Summer of Change: part 2

Many of the changes that we have been going through this summer are for the better. Challenging but knowing the outcome is going to be good makes it easier.

There is one change that has made all of our hearts heavy over the past few weeks. Our sweet girl is very sick. She is pretty much ridden with mass cell tumors(cancer) all throughout her body.  She is on a prescription medicine which seems to be helping some. She is at least eating these days.  I cook her eggs, chicken and hamburger, peanut butter sandwiches and cheese. All her favorite things. We have totally given up the dog food.

We are just trying to make sure she is comfortable and not in any pain.   I am not sure how long she will hold on but we are planning on making the days good for her. She has given us so much over the  past 11 years.  She is my first baby whom I will love always.

The boys are doing OK with it. They try to talk a bit more sweetly to her and make sure she gets lots of kisses and hugs.

We are just taking it one day at a time,  and savoring every moment with her.


  1. So sorry! He is lucky to spend his days in peace in comfort enveloped in the love of your family. Enjoy every minute of this precious time.


  2. I am so sorry about Gritty, Rose. I did not realize she had gotten so sick so quickly. Your a great dog Mom, and she knows how very loved she is. Hugs, this part is really hard.

  3. ((((hugs)))) to you my friend. XO

  4. Thanks for all your comments. It is really hard. I just lay with her at night and give her hugs.

  5. We are thinking of all of you with love and shared sorry. The pain of losing a pet is large. She will always be a part of our family. A large hole will be left when she is gone. We love all of you dearly. I will always remember her table surfing, eating all the chicken thighs Grampy made and the wonderful dog she has been to your children. Love, XXXOOO

  6. My heart is aching right now. We have been through this with two of our dogs in the last few years, it wasn't cancer, but little strokes. It was hard.

    Sending hugs and thoughts your way. Hang in there.

  7. Gritty! Sending lots of love to you guys. What a sweet sweet doggie.
