Arrival Story:
When I bought my home, the previous owner left Abby. They had several other animals that they liked better & they took them. The previous owner had gotten Abby from the animal shelter,and she had made comments to the neighbors that Abby was uncontrollable. Nothing was further from the truth, Abby knows full obediance commands and is very sweet. She was starved for attention and had discovered that any attention was better than none. I believe she had been started as a hunting dog and turned out to be gun-shy, thus ending up in the shelter. If her former owner had only taken the time, she would have found out what a wonderful dog she had. But fortunately for Abby, she lives with me know in her forever home, where she is spoiled rotten!

I became an angel today...

I became an angel today. Mom thought long & hard about what would be the best thing for me. It wasn't an easy decision, but she did what she felt was right. I became an angel today. Today I am able to run again, to chase those squirrels again. I became an angel today. Today I am free of the pain that was taking over my body. I became an angel today. Today my mom gave me the gift of selfless love and granted me peace. I became an angel today. Today is my first day at the rainbow bridge and I get to spend time with my beloved sister Annie. I became an angel today.

 

Lost my spark

Mom is getting really worried about me. I sprained my right front leg Monday night. I got pain meds yesterday to help me cope with that. Well, when mom got home yesterday evening I was having problems with my left rear leg. Let me tell you, it's hard for a dog to get up using only two legs. Mom's been helping me up, but when mom is a work... well, it isn't pleasant.

Mom is thinking that my time is getting near, I've sort of lost my spark. Mom is still doing everything she can to keep me comfortable and she's keeping a close watch on me, or at least as close as she can. She says she just wants me to be happy & comfortable, never in pain or suffering.

 

Ouch

I went back to the vet again this morning. When I turned around too fast last night (I was afraid I might miss a treat), I slipped & fell. At first I seemed like I was okay, but by this morning my right front leg was hurting & I was limping. My muscles are really weak due to the cancer & using only 3 legs makes it very hard for me to get around. Mom wanted to make sure that I had only sprain my leg & that it wasn't something worse. So, Dr Kris hooked me up with some mild pain meds. Hopefully that will ease the pain in my leg so I can use it a little. She seems to think that I'm doing as good as I possibly can under the circumstances. I am eating lots of food, so that is a plus!
