Fly Free Butters

I hate to bring bad news about a friend but hearts are breaking and sharing can help.  A friend of mine, an afghan named Butters, crossed the bridge.  She turned twelve on April 17 and then suddenly, drastically, slowed down starting on Sunday.  The vets ran lots of tests and think she had pancreatic cancer that had spread to her lungs.   They tried supportive therapy for a day and her condition continued to get worse.  She started having lots of trouble breathing.   With a heavy heart, her mom helped her across the bridge.

    So sorry to hear of your friend’s dog. It is therapeutic to share, to write, to express how we feel. Loss is a very powerful thing. I hope you can help your friend in her time of need.
