I've had him since he was 7 weeks and he's now 15. He still acts so happy and relatively full of energy, good appetite too. But lately he's been urinating like crazy and extremely thirsty. I figured he was diabetic now, but no, his Vet took X-rays yesterday and he has a HUGE mass over his adrenals AND his spleen is 5xs the size of a normal spleen. He's very such. I don't think surgery is his best option given his age. So my options are as follows: euthanasia soon before he begins to suffer or let nature take its course, but provide pain mess when needed. Idedlly, he'll pass peacefully on his own in his sleep and not suffer. But I'm so worried that he's going to turn for the worse quickly and that he'll be crying in pain from his spleen or tumor rupturing when I'm not home and he'll suffer and be so scared and die by himself. I'm also worried that if I get him euthanized soon, that I'm taking away his life before he's ready and that maybe he has more time left. I don't know what to do or when to do it or if I should do anything but keep him comfortable as possible for now. But right now, he still acts like a crazy puppy. I can't euthanize him when he acts like this, but his Vet basically said he's a ticking time bomb. If I do euthanize at some point, it will be at home with the Vet coming to my place. But when do I do this or should I?
My dog is not doing well and I could really use advice, can anyone help?

That's about the lifespan of a dog give or take a couple of years depending on the breed.
