If you've followed my posts for a while, you know I have two dogs, Jack & Petey. We adopted them 9 years ago from the pound - they've been the best companions for years. Jack is our hound, who had knee surgery about a year and a half ago. He was a trooper - and after about 6 months, he was running like a champ. Petey had a cancer scare a few months back and is doing really well, seemingly free of disease.
Out of the blue, Jack had a seizure on Monday. A small one, but he'd been showing signs of a personality change for a week or so, with a vet appointment in the future to check him out. But we didn't expect this. Our beloved Jack has cancer. He's home and resting and we're cherishing every minute left with him.
For now, my pals are sleeping next to me while I paint. Keep us in your thoughts.
