Update on Lorelei

We recently found out that Lorelei - our 11 year old Rescue has inoperable cancer.  We took her to the best Veterinary oncology surgeon in the state, the cost didn't matter, but there was nothing he could do.  An aggressive soft tissue sarcoma, it's symptoms were likely masked by her arthritis and hip issues It was only when the ortho Vet that sees her monthly found a suspicious lump which was biopsied that we knew something was worrisome.

She's happy as long as she has her pain meds which he's amped up, and she's playful and eating well, enjoying her new little "sister" and enjoying the moment.  But our time with her is short (weeks perhaps) so blogging will be light while we spend as much time as we can spoiling her (which includes extra cheese treats).

Hugs your loved ones close, especially the furry ones.


  1. Hugging our furry ones and praying for comfort for you and those you love. Mark

  2. I'm so very sorry to hear about sweet Lorelei, such a beautiful girl.

  3. So sorry to hear this news. The evil C strikes again. But Lorelei was so blessed to find her furever home with you where she is loved and well cared for. All the best to her for the time she has left.

    Hugs and Woos - Misty, Timber, and Mom

  4. Sending all my love and prayers to sweet Lorelei and hugs for you. I'm so sorry you didn't get better news.

  5. We're so sorry to hear about Lorelei's diagnosis. Our paws are crossed that she can be happy and pain free during her final days.

  6. I am so sorry to hear that... no one ever wants to hear cancer, it strikes not only fear but dread into your heart like nothing else. Take care of you all and hugs to you all. Love and hugs and pain meds are all you can do. As helpless as you feel , you are doing so much to help her. Hugs and smooches to your pooch, she has known great love.
