Arrival Story:
Hi……I was born at a Puppy Mill….shame on those people for putting us through such horrible inhumane acts all for money! Please don’t buy from Puppy Mills…Rescue until we all have homes. Fortunately, I was one of the lucky ones, as a very nice couple bought me and brought me home to live with them…..I was just a wee pup!!! I had found my forever home….or at least I thought I had….little did I know what the future had in store for me. I guess most of don’t really know what the future holds….we just have to take it a day at a time and hope for the best, right?? I lived with my mommy and daddy, two other Boston Terriers and two cats. I had a great family….even had a litter of puppies ….I was one happy girl. My first family named me Luna. One day I woke up to find my whole life changed…..my mommy and other fur family were homeless living in a car…no money, no food….no hope…what the heck happened to my life. My former mommy explained to me she and my daddy divorced and I guess things got really ugly and we were left to fend for ourselves….the situation for us did not look good. My previous mommy tried the best she could to care for us in the car, but it did not work so well. I was taken away from the only family I had known and ended up in foster care. Why did this happen and where was my family? I became one sad girl. My foster mom was concerned about my level of anxiety and called me her shadow. I was truly having a very difficult time adjusting to losing my family and going into foster care….my smart foster mommy knew I had the best chance at healing and bonding again, if I left foster care quickly and found a family of my own. I was taken to the vet and spayed, vaccinated, etc.….and told you will soon find a family…..I was so confused as I already had a loving family. I felt so badly for the pain my previous mommy must have experienced losing us all…..I can’t imagine how much it must have hurt her. I pray she is alright and knows I am alright too. Emails went out over the pet rescue groups and sites with a plea to “take me quick” as I needed a chance to bond and find a forever family…my depression was getting worse. Imagine that…silly me, depressed…but I truly was. You see…Boston Terriers are very loyal by nature and to lose your family and home was very traumatic. I did love my foster family so much and I thank them for rescuing me. A Golden Angel from afar visited me in a dream and told me not to worry….my new family would soon be coming to get me….. My new family was not ready to open their hearts and lives to another doggie so soon after losing their beautiful Sissy Girl…. (my guardian angel)….they also knew they had to help as that is what they do….always helping others! They adopted me! It was really rocky at first because they have a new rescued special needs kitty, Ivy Joy, who was not fond of me at all. This new family was not sure they were going to be able to make it work…and they had to be very careful of Ivy Joy’s needs. Boy, she was one mad kitty for a while! Phew! I am a sweet girl and never growl, bark, chase…anything…simply roll over in submission….but Ivy Joy let me know she is Princess of the household. Another problem came about….My new mommy is really allergic to me. She has allergies to doggies and kitties…always has, but usually she works through them. Nope, not with me….phew!! She has been really miserable and struggling with her symptoms. Daddy is bathing me regularly to help with the allergies….I was scared they would not keep me…but not so, my new mommy said, “its only allergies….” There was no way this family was going to abandoned me after all I had been through….my new mommy said she would rather be miserable than leave me again….wow….I knew I will be loved and cared for in this new family. I am leashed trained, crate trained, potty trained, and very sweet….when walking with my mommy I still look at all the cars and people as they go by……I hope my previous family is okay. So….as the golden angel predicted….I found my forever family. I feel blessed. I am still a little shadow and very insecure…learning I will not be abandoned takes time and lots of love… I stay with my grandparents while my parents work….so fun….and guess what, Ivy Joy likes me now! Thank you to my new family and to Ivy Joy for sharing her home with me…..and if anyone out there sees my previous mommy and family….let them know I am okay and happy…everything is going to be great.

Merry Christmas and Happy-Healthy New Year!!!

"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."

~author unknown

We love you all and thank you from the very depths of our hearts for the gifts of frienship.. Thank you for all the support as I go on my cancer journey.....and for helping my mommy smile more....

Here is a special poem a dear angel friend gave me.....


"I AM YOUR DOG…..


I am your dog, and I have a little something I’d like to whisper in your ear

I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life

Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me. I see the love in your eyes

What do you see in my eyes? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask.

I ask you to slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that computer screen, of others of my kind, passing away. Sometimes we die young…and oh so quickly and suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to notice until the very end, when we look at you with our grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free over the Rainbow Bridge.

I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just “one more day” with me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor and look into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as “alpha” or as “trainer” or even “Mom and Dad” – come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another’s eyes and talk.

I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or our walks together, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a “dog on two feet”. I know what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.

Now, come sit with me, here on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper into my ear. Speak with your heart, with your soul, and I will know your true self.

We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short"

Chemo has started....

