So Dancer is a farm dog. She's well fed with dry dog food but likes supplemental protein.

On and she's a helluva mouser.

Not for the squeamish:

ps. she caught it, brought it back to her den and then ate it in less than 3 minutes while nursing her babies.

April is, indeed, the cruelest month...

I knew the cancer was incurable but was persuaded chemo could give her, on average, 3-6 months of quality life. Sadly, Maggie only got about 10 days of remission. A trip to the emergency room last Friday showed the cancer had returned. Fortunately, she was never in pain, just sickly, and they were able to make her comfortable enough to spend the night at home.

The poor vet was crying even before she came into the room. I felt as bad for her as I'm sure she felt for me...what a terrible way to begin a weekend shift.

The end was peaceful and heartbreaking.

and, yes, i would and will do it all over again...emily bronte called it "rapturous pain" and "divinest anguish" (of course, she was talking about a man)

Sorry, Bookie, about your loss. Emily Bronte's take is right on (about pets).

Watch John M's video above, it will perk ya up....

Sorry bookworm.

I have a cat who faints several times a week from heart problems. It's really difficult to know what to do. We're often told to live in the present but it's also good to think back on the happy past.

bookworm....I feel your pain. It's been over six months since I lost my big guy, and I shed tears for him every day.

My condolences on this profound loss....

on the lighter side...

my boy is more aloof; he likes affection but on his terms; he comes to me when he wants a rubdown

now, that maggie is gone, there's nobody to deflect my attention...i can tell he's getting annoyed though he bears it patiently

The love of my life,

I'm in love with this girl like I've never loved before!

Spring and the kids are stoked to be outside again!

Sunbathing is her favorite. She's my sexy bitch!

Y'all hear about the 3 year old who went missing in S Dakota yesterday?
A lengthy frantic search was looking grim in the face of a nasty thunderstorm
and nightfall when they found him curled up beneath his pooch as the rain
was beginning.

When you have a good dog, you don't just have a best friend, you have a connection, a bond stronger than most human relationships. I have been blessed with Lass who raised me and surprising, I find myself with another incredible good dog by my side.

When I lose her, I'll lose a family member.
