We've always loved having this space to share our stories of the pooches and to hear that so many people love them as much as we do.
This is still hard for us to process, but over the holiday weekend, Miss M became suddenly seriously ill. After a stint at the emergency hospital, we received some devastating news that it appears she has a tumor...on her heart.
Which is all so shocking since up to this point she has been routinely going on daily 4 mile jaunts.

And participating in hijinks with Mr. B:
The good news is that the mass is small and has not spread to any other part of her body.
She is also still energetic and acting completely like herself.
Our main goal for her at this time is for her to have a positive quality of life and to be able to continue doing things that she enjoys.
While there is no cure, we spoke to a Cardiologist and Oncologist who are both optimistic that treatment can help decrease ruptures and the spread of cancer and it will extend and increase the quality of her life.
Update: Thank you to everyone for your support and kind words. While we weren't sure how to proceed, some friends have set up a GoFundMe to help defray the costs of her treatment.
