Woofie Tuesday

Friends, it is with a heavy heart that I write this post, and this says much when it has something to do with Dogfaces.




It's going to be a short one, as the human has just got the news and her eyes are leaking badly enough that she needs to go get tissues. Do you remember our HG? The nice ladypeople who went to the cat show with me and bought me a toy? She has a dogface that did the same job as the human's, you know, the guide dog thing? yesterday, she noticed that the Nikki dogface had a lump which she was worried about. Thinking it was an enlarged splean, she contacted the Guide Dogs organisation who came and took her to a super duper vet nearby to be checked out.





Unfortunately, they found cancerous growths and tumours which couldn't be totally removed. At most, Nikki dogface would have only a few months left with us as the cancer got worse, and nothing could be done. Reluctantly, the Hg put her own heartache aside and made the decision that was best for Nikki, not her. Today while still peacefully asleep under anaesthetic, Nikki crossed the rainbow bridge, and the poor HG is heart broken. I'm writing this here cuz I know how much support helped my human when I was sick, and I also know how much others who have had pets cross the bridge have valued it too. I know you know her only a little through this blog, but please spare a thought for her today. She reads often, so will see comments and this post when she's ready to.





Nikki dogface, my human and you may not always have seen eye to eye, but know that she will miss you deeply. You don't know what you've got until it's gone, and in this case, it's very true. Be at peace as you wait at the bridge for your HG human.





HG, we love you lots and both of us wish we could give you a huge snuggle right now. Please be strong.

Lots and lots of love to HG. I am sure you are right that lots of supportive comments on here will make her feel a bit better in time. Lots and lots of people will know what she's going through. She was brave to make the best decision for Nikki dogface.

Oh Tia we are so so sorry that your HG had to let Nikki dogface go to the bridge. We can't imagine how hard it has to be to have so little time between finding out the problem and having to make that decision. But we know that she make the decision for Nikki's sake, not her own. And Nikki will always be with her in her memories and in her heart. We are sending her and all of you lots of comforting purrs and prayers.

We are so sorry to hear that HG had to let Nikki go to the Bridge but it was the kindest thing to do. We know she will miss Nikki lots and lots and will need you to purr for her Tia. At least Nikki did not suffer and will watch over his human with love.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

So, So Sorry. It is rough when it hits so fast like that.

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely posts. I've had such an outpouring of love and support from you guys and from friends on Facebook and Twitter, and it helps so much to know that people care. It was a terrible shock losing my Nicki Noodle so quickly, and I still can't talk about her without crying (soggy keyboard this end!), but Tia's pregnancy just confirms what an awesome thing the circle of life is. I just can't wait to meet my great-grandkittens!
