Last week on Memorial Day, I was chosen as dogster's diary of the day. Wow - what an honor. I met some great new pals and lots of friends congratulated me. It made me & mom really happy. But more important was that the message about the K9s at war got out there. We're REALLY happy about that!
A couple of days later, I found out that my cousin, Duffy crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He is a 13-1/2 year old Westhighland Terrier that lived with my Uncle & Aunt and he is a brother to one of my pups Maggie. Duffy started acting poorly so they took him to the vet. They found a tumor that took up the entire abdominal cavity that compromised some of the internal organs. At his age he might not have survived the surgery that would only have been exploratory not curative. Because of his pain, everyone decided it would be best to let him cross the bridge. We know he's with Boomer & Annie and lots of other pups from our family. But we know his family misses him a lot. Duffy, you can run free now. We all love you, sweet angel! WE will always remember you, and we'll meet up again.
