The Last Few Weeks....

Hey all! Long time no post. Sorry for falling off the map. The entire month of November has been a mess for me. I lost both of my dogs this month, so I've been less than inspired to post a blog post or even polish my nails.

I lost my dog Milo, to Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia on the 16th. Even though he had a five day emergency animal hospital stay which included blood transfusions and a chemotherapy drug, he wasn't strong enough to pull through. He was only five years old. We lost our second dog Ben, this morning. He had become immobile within a week's time due to arthritis in his back and an x-ray at the vet's office showed a mass in his stomach, which they suspected to be cancerous. They confirmed he was in immense pain and we had to let him go. They stated even if we bought him more time with additional pain medicine, they weren't sure how long he would make it and it wouldn't be fair to him. He was nine years old.

I basically just wanted to say that I'll be back, I just need a little time to get my thoughts and feelings together. I have a post scheduled for this morning, but I don't want to say I will be posting regularly until I know for sure.

Thanks for sticking around.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about your pups. They surely are adorable and sweet. Last year I lost my family dog of 10 years, and it still isn't the same without him. Some people don't realize how animals are a huge part of our lives. I am very sorry for your loss, I'll keep you in my thoughts.