Luna Rose was such a sweet girl....very long day for us both. This is schedule will be tiring, but worth it. She is glad to be home and is my cuddle bug......they suspect she will be having side effects in 1-2 days and we will start meds tomorrow to help....next treatment is Friday after Christmas. We are going to be even more tired and more financially challenged, but that is okay.....praying Luna Rose does well.

Poor Honey Bun is feeling like a step child and does not understand why I take her to my parents in the morning and drive off with Luna....Honey was distant and going into her crate....she is confused and I don't want our bond to be hurt....gosh, our animals are so sensitive to change. I am juggling the best I can...

Everyone, please learn from Luna Rose....Mast cell is common, unpredictable and can be fatal....it does not have to come in the form of a lump, bump or tumor....it can be atypical, like hers, and only appear like tiny specs of dry itchy skin.....please get all those little places on your dogs checked and if Mast Cells are present...get them removed. While some are slow growing....others are very aggressive, like Luna's....no one would have ever imagined hers to even be mast cell....let alone the highest grade and most aggressive form. Never.....Cancer be gone. Please keep sending power of the paw for my girl.

 

Update on Luna Rose....written by her mommy

Good Morning!

We thank you for all the purrs and power of the paw.....we feel it and it is amazing. It helps us be strong. I apologize I did not update you all last night, but it was late when we got home and we had a lot to discuss and figure out....I truly am not sure if anyone can figure anything out with cancer....mast cell cancer is one of the most unpredictable types of cancer.....apparently, it has a mind of its own and treating it can be difficult, to say the least.

Luna Rose was an incredible trooper when I took her in yesterday......she marched in with her ball in he mouth and was ready to go....it was like she was saying "I am going to beat cancer....bring it on." The staff was so gentle and kind....I have never left Luna before and it was very hard to walk out the door and leave for work. Yes, I did call and check on her a couple of times....

So far, all of Luna's tests have come out well....the vet does not anticipate the rest of the pathology to come back with any cancer cells in her lymph system, liver or spleen....but says these aggressive little things can hide anywhere and she will not feel comfortable until we know for sure.....The vet said we need to start chemo immediately and has her scheduled for tomorrow.....wow.....she was even ready to start yesterday, but we wanted time to discuss it and wait on the rest of the results...trying to figure out what is best for Luna....and making sure our decisions are not about us.
The vet says the histology won't be back for about a week and we will may have to switch the type of chemo. The vet said the cancer is so aggressive she is not comfortable waiting until the histology comes back.....with that being sad....she does not feel Luna's cancer is curable, but manageable and having chemo is a must if we want to give her a chance at more cancer free time....she said without treatment, the studies show and her experience is, Luna's cancer will take her in 5-6 months as it is so fast and aggressive....with treatment we hope to gain "years..." The reality is....we simply don't know how her body will respond.

There are lots of special protocols in caring for her after chemotherapy and it is a full-time job.....we sat down with my parents last night to go over everything with them to make sure they can handle it all....it is a lot to ask of anyone....of course, they are more than willing, as Luna Rose is their grandgirl!!! Gosh, I wish I didn't have to work.....but I do!!! Everyone thus far, is on board that we must try.......and we will let Luna Rose dictate the journey.

If she becomes too ill or too stressed and cant be her happy joyful ball loving self.....we will stop the treatment and simply let her be until it is time to fly......to earn her wings. What am I saying....She is already an angel on earth to us....and to many.

I simply cant believe this is happening.....I look at this beautiful loving companion......she is so strong and full of life.....she is young and ever so special.....her spirit is amazing and we connected the moment we met. I hate this for her....it is all about her.....my heart is aching....her daddy is devastated.....this little girl is our heart.

The most scary part is....some of the chemo drugs can have some really bad effects.....and it terrifies me. Many doggies do fine, while others do not......My heart wants her to be here forever....and the reality is.....she may leave us soon. I pray we are making the right decision....to give her this chance and if it is not right for her, at least we know we gave it our all......I hope Luna Rose agrees.

Honey Bun did not do well yesterday without Luna....while she worships my parents and loves being there....mom said she curled up on the couch and didn't move most of the day....she didn't bark, play......she was sad....she was thrilled when Luna came home....Ivy Joy too. We are all are being affected by this...

Please send healing love and power of the paw....we have a very long journey ahead. If the reports come back this afternoon saying the cancer has spread, we probably wont proceed.....Luna has been different the past month......I think she knows and has been telling me. She is so happy this morning....playing....loving her ball....such a sweet girl....We love you Luna Rose....always and forever, thank you for rescuing us!!!

Our hearts are connected by paws....always.
