I wanted to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for sending me gifts and for thinking of me on my Rainbow Bridge Day. I truly appreciate it.

Sending you love from the Bridge,
Angel Doo

My Sweet Angel Doo..I can't believe you've been gone a year already. I miss you and think about you every single day. I still feel bad that I put you through so much, but I was being selfish. I didn't want you to leave me. You loved me so much, you would have hung on no matter how much pain you were in, I knew I had to let you go and it was one of the hardest days of my life. I know you are running free and without pain and I know you watch over Austin and I every day. You're in my heart, where you'll live forever. Until we meet again, know that Mama misses you and loves you with all her heart and with every fiber of her being. I LOVE YOU!



Thank you everyone!

I can't believe you've been gone 8 weeks. Your presence is still felt in the house and I know Austin misses your gentleness. (Dee isn't gentle by any means and is nothing like you. She definitely tries my patience at times.)

I have reminders of you everywhere from my friends. I have a plant from Ramsey, Moxie and Ms. Debbie that I so enjoy watching grow; I have my necklace I wear all the time from Sophie Claire, Harley D. and Ms. Jerri; I have my key chain from Zane & Ms. Mer that I put on a chain that I have hanging in the car. So you are always around, never out of my thoughts and forever in my heart where you'll live forever.

I hope you are enjoying all the beautiful sunshine and running and playing to your heart's content with all your friends and your siblings Cyndi, Randy, Annie, Dawn and Sassy that went before you.

Know you are always in my thoughts and I love and miss you with every ounce of my being. I'm thankful I had you for 10 wonderful years, but am glad you are no longer in pain.

Run free my Sweet Angel.



Thank you

Hi Everyone...I apologize for taking so long to get the thank you gifts out to everyone who sent gifts for my page when I crossed the Rainbow Bridge in May. Some days Dogster was down, some days we had computer problems, some days mom was really sad, but finally we did it!

I truly thank everyone for all the love and sympathy you sent mom and I during this difficult time. If there was anyone I missed, please let me know and I'll get a gift right out to you.

Sending you love from the Bridge...

Angel Doo


There's a new angel in heaven...

Her body is just wasting away. It's tired.


Dental Specialist Consultation

Doo's mom here...I took Doo to the dental specialist. He looked at her teeth and said both of the molars on the left hand side are broken. He wanted the internist to look at Doo and possibly do chest x-rays to make sure no fluid was in her lungs cause he felt her breathing was slightly labored and also possibly do a liver ultrasound to make sure her liver is ok and up to the anesthesia. He said she would probably be under anesthesia for several hours while he removed or fixed the teeth (depending on what I wanted, i.e., root canal). I had a friend with me and she asked him what would HE do if it was his dog. He said he would rather her die on the table trying to help her than not help her at all. So after lots of tears, I decided I'm not going to do anything. She has been through enough! And the end result is the same weather it be on the table or in a few months. (and that's not even considering all the money the x-rays, ultrasound and dental work would cost me.) So I'm going to continue on with the pain meds and the antibiotic and just make her as comfortable as possible. If I see or feel that she is in pain, then I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. For now, she's relatively happy. She still has bright eyes, eating, drinking, eliminating as normal, barking, trotting when she comes in from outside and is constantly wagging her tail. And really, that's the most any mom can ask for.


Its always something, or in our case...if its not one thing- its two.

Doo's mom here...last Friday, I came out of my room and found a pool of blood on the tile floor. It was coming from Doo's mouth. I opened her mouth and it looked like one of her molars had fallen out or broken off. She was eating a bully stick right before all this happened. I took her to the vet, got the bleeding stopped and it just looked like the bully stick might have jabbed her right under one of her molars or jabbed the roof of her mouth. While the vet was looking (she was looking on the left hand side and the bleeding was coming from the right hand side of Doo's mouth), the on-call vet saw that a different molar was broken and there was a piece kinda just hanging there and there was pulp exposed. We set up to have the tooth removed tomorrow (Wed). She said to just give her soft food and increase her Tramadol to 3 times/day.

My regular vet called me a bit ago and reminded me that the last time Doo was put under for her teeth cleaning, she had a reaction to the anesthesia, like a seizure. This was WAY before the tumor by her brain stem was found. She was very hesitant to do the tooth pulling there in her office in case something happened and they wouldn't have the means to help Doo. She put a call into a specialty clinic (not where Doo had her surgery and MRI's done) and we're just waiting for the call back.

She said that one thing that we can do is continue on with the soft foods and the pain meds and that the tooth would eventually die, but with it being exposed like it is, it would have a greater chance of becoming infected.

Back when Doo had her dental work done before, we knew 2 of her molars were cracked but the dental vet said they were still "sealed" and no pulp or roots were exposed. We don't know how long this one tooth has been like this. We just found out by accident when the vet looked at the wrong side of her mouth. So I think I'm not going to do anything and just continue on with the soft can foods and the Tramadol and cross the next bridge that the tooth may cause when that time comes.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO???? Am I doing the wrong thing? Should I chance it and have the tooth removed and possibly run the big risk of her dying on the table? With the brain tumor any number of things could happen with her and the anesthesia..her brain could swell, she could bleed out from the tumor, etc. etc. etc. Her chances of not making it are greatly increased due to the brain tumor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Who would have thunk it??

Six months ago yesterday I found out I had that tumor by my brain stem. The way the doctors were talking I don't think they expected me to be here through Christmas. I guess I showed them didn't I! Mom says its that strong will I have! (You know what they mother like daughter. BOL) I'm still holding my own and haven't had any major problems or setbacks. That's a good thing. :) Mom's had to make some minor changes in her life (sleeping on the couch, sleeping with the light on so I can see when I move around, putting plastic down in various rooms for me) but she doesn't mind at all, just as long as I'm o.k. and am keeping strong.

Thanks for sticking with me as I travel this journey and thanks for your love and constant POTP. So grab a bone and let's toast to another 6 months and another 6 months and another 6 months. :)
