Sometimes Life is Just Too Sad

Charlie's sister Sophie is headed home. Her mom Karen says she seems to feel pretty well, but the pathology results indicate "histiosarcoma" -- a rare, aggressive, fast-moving form of cancer with very poor prognosis -- just terrible news.

We're all in shock that a dog so seemingly young and healthy could become so sick so quickly. But you know how that goes; many of you have been through similar experiences yourselves.

For what it's worth, Sophie is about to embark on a life of being spoiled and pampered -- doing what she wants, when she wants, being constantly fussed over and played with, and always being offered the "good" treats.

So furry true Charlie -

So furry true and yet so wrong -

We know Sophie will have no doubts she is loved when her khrossing is necessary -

Until then, please tell her - and her mom - they'll be in our thoughts -

Khyra and Her Mom

Sophie deserves the best of the best from here on in. Her family must be just devastated with this news. I'm so happy they get some time with her though.
