Missing Kess

'Tis sweet to hear the watch-dog's honest bark
Bay deep-mouth'd welcome as we draw near home;
'Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
Our coming, and look brighter when we come.

Lord Bryon

Coming home is not the same without Kess' greeting at the door. It's been two weeks since her passing and I miss her so much. Mia misses her sister too.

Take time to smell the flowers

This was taken about a 1.5 weeks ago. Even in her pain, she stopped and smelled the flowers. There is so much our dogs teach us about life. I miss her so much.

Farewell sweet Kess

Sweet 16

Our Kess is sweet 16. That makes her equivalent to about 85 years old in human terms. Happy birthday sweet girl!

We weren't sure if she would be able to celebrate this birthday as she was diagnosed with oral osteosarcoma (bone cancer in her jaws) late last year. She was given 3 months survival without invasive surgery to remove all the tumor and chemotherapy. We've passed that mark. Recently we started her on Chinese medicine, including Yunnan bai yao to prevent oral bleeding and to make her life as comfortable as possible.

Each day is a gift. She continues to have good appetite and is fairly active for her age. We love you, our dear beagle.

Who is mirroring who?

As we mentioned earlier, it is very common for these two beagles to encounter buffaloes on our walks.

Guess who is mirroring who?

It's been too long...

This two beagles have been absent from the blogging world as there has been lots of stuff happening in our world. Since our last post, we've moved to the countryside and are loving the green space and nearby beach.

Our walks are so much more interesting now as there are lots of wonderful trails in our neighborhood. It is not uncommon for us to encounter a buffalo or two on our walks. Generally, the buffaloes ignore us and given their size, we've learnt to ignore them too ;-)

Rainy day

When the weather is like this outside...
Kess and Mia, our beagles are doing this inside...

Warm and dry ;-)

Thanks for signing my guest book.
