Sad Baby Dog News

It's been a hard week. My "baby" dog, Lady, has been diagnosed with canine leukemia. Doctors says it's just a matter of weeks until we lose her. She's still smiling and doesn't look sick, but she's refusing food, even ice cream and chocolate. We've had two different vets look at her and both confirm the initial diagnosis. They both say there's nothing to be done. Chemo in Brittanys causes liver cancer and secondary infections that are as bad or worse as the initial cancer.

So we're taking it a day at a time and loving her, for as long as we have her.

Hugs and tears,
