Sorrow in the Midst of Joy

In the midst of all the business and pleasure of a new baby has come sadness.  My daughter's beloved boxer became ill and before they even were able to make a full diagnosis it become clear she was dying.  Boxers are tumor factories and one developed in her liver.


Rest in peace, sweetheart. You were much loved.

  1. Dang. So sorry to hear that. Pets (especially dogs, IMO) are full-blown family members who just happen to have a lot of hair. Our condolences and prayers for you and yours.

  7. Bob, RabidAlien, ML, Rev, NFO, GFA, Rick, AGirl - Thanks. It happened so fast that we didn't have time to prepare for her loss. I still feel bad that she was surrounded by so much distress during her last hour. All we could do was hold her and cry.
