What this means to me

This time last year, my Rottie Jersey Girl was finishing up her first round of chemo.  She had just turned four and the vet said she was in remission.  We moved through every day knowing it could come back at any time.  It was always there.  My family came to visit in June 2010.  They had never met Jersey and loved her spunky attitude.  It was a beautiful summer.  Unfortunately, I knew it would be the only time they would spend with her.  Little did I know my time with her was going to end as well.  The cancer came back July 3rd.  She was such a trooper with the second round.  But her body couldn’t battle both.  This picture was taken on a warm August afternoon. 

She died hours later. 

This is why I feel so strongly about this cause.  I want to bring an end to the pain this disease causes for both furry friends and those left behind.  Please take the time to visit the Chase Away K9 Cancer website and look over the information they provide.  Read the stories of survival or stop by the ACVIM store to get yourself a great t-shirt.

Don’t forget about the giveaway I have going on!  There are only 3 days left to get signed up.  Show your support for Lynne’s Rotties and Chase Away K9 Cancer!  Thanks for everything!

  1. OMG, tears in my eyes. So sorry for you loss!
    My golden retriever died 4 years ago in January of hemangiosarcoma. We tried chemo, but knew that it was just prolonging his life because it was a fatal cancer, but he made the most of those last few months.

    Losing a member of your family is so hard, but they live in our hearts forever!

  2. Soft husky wooooos mate,


  3. Saw your post on another blog and had to make a visit. Jersey was a beautiful dog with such warm eyes, and your post made me cry. Thanks for loving our four-footed family members. Best wishes on your life and your running.

I love to hear from friends!
