I Miss Him!

Monday was a very sad day in my life!  My buddy of 11 years left this world for the next.  I take comfort in the fact that he is no longer suffering, and that he will not be alone on his next journey.  I believe he will be welcomed and comforted by my stepmother (who passed away 2 years ago).  She was a lover of all animals, especially dogs, and I know she will take good care of him.

Our vet believed that Tank had a brain tumor, or suffered from a recent stroke.  Either way, his health and quality of life was quickly declining.  Since there was no treatment options for either case, the only humane thing was to let him go.  It was very difficult, but it was best for him.

I got Tank as an 8 week old puppy, so its hard to imagine life without him.  He was a wonderful dog, and I loved him so very much! 

R.I.P. Little Dog!

2013 Denver NF Walk

The Denver NF Walk has come and gone again this year!  I think our planning committee did a great job.  As always we had new things we tried that worked, and others that didn't, and are full of ideas for next year already.  We raised a ton of money for NF research and clinics this year, and I would call that a major success!!  I'm so honored to be part of the NF community here.  Its like being part of one really big family!

This year Sara wasn't able to be at the walk, but our team turned out anyway to support her and show her how much she's loved...even when she isn't able to be with us.

We love you Sara!!!
