2011 was not a good year for us. We lost so many of our old hounds. But we did have a foster failure--new Daisy.

In December, we got a new Daisy.

In October we lost Georgia 1994-2011

In July we lost Belle 1992-2011

Also in July my mom lost her main job--the one with insurance. Jobs are extremely scarce for librarians, even ones with computer experience.

In May we lost Bailey 1993-2011

In March we lost Miss Daisy 1990-2011

In February I was diagnosed with a Mast cell tumor--this kind of cancer can appear one time or many times. Our oncologist was not hopeful for a year for me. But it is January 2012 and I am still here!

We are praying that this will be a great year for everyone. I would like to have another Christmas with my Mom, please. Miracles are possible!

Sorry for all of your losses. I think 2012 will turn around for you and be fantastic. Keeping you in my thoughts River. You can beat the evil cancer. Happy New Year!

Oh, River, your family did have a bad 2011. We so hope 2012 will be a good year for all of you!

We hear your mom drove Reesie and the Painter Pack mom to their new vet. We so hope Reesie pulls through. And many kudos to your sweet mom for caring so much about people and furries.
