A Magnificent Specimen

18 Jan

My Snickers.  I do adore him.

I’m not sure how much longer he’ll be around.  The cancer is really starting to impact his health.  He’s still a magnificent specimen though.

Five Years Later

19 Apr

It was five years ago this month that Snickers first had problems with his mouth.  It was September when he was diagnosed with mouth cancer.  I am amazed at how well he is doing.  We’ve had a couple of rough patches, but if you didn’t know about his problems, you’d never guess he had anything wrong with him.

I am so grateful to still have him in my life.  I’m hoping for another five years!

I hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s list is at the top of my side bar.

A Farewell to Bud

1 Aug

Saturday Bud took a turn for the worse.  The vet came, and we treated him for a possible infection, but the thought was more likely cancer.

After a couple of days of meds, he was still uncomfortable (although not in the pain he was before), so today we said good-bye to my sweet goofy boy.
