For those of you who don't know my sweet Gunny passed away last month. His cancer had obviously spread through his whole body. Our last month together was great though. I took him to the holistic vet every week and it helped a little, but it was too little too late.

If I have to go through this again I will start with the holistic route first and do chemo as a last resort. It was a long, expensive, sleepless and well worth while 7 month fight. He went through a lot, surgery, chemo, lots of doctors visits, lots of medicines and supplements. Through it all he remained a happy little puppy. He still acted like a pup, not a 13 year old cancer ridden dog.

And with all that said I love you my pup, but the show must go on and there is an empty spot in our house and hearts.

So... let me introduce Leonardo Miguel Ross, AKA Leo. He is a pup that was saved by someone in Louisiana. He is coming to Maine on Saturday and I will be picking him up in Biddeford. He is a Rat-Cha or Chi-Rat, they think. His mother is a Chihuahua anyway and his father may or may not be a Rat Terrier. Hopefully he's not a little brat, but all of my animals are little brats anyway!
