6 years, 10 months, 13 days...

not nearly enough time for the most loyal canine friend i could have ever asked for.

the cancer has become fierce enough that it has made cora not be able to get comfortable any more, meds or no meds.

this is killing us as much as it's literally killing her. but we want her to be pain free and we have known for too long now that this was the eventual end :( the vet today is pretty certain she has a pathological fracture in her left leg due to a bulbous mass on her shoulder that appeared almost overnight. her spirit is still good (which is so SO hard...) but her body? is broken beyond repair :(

so as of december 8, our girl will run free in the next place and we will miss every bit of her being here with us...

blessings to all during this usual merry time of year. i think our christmas will be more subdued this year...and rightfully so when one of the family is missing...

peace & love...

I've been where you are. The pain is immeasurable. I am happy for Cora's life with you. I am sad for her passing.

I'm so sorry for you for this pain. Cora is without pain now. It is such a hard thing, this death stuff, but we must remember one day we'll be back together with our cherished furbabies over the rainbow bridge . . . hugs and love.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Cora. We lost a cat to cancer on Dec 21st a few years ago, just before Christmas.

heartfelt condolences . . . our thoughts have been with you. Thoughts of comfort and solace are being sent your way. I'm hoping Cora is frolicking with Lagne and Nelson :)
