  1. Dee Dee Duster - until we meet again

    So sad to hear of your girls sudden passing, but what beautiful photos. It truly looks like she had amazing life. And you now have amazing memories. It’s such a hard thing to deal with. My thoughts are with you.

    That makes for very interesting reading. Thanks for sharing it.
  3. Older dog with kidney ssues

    So sad. It all seemed so quick. Be free now Saffi, no more pain.
  4. dogs eating raw chicken

    Maddy, you made good points in your post. Agree wholly with you. Dogs can be pretty disgusting at times ( gotta love them) and yes they could pick up bacteria from anything. I have fed raw to all of my dogs over the years. The cats too. And yes it’s chicken necks on the menu every other night. And chicken mince and fillets also. Frames etc you name it. Touch wood nothing has gone wrong. I will be very watchful of any signs of illness but that’s just normal anyway but I am not about to rush out and change Molly’s diet. She loves what she eats and has always ( touchwood) had a clean bill of health.

  6. Hi :)

    Hi, welcome. Sounds like exciting times ahead for you and your family. Are you getting a little boy or girl?

    Sorry. Don’t know what happened. Can you see the sketch now? It was hand done at the markets copying a photo that was taken a few years ago. And it looks just like my little darlings. An excellent likeness.

    Not a a very clear photo but it is a framed black and white sketch of my girls. I have the most amazing friend who got this done for me as a gift. She always has the best ideas and knows how much my girls mean to me. Just had to show it off.

    Wow. That looks amazing. Lucky birds.
  10. We say goodbye tomorrow

    Such a sad time. My thoughts are with you. Reading about what you and your family have been through I understand that it has been quite tough for sometime. I do believe that you have tried your hardest for this little love and making the right decision is so very hard. But right. It’s a shame she is so young but I believe God takes all the good ones. Take care.

    I have one exactly the same. They are beautiful.
  12. Tell me about Cancer

    Your experience sounds horrible. Most cancer stories are I guess but at least our experience went the opposite of yours. We were told by a very nice specialist vet that Zena had barely a month to live. No treatment was going to help her type of cancer. And she just kept going. For 2 months. I know that doesn’t sound very long but when you are told less any extra time feels like a bonus. And even though I had to hand feed her she was mostly her normal happy self. Painkillers obviously helped.
  13. Tell me about Cancer

    My thoughts are with you DDD. It was this time last year when Zena was diagnosed with cancer. Hers was very aggressive and from diagnosis to making that decisions was just 8 weeks. She went from being her normal happy self to a very tired girl quite quickly although thinking back she was probably acting a bit more lazy before that but I just put it down to the hot weather we were experiencing. I also had noticed she was losing weight. She went off her food about a month after diagnosis and I had to persevere and hand feed her. About that time she too stopped jumping up on the lounge etc and we took to carrying her up and down our stairs. I never once saw her throw up except 2 days before our decision and that was just liquid . The day we took her for her last vet visit she was very frail and could barely walk. Although 2 days earlier she had been running around, literally running, while I gardened. It was like her last bit of energy. My last bit of happiness. I believe we left her go for a few days too long but it was over a weekend and our regular vet was away. I’ m not sure if any of this is helpful. It’s really horrible to watch the way cancer works. If only dogs could talk. Everyone kept telling us we would know when and believe it or not you do. In the mean time lots of cuddles and love. And I’m sure your little one knows how much you love her. Make the most of the time you have left with her. Will be thinking of you.

    Thankyou very much SM
  15. No advice here either but my thoughts are with you . Hope a diagnosis can be given quickly to at least ease your mind.
