Arrival Story: Ceilidh has an under-bite, so the breeder could not get her usual asking price. My brother and sister in law got their JRT from the same breeder and they convinced her to let me have Ceilidh. At first I didn't know if I could keep her because my husband has allergies- but it all worked out very well and he had no allergic reaction. We both fell in love with her and wouldn't part with her for the world! :-)
Today I am 5 years old and it's a beautiful day to be alive!
I haven't written in a long while and much has happened to me lately.
A few months back, me and my family found out that I'm a very sick girl. I've been diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer. Because I'm so young and I'm otherwise healthy, my parents decided to have me treated with chemotherapy. I've had several treatments so far and there's no sign of cancer at this time. We are all very happy about that.
The treatments are a little hard on me but it's not as hard as it is on people. I won't lose my hair or feel sick for days on end. I do feel quite tired after my treatments; I think mostly because I'm stressed out about being at the vet's office all day long. That sucks. I'm ever so happy when my family comes to get me and take me home.
I have many treatments still in front of me and I don't look forward to them but I do look forward to many birthdays to come! I plan to live a long time and beat the odds.
To all the pups and peeps out there who are experiencing anything similar with their furry friends, cancer does not have to be a death sentence. They have some remarkable treatment options available, whether they be traditional or holistic; your pet can still have a good life.
I'm having a wonderful time today flinging my new croaking frog around and feasting on the "mutt meatballs" that Granny made for me.
I am a happy girl today and everyday. That's the beauty of being a dog. :))
You're a complete and absolute nut......you're sweet and loving.......you're a fierce predator......you make me laugh so hard sometimes......and shake my head in frustration at other times.....either way you're a true best friend.
