DOG CALENDAR ENTRY
We adopted Cloe when we first found out that Tazzie Fred's sister had Cancer. Tazzie and Fred where litter mates and very attached to each other. When the vets told us Tazzie's cancer was very rare and very strong growing. They really couldn't give us a time line on how long she would live. We decide to adopted Cloe to help Fred in the long run because he was so attached to Tazzie... Tazzie was the boss in the house.
Tazzie was so strong that out lived the time frame they thought. She had 5 cancer mass removals. The type of cancer she had that hadn't since in over 30 years and it was in such a hard spot they could never removal all of it. It was attached her spine and would grow outward past her lungs to her back. So the only course of treatment was removal, anything else could damage her lungs or effect her spine. So we only did the removals.
She fought the cancer for almost 4 years. We lost her to cancer 4/2/07.
We started fostering Jake or known as Jakerman with all this going on... and then foster Homer...they became buddies and part of the family... our two foster flunkies...
