The day before...

Tomorrow is the big day. Today, I needed some time with my K, off by ourselves in the beautiful mountains. So, we cheated and walked a bit further than our vet told us was okay (but I kept K on leash, as instructed). I decided to cheat because I knew that it might be K's last hike as a four-legged dog. We went up to our sunrise/sunset viewpoint and sat on our favorite lichen-covered boulder with views to the east and west.

I admired her beautiful and strong legs.
On our hike home, we stopped and hugged under a sliver of a moon. I promised her that the Runner and I would do our very best tomorrow to choose the treatment that would give her the best quality of life. I think that she understood.
We'll keep you posted on what happens tomorrow. I'm sorry that I haven't been visiting blogs very much. I've been too preoccupied, doing my homework before K's appointments and probable surgery tomorrow.

  1. You and K have been on our mind all week. We know you and the Runner will make the best call for K. Hugs to you and lots of good thoughts for things to go well.

  2. I could look into K's face all day long, MOM can too.
    I know it is a scary and uncertain time for you both. But know that there are many of us who are pulling for you, praying for you, sending healing and comforting hugs. Whatever the outcome you are in our prayers and thoughts.
    MOM took me on a long walk tonight and she talked to me about K and how worried you are. We stop and sat on a rock and silly as it may sound to some, she held my paws and we prayed and prayed. Please give Miss K a hug for me and one for you too.
    Blessings,
    Goose

  10. Don't worry a whit about visiting! I understand and I'd be doing the very same thing. The blogs will all still be there tomorrow and the day after that. K is beautiful, and not just because she has four perfect legs. She's beautiful because of what she possesses inside, and because of what she brings out in you. Your spirits resonate together and make beautiful music!

  20. Pushed away from the computer just now and stepped outside: it's a clear night with Orion blazing to the south, and like Tweedles I wished on all those bright stars, "Love and the very best for K." You are in our thoughts --
