Very sorry for the loss of your grandmother! I'm glad that Penny is doing well though. What is wrong with our world that cancer is running so rampant with so many people and our precious pets?

Penny's Story

You inspire me. Scout's cancer journey is relatively new but to read your and penny's story....it touched my heart.

Prayers for you, Penny and your grandmother.

Lauren, my condolences on the loss of your grandmother. Good for your BF for stepping up so you can celebrate her life and mourn her passing with the rest of your family.

Where do I start? This week has been incredibly hard for me. Friday before I flew out to Arizona, I rushed Penny to the vet because she developed a small hole in her chin that night before. The vet noticed that Penny has a serve infection in her botton jaw on her bad side. The vet was positive that the infection would not go away without surgery and would kill Penny. I was devestated. Here i am sitting on the floor crying and holding my puppy finding out she has a serve infection and i was suppose to fly out the next day to Arizona to be with my family to mourn the loss of my grandmother and to go to her service.

I was tourn. So I hospilized Penny for the day and she was on fluids and antibiotics all day long. I decided to go to Arizona the next day when my boyfriend said he would do whatever Penny needed when I was gone. Also when many friends, including Sally's mom agreed to come check on her. So I brought Penny home and she started more antibiotics and pain medicine.

After taking a red eye back to Maine Monday night, I have spent every minute with my beloved Penny. Thankfully I have the week off from work and I am able to be with her. As hard as it is to say this, it is occured to me that Penny is done fighting and is ready to go. She has been fighting this cancer for 3 1/2 years! I feel so blessed to have every one of those extra days with her. She is my heart dog and has been there for me through so much in my life. I love her so incredibly much and it is so hard to let her go. I made the decision to let Penny go this Friday afternoon. It will be done peacefully here at the house.

My parents don't fly back until late Thursdy night. So unless Penny shows signs she has to go before Friday, we will let her go then so she can be surrounded by those who love her. Luna has been really cute. It is like she knows Penny and I don't feel well. She has been cuddling right up to Penny and me. A therapy dog for a therapy dog.

Please be thinking of Penny this Friday as she makes her journey to the next step in life.

Lauren, Luna and Rory!
