Town Creek

Sophie hangs in. Her frame shrinks and her tumors grow. She can’t do more than two stairs in a row. Her spine is visible. Muscle mass gone. A quarter mile now is a Very Long walk. But her will to live remains. Yesterday, imitating Nessie.

As I’ve said before, a dog can’t change the world but they can change your world. And if each of us can pass along even a fraction of the unmitigated, world changing love we receive from our dogs? Maybe we can see about that whole changing the world thing.–Will and Eko

Sophie used to find Reggie every morning. Now it is a struggle for her to walk the distance to Reggie’s house. We drove over for a reunion.

Keeping an eye on the cat next door. Toulouse is a French Bulldog, a brachycephalic breed that exhibits notable mandibular prognathism. The word “prognathism” derives from Greek pro (forward) and gnathos (jaw).
Brachycephaly, from latin roots meaning “short” and “head”, is descriptive term for animals whose skulls or noses are shorter than typical for the species.Wikipedia.
