are desperate to keep her as long as we can with a good quality of life, we will try all treatments possible.
