Sally the Wonderdog

RIP Sally the Wonderdog
We met Sally online on one of the dog cancer discussion groups. She had the same cancer as River -- MCT. We had hoped to have a long time to discuss our various treatments and hopefully successes with her family. She was 13 1/2 years old and the light in her family's eyes. You can see the happy smile she has. We were only able to know her for a month and then she was suddenly gone.

I wanted to write a little about her to celebrate her wonderful life and to let everyone know how generous her family has been to us. They sent us the supplements they had bought for her all the way from another continent. Supplements that I could not afford because I lost my job--so it is extra wonderful. River is doing well and with the supplements hopefully beat the oncologist's prediction for him (about 6 more months). Thank you to Sally for sharing, her family says she was good at sharing.

Soft woos to Sally's family on her loss. They were very nice to send all those meds to River. So good to hear that River is doing well.

We took a peek at your brother's dog Cesar - very sweet and what a resemblance to Lightning. We think his ears may be a bit bigger. When Dakota was a puppy in obedience training, her trainer was a German Shepherd breeder and used to call Dakota a GSD wannabe:)_

Thanks for sharing.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Hi Stephanie, only just been able to bring myself to check up on River. So glad he is doing well, so happy for you both!! Thank you for your tribute to our Sally. I was just so touched to read it and a big thanks for all the kind wishes from everyone...there really are some lovely people out there. I truly appreciate it. We miss her terribly but it really pleases my heart to know that some good can come of her passing. She was always a really happy girl, full of life and enjoyed it to the full. We adored her and she adored us and she was only ever sick four days of her entire life and that was the last four. I suppose there aren't too many people who can say that. I hope and pray that River remains well...he is such a beautiful boy. I wish you both all the luck in the world and will keep checking in from time to time. Love from Sue (Sally's Mum from Australia) xx
