Having a heat wave in Cape Town and it has been over a week now. Mum gets into the pool the moment she gets home from work and just wallows there. Not much fun for Zack and I because we only swim in rivers and sea and do not like the pool thing. Mum fills a big plastic sand pit with water for us and we play in that and when we are finished, she uses the water for her garden. We cannot leave the water in our plastic pool overnight as our garden is full of frightening toxic toads called Leopard Toads. They are endangered so we have to respect that but Mum does not want to attract any more with our water because if we do happen to put our mouths on them we could get very ill. She also has to put the pool cover on her big pool because the silly things get stuck in the pool if she does not. The heat is making me very tired but I have made up my mind to get 100% well again and the vet says he is very very pleased with my progress.

We are all trying to not be very sad at home. Mum found a big lump on my back leg that I was chewing at last week and took me to the vet - they took a biopsy and say that I have cancer. Mum was devastated, she says that it's not fair when I am only three. She said that she would not put me through chemotherapy in spite of wanting me to be alive as many minutes, hours, days of her life as possible. The vet says that my body is trying to fight the cancer on its own and so he and Mum are monitoring it. I am a really feisty girl and they are starting to think that I might just win this battle. Brother Zack is also very worried. He normally sleeps in Mum's room, but since a few days before our Mum knew about the tumor, he started lying next to me where I sleep (I guard the front door at night - I choose to be there).

It's my second Birthday and the sun is shining. It got light at 05:00 this morning with the birds singing and squirrels cavorting around the garden (followed very closely by a happy bouncing Zack!). Mum made me a special breakfast with gravy and took us to the beach for a quick romp in the sea before she had to go to work. What a treat, we normally only get to the beach on weekends. I'm looking froward to being two because things seem to be getting easier to cope with as I think I am wiser each year.
