Please wrap your paws around Daddi. Raise your paws in honor of LiveStrong Day. Join us in the determination and persistence to make this horrible thing go away. And share our grief as we think of Tucker and his Family.

What a lovely post, Asta! Cancer seems to have left its mark in some way with everyone. So much advances have been made in the treatments available but so much more needs to be done. Our hearts go out to all those furries and humans alike who suffer from the evil of cancer.

I had to leave your post, when I saw you put tucker had gone, so sad, I had only just put a comment on his last post, so came is a bit of a shock.
So gald your dad is cancer free. It gives hope to others. Moms dog Jack passed away with cancer, they got me because they new that a dog would make the family complete.
I think I'm doing a pretty good job of keeping them happy. Just like you are doing, come rain or shine.

WFT Nobby said...

Hi Asta
Oh I am SO glad that the clever doctors managed to make your Daddi well again. He really does sound absolutely the best.
I tried to do my little bit for Livestrong today. Gail and I went out for a nice walk with one of her friends who lost her husband to a brain tumour earlier this summer. I bounced around and did my best to provide some distraction, and although this friend is still terribly sad and down, I think I did see a hint of a smile flicker across her face once or twice.
Toodle pip!

Eric said...

Lovely post sweetpea. Here's to Daddi and his big celebration in February.Thank dog he has the terrier tenacity to fight and be well and you and Mommi to cheer him on.

We cross paws and send love and healing zen to all those on your honour list and all who need it to help them live strong.

Wiry loves Eric xxx

Hi Asta & thanks for stopping by our blog to read about our human dad!
Your dad has been through alot too, and today we honor all people & animals who have dealt with this horrible disease.
We are so glad your angel sister was there for him. It must be awful for people to go through these things without an animal companion to give hugs to and absorb the tears. And we are glad you have blessed their lives now as they go forward.
You are a dear little doggie, and a sweet girl!

Sunshade said...

We loved your post sweet Asta! We are SO happy to know your wonderful Daddi beat the Evil-C, we hope everyone/pup will be as lucky as him. It is something that must be destroyed and conquered. I'm so sorry to hear about your Angel sissie Nowa, she was such a great gurrrrl to hang on for your Daddi. Now you are following in her footsteps and you are a greatest little gurrrrrl for your daddi and mommi!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Sweet Astaroni Fuzzbutt O' Mine!

You live strong every day because you have such a huge heart full of love. Your daddi & mommi are so lucky to have you. Please give your daddi some goob smooches from me (and Stella says to give him some lovin' from her too - she's thinks of him as her adoptive daddi too). Of course, give your mommi my love, and save the biggest, juiciest smooch for yourself!

Living strong for you!!!

Goober love,
