There is a member here (hasn't posted for a very long time & I can't remember her screen name) who just lost her furbaby to lymphoma. Her heart dog's name was Megan and I can only imagine how she is feeling right now. I hate this disease. It brings things like this home. She had ONLY started treatment I believe THIS YEAR. I'm so very sad for her. For me. For all of us going through this.

Karen - if you're reading this, these people are so supportive and loving and many have gone through what you're going through. Please don't try to go through this alone.

You're in my prayers.

I don't think Karen would mind if I shared this post with you all:

"Today our sweet Megan AKA Diva went to the bridge she passed 12:30pm at home
She was fighting Lymphoma

Megan was my Heart Dog since the day she came into our lives on June 19,1999 at 8 weeks old
We always loved the Asterling Goldens.. After many phone interviews & letters Mary Burke approved us
Thank you Mary

The day Megan came off the plane from Wisconsin she hopped out of the crate with grace & moxie to say here I am world.... Since that day till today she was a lady & Diva..

To put Megan on a leash was beneath her.

Megan is also known as the Alphabet girl named by Mary for all the titles she has earned the last title was
APDT Rally Veteran Championship to which she also earned the Award Of Excellent. Last year she ranked #11 in Level 3 APDT National Ratings

There was nothing Megan wouldn't do for us if we asked her.. Even with Lymphoma she would go out make Snow Angles and let the world know "It is a GReat day"
Megan was always at the Welcome Table at Goldstock & My Golf cart buddy there & at home where she had her own golf cart know as "The Meg Mobile"

She was a wonderful Therapy Dog who visited right to the end

Megan came to work with me everyday at the Nursing Home & worked each floor by herself & came into my office when it was time to leave.. She would get mad at me on days I had meetings and she couldn't come.. also when when we retired 5 years old
If Megan was mad at me she would not look at me for hours.. The day she had her test to find out what was wrong
she went on the therapy visit while waiting for the rest of the group she went over to Doug & sat with her back towards me
Everyone who came in wanted to know why her back was towards me when I told them she was mad .. they said they heard
our stories of what Megan would do if she was mad at me now if they haven't seen it with their own eyes they wouldn't believe it

Godspeed Megan.. Run Free now with no pain Baby Girl

This is what I would always say to her each day & night

You are my Baby Butt & my Heart Dog, and my Yeah Baby, and my Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness, A Baby got to do what
a Baby got to do..then sing
I love you, You love me , were a happy family with a great big kiss & a hug from me to you won't you say you loved me too
Megan would then put her head under my chin which is the I love you sign

Karen and Doug - you're very welcome. I was a little scared that I was overstepping some boundaries, but I feel more at home here than the "yahoo list" and knew that these great people would be praying for you guys.

This has really hit a very deep emotion for me and I just cannot even begin to understand or imagine the pain you must be feeling. I am just so very, very sorry. It just happened so fast! How fragile life is. You're heart girl - I'm groping for words and have none.
