about my dear dog zoey
i am suffering from my 3rd cancer.i had breast cancer twice,and 5 years after i rescued zoey from a puppy mill. i asked the breeder if they had any adult [they were breeding collies, shetland sheepdogs and ragdoll cats]shetland sheepdogs that they didnt want anymore. they sold me zoey,who was 7 at the time because she wasnt producing 'good puppies' anymore, i couldnt wait to get her out of that place.she was afraid of everything,even going was horrible. she became my shadow. a couple of years later she was lying in bed with me and suddenly started sniffing my stomach like crazy,then started to srcatch at it and this continued for a month. she never did anything like that,and i knew she was trying to tell me something. 3 weeks later i had a routine colonoscopy,and they found a huge stage 3 tumour that had grown in 3 months time. i had no symptoms.thats when i realized what she was trying to tell me. i had immediate surgery,and when i got home she never left the bed[i was bedridden for months]every hour or so she would sniff me up and down until she was satified i was ok. throughout my chemo she would snuggle close to me to keep me warm[she never did that before either]three weeks ago she had a small limp,so we took her to the vets,figuring it was something minor, and after her xrays the vet told us she had very advanced cancer,and there was nothing i could do. i felt like someone suckerpunched me. we decided not to have her get progressivly worse and in pain,so we sent her to heaven. i truly beleive she saved my life and found my cancer,and took care of me anyway she could. i have her ashes, and it is still heartwrenching,but i know ill see her again. thanks for letting me tell my story,im new,i just found this site,and its woderful. if anyone would like someone to talk to about cancer or anything,they can get intouch with me on facebook[julie mckay hennessy, or here] thank you,and a wonderful holiday to all! peace,julie
