Pooches: Some News

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.
Dancing in leaves:
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.
We still have so many stories to share and we will be keeping updates, so stay tuned.
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.

Weirdo.
More weird.

I am so sorry to hear of this challenge you and you family is facing with Ms M's health. I hope with treatment she will continue to be the spunky girl that has captured my heart 4 years ago when I first adopted my two pitty boys. You and your pack have been so inspirational to me when I was freaking out, wondering what have I done since I knew nothing about big dogs let along pitties. Your funny and helpful posts have helped me tremendously. Big hugs to Ms M, and to you and family.

This truly is devastating news, and we're so sorry to hear it. Ms M (and Mr B) has been a source of ear-to-ear smiles for me for many years. We're heading over to GoFundMe now, and we'll also spread the word.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery, and many more days of happiness and smiles, Ms M!

I am so sorry to hear about Miss M. I have been following your blog for years now and Miss M and Mr B (and your awesome descriptions) crack me up. I can't imagine how you are feeling but I am thinking about your family. This news had me in tears and I really don't have the words but I am thinking of you all.

Oh, so sorry to hear this news. Please give Miss M (and Mr. B too) an extra hug from Reggie and me.

Ryan said...

Devastating, but I hope that Miss M has the best quality of life in the time she has left. We just lost our oldest dog and he declined pretty quickly during the month of October. Although we were not ready to say good by, I'm glad that he was happy and healthy and normal until the last two weeks.

Limassol said...

So sorry to hear about Ms. M... Positive vibes all the way from Portugal to her! These situations are never easy but knowing that we do everything that we can for our best friends helps us a litlle to cope with all the sadness and pain.
Lots of love to all!!!!
