Went to the Vet

and he confirmed that Lucy's lump is cancer. Sigh.... and all I keep hearing from people is, 'That's what happens when you have a big dog.' Versus what? Dieing (I can't even remember how to spell that... how pitiful is that?!) from old age? So, my 5lb Yorkie won't get cancer but will lose his eye sight, sense of smell, ability to hold his bladder and lose his hearing? Jeez, I don't know which is the lesser of two evils.

Anywho, Lucy is on pain killers for a while, hubby couldn't put her down just yet. Me, I wanted to get it over and done with as I have to see her and every day and watch her fall and/or stumble and help her into her bed. I think it's much harder on me.

Can you guys say Brrr??? It has turned cold here in 2 days... can you believe we had 91 degrees on Sunday and today's high was 62? Is that crazy or what? lol

I had my last Stamp Club meeting last night. We had a banana split par-tay and the girls were able to go thru my scraps and punch until they got carpal tunnel! I meant to take a picture, even thought I did, but alas I didn't.

I've also been stamping coasters. I will have to take pictures of those. I turned a set in to Lgirl's preschool for a fundraiser. Forgot a pic of that too... where's my head gone? lol

Okay, I'm off to bed, but first to finish my Halloween goodies for my halloween swap.

Sweet Dreams!

For any of you who don't know Lucy she is a sweetheart. I hate to see any animal get sick and it is always so hard on the people who love them. Bobbie takes great care of her pets (and everyone elses she cares for too). We had a great time at our last card club meeting. Cute card we made too and the banana splits-YUM. Traci

I am so sorry for you. I do know what it is like as my cat of 18 years developed a growth that was pressing on his throat. I had to put him down in August. It can be very shocking to have a pet and take him to the vet and be told it is something they can't fix. My boys and I (they are 8 and 6) went to the vet together and stayed with him while he was put down. It was horrible, but we cried and shared the experience together. My thoughts are with you during this trying time. It will be difficult but it does get easier with time. God Bless!

Awwww I am sorry to hear about your dog. I haven't lost a family pet in about 9 years...but know that feeling of having to put down an animal. I wish you well as you make your decision.
