This is my Emma. She will be 14 years old in January. Her health is good, if you don't count mild laryngeal paralysis and two calcified disks in her back. Her mother, Jessie, died of Osteosarcoma at age 13.
My dear Daniel, the GQ dog sweater model, is 9 1/2.
TJ is my friend Kim's dog. He was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in July, at the tender age of 8. He has recovered beautifully from amputation surgery, has received 4 of a scheduled 6 chemotherapy treatments, and had a clear chest x-ray two weeks ago. As of now, TJ is a happy, healthy boy.
We have a page on our Greyhounds Rock web site dedicated to the faces of dogs who have been lost to cancer. These dear dogs, with their sweet faces, help keep us going when the fatigue and stress of the last few weeks of final preparations began to build. CLICK HERE to go to the Memorial Page. If you would like to submit a photo, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be signing off now until early next week. If you are coming to our gathering, please hunt me down and say Hello. If you are not coming, and would still like to support the cause, donations are gratefully accepted ... we have PayPal, to make it quick and easy.
Here is a little taste of Halloween.
I'll be back next week. Thanks for all of your support, Everyone.
