We received some news today that we weren't ready for and are having a hard time dealing with.  The radiologist told the vet that the initial report we got after my ultrasound yesterday was wrong and I have cancer on my liver and spleen.  This news has devastated my Mommy and Daddy but I'm trying to stay positive for them and of course I always put on my cute face for them...

Truth is, we're all very worried and Mommy isn't dealing with this well so I told her we need to take a blog break for awhile so she can spend extra time with me.  We had wanted to personally comment on everybuddy's blog who's taken the time to send me well wishes and prayers but please know we appreciate all of you and have read them all (even if through blurry, leaky eyes).  

Be sure and hug somebuddy you love since we never know what tomorrow brings!
(Some of my sisfur Isabella's Tortie wisdom must be rubbing off on me.)

Thanks again for all the love and support everybuddy has given me and my family!

Oh Sadie I am so very sorry. I wish I could come there and give you and your mommy a great big hug. I don't think your daddy would want a hug from me.

We are thinking about all of you and sending all kinds of positive thoughts. I know how very hard this is for your mommy and for you.

Sadie, I wish I were there to give you a great big hug! And one for your mommy too!!!
I'm off to give Harley a big hug!

Stephanie Colman said... June 19, 2012 at 5:11 PM

Thinking of you and your family. I pray that the vet can find a way to give you all some comfort and time. Every time I look at your sweet face, Sadie, I think of my little Suzydog and how much you two look alike! Much love!!

Sewinggranny - Mona said... June 19, 2012 at 5:12 PM

Oh Sadie... I am so sorry!! I wish there was something I could do or say that would make this all better but know there is not... I will be thinking and praying for you! Sharla... take care sweetie... we love you!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said... June 19, 2012 at 5:18 PM

You KNOW how we feel about this -

I've shared it with others so we can get the paw power rev'd up tighter than tight -

Please know all of us are here for you -

Some have been 'there' - some fortunately haven't but we never know what Fate has in store for us -

Like KB and K, please live for the day - for the moment - for the now -

Khyra and Phyll

Huffle Mawson said... June 19, 2012 at 5:18 PM

I am sending you and your family big hugs, Sadie.

SissySees said... June 19, 2012 at 5:20 PM

Oh gosh... we read but rarely comment, but we lost our first basset to liver cancer. Cancer is awful, but when it attacks a sweet dog, it's heart-breaking. We'll cross paws, Sissy (the basset) will sling drool, and the humans will send good vibes your way. We wish you comfort and love.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said... June 19, 2012 at 5:21 PM

Oh no, Sadie, we are so so sorry to read this. We have been praying for you and don't know what to say. We were so hopeful it was nothing serious. Sending big (((hugs))) for your mom and we are thinking of you with paws crossed.

Jan's Funny Farm said... June 19, 2012 at 5:22 PM

Sadie, we were hoping your test results would show something easy to fix. We know your mom and dad were too. We wish we could say or do something wise, but all we can think to say is how sorry we are for your news. Purrs and pawhugs.

The Thundering Herd said... June 19, 2012 at 5:23 PM

Our apologies as a non-frequent commenter, but we wanted to pop in and wish you well. We have been where you are several times before and know how difficult things are. Our advice is simple. Embrace each day - as many as remain. Sometimes you are granted far more days than you think - and sometimes not - but some of our best memories are from those days when we knew time was short.

P.S. - Take the blog break. Time is now about yourselves. But know a bunch of us out here can be a very strong shoulder to lean on.

Simba said... June 19, 2012 at 5:27 PM

Oh, Sadie and Mommy and Daddy, we are so sorry that the vet's report was this. Huge hugs from us here. Please don't feel you must moment on our blogs!

Did you read the blog of Maxdog? Here is the link:


He had liver cancer as far as we remember. He actually lived a LOT longer than anyone would have predicted. We hope Sadie can do well. We feel we know her through going for walks with her on Sadiedays, and we love her without actually having met her in the fur.

Simba said... June 19, 2012 at 5:28 PM

Should have been "comment", not "moment"

CBLandCO. Jewelry And Gifts said... June 19, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Aw, Sadie, I'm so very sad to hear that news. :( I hope that you know how much we all love you and that lovely smile you have.

Let's just have fun and enjoy the time that we all have left. My little Grace is old too, and there isn't a day that I don't stop and remember this moment or that. At least we have that, right?! We get to enjoy every cuddle, every hike, every sunbeam instead of just taking them for granted.

Tell Mommeh I am sending love and prayers for her too. I know that she is very sad, but please, don't let her waste the days crying. Embrace the time you have together!

We love you, Sadie!!

Amanda said... June 19, 2012 at 7:22 PM

Sweet Sadie, we're so sorry to read this news, more than you'll ever know. Is the vet sure there isn't another mistake? Do your humans want a second opinion? Are there treatment options?

Woo, Sadie! We will continue to pray for you! We wish we could give you and your mom and every buddy there GREAT big HUGS!
When Zimmie was going through the second of his cancer surgeries, the Dermatologist there at KSU (she was treating him for something else) said this to mom. It was that yes, the bipeds know that he has (now "had") cancer -- but he doesn't! And THAT'S how Mom needed to keep living. It helped Mom a lot. I hope it helps your mommy and daddy, too.

Nancy said... June 20, 2012 at 10:01 AM

Oh my! I'm so, so very incredibly sorry to hear that news. I've been thinking about you Sadie, every day and I just don't even know what to say. Big hugs all around and all my love!
