CAVES called this morning. They said Feebs was relatively comfortable throughout the night, but very lethargic and not eating. They also suggested that we may want to leave her there another day because she was going to be difficult for us to handle.Continue reading
We dropped Feebs at the vet’s office at 8:30 AM this morning. I have to tell you I was having serious doubts about whether we had made the right decision and it was really hard to walk out the door knowing she had no idea what was about to happen.Continue reading
Phoebe’s amputation has been scheduled for July 23.
I’m anticipating I won’t have a lot of extra time in the weeks after Phoebe’s amputation, so I’ve been in a cleaning frenzy today. It still looks like Hurricane Helga went through the house, but it’s improving.Continue reading
I have my legs back under me where they belong, pardon the pun. After a long chat with our vet, I’m convinced that giving Phoebe a chance to live the rest of her life as a tripawd is the only clear choice.Continue reading
The reality of Phoebe’s cancer has sunk in and I now know we don’t have time on our side. Canine osteosarcoma is an aggressive, fast growing cancer. If it spreads to her lungs, we’re done.Continue reading
We’ve always assumed we’ll live longer than our pets. It’s just the natural order of things. But we also hope with all our hearts that they’ll live out their full canine lives happy and painless.
And when you least expect it, someone drops the C-bomb. Our Leonberger Phoebe has been diagnosed with canine osteosarcoma in her left metatarsus.
It’s Party Time! http://t.co/pedY2tu1V4 #pamperedchef #feedingamerica
Pampered Chef Party, that is.
First up… Feeding America is a domestic hunger relief organization that helps provide hungry families with the food they need through a huge network of food banks across the country. The keyword here is “domestic”, folks. Now that summer is here, we have an untold number of kids who aren’t getting the benefit of the discounted breakfasts and lunches provided when school’s in session.
Then, there’s the rest of the show… loads of cooks tools and fabulous stuff for everyday and entertaining pleasure for both indoors and patio.
So come join the party! Have fun!
