We took one last hike with Shep yesterday to his memorial site. He would have loved the hike and we think he would love his memorial spot. He gets to oversee everything from his perch including our home. That’s what he liked to do at all times – make sure he could see everything and ensure everyone was safe.
Addie had a rough time of it last week without Shep. She was very depressed. We are trying to keep her playing with her toys and chasing her ball to keep her active. We hope she is coming out of it now. It can’t be good for her with cancer to be stressed. She did do really well on the hike yesterday. It was a tough one and we were out for about 5 hours, but she hung in there. We were a little concerned as she did have cooler paws yesterday morning. We took some Yunnan with us and gave her another during the hike. Although a little slow moving today (but we all are…), she is doing well. We don’t want to deprive her of the things she loves either- like hikes and such.
Her 13th month anniversary is upon us and we are grateful to still have her here. She has been a great comfort over the past several days and we hope she is with us for years to come.
