So on this Friday four years ago I had a plan to get up , get my dogs fed and walked and then head over to my friend Cyndi's house to drive with her to set up for the big Reliant/NRG dog show that weekend. Unfortunately that plan never happened.....I was awakened around four a.m. by a terrible sound. I turned on my lights and found my beautiful girl, Lizzy, standing in the corner of my room throwing up. She just couldn't stop. I got my other three outside and picked up Lizzy and took her outside to see if I could get her to drink some water. She wouldn't....and I knew she had to be dehydrated, so I crated my other guys with a treat and put Lizzy in the car and at 4:30 in the morning we were speeding towards the emergency vet. To tell you the truth....I didn't think she would make it through the day.

Luckily it was pretty quiet there and they took her right in. Took them hours to get her back hydrated and get anti-nausea meds in her so she was feeling a bit better. I knew it was nothing she ate or anything she picked up in the yard.....if it had been I would have been so happy!! It was a long day...they transported her to get an ultrasound...found a five inch tumor in her doudenum. When we finally got to surgery a few weeks later that turned out to be the least of our worries. I've covered a lot about her cancer here. But this was the day it started....I never did get to the show...was so happy to get my girl back that night.
I really miss my pretty redhead..... 


  1. That was a rough weekend, indeed. But, Lizzy proved everyone wrong and lived so much longer than they anticipated. She was such a love! Our babies will always be missed but we always carry them in our hearts. Big hugs to you.
