Tell Us Your Tail (Ha!)

This is our youngest, Bruno. And yes, he does this all the time!

In an effort to really go and get that much needed cup of tea (and since my husband hasn’t yet seen the importance of waking up and getting it for me), I’m dialing it in this hour and encouraging YOU to tell US about why you are here following this crazy event.

One thing that I’ve found is that when you meet another dog person or better yet, discover that someone has a dog – all they want to do is talk about THEIR dog. And I let them because when you have 6 dogs, it’s hard to pick just one to talk about.

So here is your chance to tell us all about your dogs, what they do and how much you LOVE them!

PRIZE PACK THIS HOUR – Gift certificate for a Top Dog “Spaw”” package.  (Value up to $65) donated by Bark N Bubbles Dog Wash! Thanks Pam & Dani! Tell us your “tail” and have a chance to get that puppy pampered! (This prize is local to the metro DC area, so if you win and are out of the area, please consider donating it to local rescue who could use it!

And please, if you have a few bucks to spare (and believe me, I know times are tough), please chip-in to the right of this post. Every little bit helps!

    I am here since cancer does touch everyone. Cancer was the biggest suspect when I lost my beautiful blue gray shelter cat 11 years ago this month. While I have 2 awesome cats now and my very first dog, I will never, ever forget my Misty Blue.

    My dog’s name is Frannie and she’s a pound puppy that I adopted over a year ago. We don’t know much about her. We know that she was taken away from her owner, she’s had at least one litter of pups, she wore down her front teeth for some reason and she was in the shelter for over 6 months. We’d been to many shelters looking for our new dog and there was something so sad about Frannie when we first saw. Surrounded by a ton of dogs barking for attention, she looked so withdrawn and defeated. I don’t mean to say that I went looking for the saddest dog to adopt but there was something about her. When we brought her home it seemed like she didn’t really know how to be a pet. Everything seemed new to her, like feeding time, walks and going to bed in her own dog bed. Dog obedience classes at All About Dogs really helped her develop some confidence and manners. I knew we’d reached a turning point in her life when she started wagging her tail. Today she’s a very happy girl who now loves her routine, where she’s walked and fed everyday and gets to fall asleep in her big fluffy bed. Although still a bit shy, she is amazingly sweet and welcoming to everyone that she meets. I hope that she knows how much joy that she has brought to our lives.

    I’m here because I lost my best friend Casey to pancreatic cancer. I never even thought that my dog could get cancer, no one I knew ever had a dog that had cancer. It was heartbreaking to watch and know that there was nothing I could do to help her. That was 3 years ago. Last year while watching the local news I saw a story about Luke, Murphy, and Hudson and their walk from Ausin to Boston….been following their story ever since. I was happy to find others who were also dealing with and fighting against canine cancer. Puppy Up!!

    I’m here because I love my dogs and want them to have a chance at a long life FREE of cancer. Though I know I can’t personally make that happen I want to learn as much as I can. And through 2 Million Dogs and all those that contribute I have learned so much. I hope that some of what I have learned will help my two dogs I have now in the manner I feed them and take care of them.

    My dog is Henley, a 17 month old Shiba Inu. He’s been the best addition to our home and now we feel like a family. Of course Henley now runs our house and graciously lets us fulfill his every desire. We love him tons and we can’t imagine anything ever happening to him. We want to help fight canine cancer!

    I’m here because my BFF (aside from my Dad) had cancer. I was SOOOO in love with Linga. And my distant brother Sturmie also had cancer, back when dogs almost never got cancer (1978) and there wasn’t even treatment for them. My Dad works with Mr. Luke and Ms. Ginger and our whole family has met Hudson and Murphy and they are way cool. Murphy has cancer now too, as does Mommy G’s dog Buddy. Please send them good thoughts and tell Buddy to eat whatever Mr. Luke makes for him!

    I’m here because canine cancer afflicts more dogs than anyone really realizes and I’m so happy to see something that raises awareness.

    I’m here because two of my 4 dogs have cancer. Bailey, my 8 year old puggle has been dealing with mast cell cancer for about 2 years. She has been lucky that the tumors are few and far between and each surgery has been a success.

    My little 13 year old pug Winnie was diagnose in October of 2009 with oral malignant melanoma. I was devestated. We saw two specialists and got differing opinions from both. One said to just watch her once the tumor was removed because she has multiple other health issues. The second basically told me that if I didn’t do the treatments she recommended (which would have bankrupt me) she would be dead by February of 2010. Well, I tried telling my little lady that she was sick and dying but she didn’t want to listen. She is still going strong and doesn’t let anything stop her. She is stubborn, pushy, and keeps complete order in our home. She does still have other health problems and takes many medications, but she isn’t letting this disease take her down. We met with a holistic vet that gave us hope and I believe it helped her to keep fighting.

    I love my dogs and it breaks my heart that they are both suffering from such a terrible disease. But they have taught me something important. You can’t worry about yesterday or tomorrow, you can only take life one day at a time and you should relish that day as if it was your last!
