Paint Party Friday and Six Word Saturday

 Awful two weeks
Very sick doggie.


I have mothers and babies on my mind now as I have been nursing my little girl for two weeks.
 It has been a terrible fortnight for us.
She is in heart failure and we nearly lost her 2 weeks ago. The vet has stabilised her on 2 new meds and she is quieter, sleepier but comfortable. Her quality of life is still good, she isn't in any pain and we are so grateful to have her with us. She is 12 now but has been a very active, healthy, happy girl all these years, so this is a shock!
Happy belated Thanksgiving and Chanukah to you all.

I feel badly for poor little Snuffles. She has been such a comfort to you. I am glad the meds are helping her to feel better.

I'm so sorry to hear about your little dog being so ill. She's a beautiful little thing and I can well imagine how sore your heart is at the thought of losing her from your family. Wishing her only good things.

Love your paintings, Jossie! Congrats on the sale.

beautiful painting. It's so hard to deal with a beloved pet's illness and suffering. She is such a sweetie-she certainly doesn't look 12. I know Momma is taking such good care of her. Hope she continually improves with her meds.

We all have our paws crossed for our friend Snuffles. Mom knows how you're feeling and she thinks of you often.

Oh I too feel your pain...that adorable face reminds me of the four that I have had over the years and loved like children! It's so hard when they're sick... all the best for your little girl.
