In which I can't stop crying long enough to title this post in seventeen syllables

Last week, she seemed "not quite right."

The blood test says lymphoma.

She's stopped eating, she's weak, she's wobbly.

It won't be long now. 

Prayers, candles, crossed fingers, and kind thoughts are gratefully accepted on behalf of Pickles Marie Tinydog.

We love her so much.

  1. I know life isn't fair, but I just can't help thinking - it's not fair. It's just really not fair.

    I'm sorry, Aarene. I'm really just so sorry.

  3. I'm so sorry. I hope she doesn't suffer long.

    I know you all have shown her so much love and kindness in her short time at Haiku Farm. She got to learn all about the Good Life and share your beautiful farm and trails with you. Happiness is an amazing gift to send her off with. ♥

  9. Oh, Aarene, I am so sorry. I have been there with loved animals failing--I know how terrible it is. It is still wonderful that she found love and a good home with you--that remains wonderful, even in the midst of grief. I have clung to the beauty of love through the terrible pain of loss so many times. This is what it is to have animals and love them. My thoughts are with you and your sweet dog.

  13. Oh, I am so sorry. I lost a much-loved dog to lymphoma. Know that Pickles Marie appreciates all that you've done for her and spoil her rotten in the time remaining. She is so lucky to have found you, and you, her.

    Hugs to you and Pickles Marie.

  16. I am so very, very sorry. From the moment you introduced Pickles Marie on your blog, I have loved following her story. I lost my pitti, Caleb, to lymphoma less than a year after I adopted him from a shelter - it is heartbreaking. The only solace to be found is knowing you gave a wonderful friend the best months ever.

  17. I read your post today but was at work and couldn't comment, but I've been thinking of Pickles and all the Haiku Farm humans today. I'm so sorry.
    I can't help but think that she has probably spent the best times of her life since she went home with you guys. Hugs.

  20. I am so sadden to hear of this...God found you for her to have love and peace for her last days on earth. Pickles Marie has been an inspiration to us all, to come from such dire circumstances and still have so much kindness and love in her eyes for each person she met. My prayers go out to you.
