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.

Thanks for signing my guest book.
