My mom went away for two whole weeks. During that time, the food ladies and Uncle Carlo looked after me. I don't like anyone to feed me except mom. She knows how to do it the best. I ate for Uncle Carlo, though, because he put some yummy baby food in with my dog food! I also got bread and peanut butter, and some Ensure and Rebound too. I still managed to lose some weight, though.
Even though Uncle Carlo and the Food Ladies tried their best with me, I was so weak when mom came home that I could hardly stand or walk. Mom thought it might be the end. But since I've put a little weight on, I'm walking better now. And mom bought me a new bed made with memory foam! It's supposed to help my joints. But I peed in it so I have to wait until it's clean again.
In sadder news, I just found out that one of my heroes, Baylea, a Golden Retriever, succumbed to her oral cancer last month. I looked up to her because she was living with cancer just like me! Don't worry Baylea's mom, dad and brother. When I get to doggie heaven, Baylea and I will play together!
I have large, golf-ball sized tumours taking up about 60% of my lungs. That's what happens when cancer metastasizes. Aside from having a hard time keeping weight on, no one would even know, I don't even cough or have shortness of breath. I am still a happy dog and my mom has learned to take it one day at a time.
