Last nite we lost our baby Mandy. She had been diagnosed with cancer 2mo. ago and was given only a month to live. We will miss her so much. She was my baby for 13yrs.4mo. RIP my sweet angel. We love you. Mommy and daddy.
Sandy, I'm so sorry to hear that. I've been thinking about you and Mandy the last couple of days. I know how much you loved her and you have my sincerest sympathies. Hugs to you, your hubby and your two other furbabies.

Sorry for your loss. I thought I would share this with you.
Lend Me a Pup
I will lend to you for awhile, a pup, God said, For you to love him while he lives and mourn for him when he's dead. Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me.
He'll bring his charms to gladden you and (should his stay be brief) you'll always have his memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true And from the folk that crowd's life's land I have chosen you. Now will you give him all your love Nor think the labour vain, Nor hate me when I come to take my Pup back again.
I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will be Done," For all the joys this Pup will bring, the risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter him with tenderness we'll love him while we may And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay! But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand. If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve! In memory of him we loved, to help us while we grieve, When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife, We'll have yet another Pup and love him all his life.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
Thanks to everyone and the poem was great.They just bring us so much love and joy and this little girl has been my shadow for so long. The vet told me this morning that evidently the cancer had spred to her brain and that was why is had a seizure and was so disorented. I hope one day I can forget that horrible sight. Bless her little heart though, she is at peace and no more pain. The pain was horrible when we lost Max last year but I think seeing how much pain Mandy was in it helped me to know we did not bring her back home to suffer more. She just layed her little head down in my husband's hand and went peacefully off to sleep. It just helps to know she did not have to suffer anymore because she would have not made it through the week-end after the meds wore off. Thanks again to everyone. It just helps to talk and share. Sandy
I'm so sorry for you and your family. They leave a huge hole in our hearts when they have to leave us and there is never enough time with them. Please try to remember she is flying free and in no pain. If you listen hard I'm sure you will hear her letting you know that she is watching over you.
