Your story about Sprite really touched my heart as I am going through the same thing now. My puppy (8 1/2 yrs old) a miniature schnauzer – chewie has been recently diagnosed with cancer. I decided against the surgery so he can spend his last days at home with us (in comfort) playing with our other dogs – we have 3 total and and getting love and pets from both my husband and myself for as long as he has left. He can’t make it down the stairs so I carry him – he can only navigate on level ground and then when it comes time to go to bed – I carry him up – he has almost no appetite so he gets anything he will eat and sometimes I even carry water to the bed so he will drink. I am glad to know that there are other people out there that realize how animals enrich our lives. Thank you so much for your book and caring about our furry friends. I don’t have a picture but did want to share my thoughts with you. Because of this we have even adopted a stray and named her Hershey –
