The Tale of Ray and a Battle With Heart-Worm

2013 04 11b

Today’s tale is from a fellow blogger, Colin, at A Dog’s Life? (Stories of Me and Him). Colin is the author of “Who Said I Was Up For Adoption?” The following tale is actually an excerpt from his book.

In the latter part of May, and in preparation for taking heart-worm prevention medication, we took Ray back to the vet so that his blood could be tested prior to taking the medications. A few days later we had a message on our answering machine asking that we call the vet to discuss the test results. He had tested positive for heart-worm, and needed further tests to estimate how advanced he was. We were both in shock as the ramifications of this situation started to sink in.

Our beloved Ray, who would appear to have had such a shaky beginning to his life and who was now having a fresh start, was soon going to be in a fight for his life. Our beloved Ray who seemed so happy being a part of our family now had a very questionable future. Our beloved Ray had found his proverbial “forever home” but did he have much of a “forever” to enjoy it? Continue reading

Time Is Precious

There has been a lot of illnesses and death around my circle lately. Families of co-workers, fellow bloggers, and even in my own family there have been some hard times.

It really makes you stop and think how precious time is.

Time has a way of getting away from all of us. There is never enough time. But as you get older, I think you get wiser and you realize what you should be spending your time on. Things that make you happy and things that matter...family, friends, making a difference, and time with our beloved pets.

Time is precious!

I have been rolling around all kinds of ideas in my head for quite a while trying to come up with a drawing/saying that expresses what I feel my blog is all about. I mean, I do feel the name of my blog says a lot, which is why I chose the name, but I want to do more. What do you think of the graphic below? Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Honoring Lost Pets

It’s Sunday!

Today I would like to honor some pets that have passed away. I have gathered some photos from Facebook submissions, fellow bloggers, friends, and family. All lives matter and losing a pet can be devastating. So this Memorial Day weekend, please sit back, relax, and enjoy the photos and videos of precious lives that are now in the arms of their creator.

I wrote a poem to start off this post. I hope you enjoy.

A pet is not just an animal
But a part of the family
Time shared with them
Seems to go by so rapidly

A bond so strong
Between human and animal
A life shared together
Makes loss hard to handle

There is no timeline for grief
Our pets are not forgotten
But in one’s own time
The pain may soften
