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.

Miss Moosey

I have never been lost before, at least that I can remember. Mom always makes sure that the gate is locked, and only once did I go out the front door without permission. Mom made me come back right away!

Today I read a story about a man who was lost, and his dog Miss Moosey, found him! I hope that if I ever get lost my mom can find me. I know that I would find her if she was lost because she smells nice, usually. I would be able to smell her.

I think today Miss Moosey is my hero. I you can read, like I can you can read the whole story here and See a video of Miss Moosey!

Rescue teams had been searching for Schultz since Monday but were unable to locate him until his dog, Miss Moosey, emerged from the woods Tuesday afternoon. Nancy Lyon, a member of New England K-9 Search and Rescue, gained Miss Moosey’s trust by sitting and offering food.

Lyon was able to put a leash on the dog, who started leading searchers back into the woods. Miss Moosey led them to a spot on the trail, and a K-9 with the Fish and Game Department was able to pick up Schultz’s scent from there. He was about 830 feet off the trail.

Tiny Dog Saves Baby From Rattlesnake

MASONVILLE, Colo. – Zoey is a Chihuahua, but when a rattlesnake lunged at her owners’ 1-year-old grandson, she was a real bulldog.

Booker West was splashing his hands in a birdbath in his grandparents’ northern Colorado back yard when the snake slithered up to the toddler, rattled and struck. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites.

“She got in between Booker and the snake, and that’s when I heard her yipe,” said Monty Long, the boy’s grandfather.

The dog required treatment and for a time it appeared she might not survive. Now she prances about.

“These little bitty dogs, they just don’t really get credit,” Booker’s grandma Denise Long told the Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald.

I am very glad Zoey is doing fine, rattlesnake bites can be deadly. Especially for little dogs!
