My papa. 💙 i’m 38 years old and am loved & supported by my person but he’s still my peaceful place. my comfort. my grounder. in fact, buck and he share some of the same energy. can’t explain that but it’s true. #mypapa#buckthedog#lakemichigan#peacefulplace#heandgodarebff first curve is our favorite wild beach near #ludingtonstatepark and it’s where we said goodbye to my aunt mary. it’s always been my place for finding peace.
This sweetness has had a rough couple of days. the acupuncture was not a healer this time. i fear (& know) our days are numbered. so today, instead of a parade, we are having a dog day. walks, snuggles, a trip to mcdonalds for nuggets. tomorrow we’ll see how he’s faring. in the meantime my heart is beating outside my body and i’m having a hard time finding my smile. last night he curled up basically in my lap & i gave him gentle pets & kisses to give him comfort. tonight we are moving the guest mattress to the front room & will have a family sleepover. and i will snuggle him as much as he allows. #myheart#mysweetboy#buckthedog#lovesofmylife#dogswithlymphoma
This guy takes up so much of my heart. 💙some days i forget he’s battling cancer. but when he looks at me and is panting, i remember & want to make it better. i know i can’t. the vet says he’s far outlived any expectation. but his lymph nodes are huge & he has more moments when he struggles to catch his breath. currently he has more good moments/days but we both feel this could change at any time. our biggest thing is that we do not want him to suffer in any way. i watch him closely and pay attention to the little things to make sure we do what is best for him. in the meantime, we’ll enjoy the days & moments we have with him. #buckthedog#dogswithlymphoma#mysweetboy#lovesofmylife
