Here is what I know:

  • Josie was my dog.
  • Josie loved to cuddle.
  • Josie made people fall in love with her.
  • Josie barked – a lot – it grew on you.
  • Josie had a nasal tumor.

Josie started showing signs in the summer of 2014. She passed away peacefully in the fall of 2015.

During the course of treatment, I learned a ridiculous amount about cancer in dogs, particularly nasal cancer. Hopefully, our experience can help someone else.

Josie was more than the disease that took her from this world. She was a happy dog whose whole butt shook when she was happy, wagging her tail. Her last few months were hard – for both of us. But it did give me the opportunity to share her with the world – her life and her struggles. She was a dog most people disregarded at first. But if you gave her a few minutes – you quickly fell in love.

I know I did.

    Wow – thanks. I don’t know a whole lot about awards – being this is my first one blog and my first award. But when I have a chance I’ll check it out. And thanks for following along in our journey. I’m encouraged (and I’m sure Josie is too – she feeds off my energy) knowing there are folks out there that wanna hear her story and know how she’s doing.
