It’s been 3 years since I updated this blog, this maybe my last post. On June 12, 2107 at about 9:00 in the morning Daisy flew over the rainbow bridge. She finally had succumbed to the cancer that she had fought for several years. Hemangiosarcoma, initially the growths were on the skin and fairly easily removed, some via laser and some under anesthesia. This battle went on for 5 years, with the hope that these growths would never metastasize. In October of 2016 after an ultrasound, we found out that the cancer had spread to her spleen and it was removed. She was given about 3-6 months at that point.

Saying good-bye to Daisy was one of the hardest things I have had to do. I rescued her after Natalie died, because Natalie’s wish was to rescue a white pitbull and name her Daisy. Daisy helped me heal from the grief of losing a child, and brought me joy. Daisy and I did a lot together including obtaining her CGC, Canine Good Citizen, it was important to me she be a breed ambassador.

Daisy spent her last day at home and the vet came to our house, she fell asleep peacefully in her bed with Roscoe laying next to her.

I was lucky to have such a friend.

Hi friends. I just wanted you all to know tomorrow I am going to have another surgery to remove some little spots on my belly.  Mom says they are little skin cancers. This is my 3rd surgery over the last few years to have some of these pesky spot removed. Mom says thats why I am not allowed to sun bathe anymore with out something called SPF50! She also mentioned the cone again, I hope she means ice cream cone.  So remember all you white doggies to wear SPF50 when you go out in the sun!

Now back to our regularly scheduled nap time!

Dreaming of ice cream cones…..

We have some sad news today

As many of you know we are big fans of our friends over at Bad Rap. They do so many amazing things for pibbles, and have rescued so many in need. Last October they took in an emaciated pit bull who was later diagnosed with lymphoma. A wonderful Lady took her in to give a the best life however long. Thank you to Nice Lady.

Birdy had alot of loving to do before she flew home.

Mom had a huge soft spot for this girl, and followed her blog religiously. On Tuesday we found out Birdy wasn’t doing so well and her departure for home was eminent, today at 4. This morning she flew home a bit ahead of schedule.

Good Bye Sweet Birdy. We loved you from afar, we watched you love those around you and enjoy your sweet time with Nice Lady and OM.
