Sad news

WOOOO everyone
I gotta get some sad news outta the way before I do a happy post.  My family lost our two founding members last month.

This is Glacier.  He was my momma's very first pet that she got all on her own as a grown-up.  He had been with mom since he was a tiny 6 week old kitten.  Mom thought he would be around for a few more years.  Glacier was 14, but that ain't all that old for a cat who's been spoiled and in the house his whole life!
Glacier didn't act sick until just 2 days before he died.  Mom took him to see Dr. Candace cuz he just seemed blah; he wasn't purring and snuggling like Glacier always did.  It turned out that Glacier had those dang cancer bugs in his tummy.  Dr. Candace did her very best, as she always does, but Glacier was just getting sicker and sicker. So Mom had no choice but to let him go across the Bridge.   Glacier died with Mom holding him on October 11, 2012.
This is Muskwa! Muskwa was with our Dad since he was a wee puppy.  He'd been with Dad longer than Mom!  In June of this year, Muskwa got really sick all of the sudden.  His liver was not working right and he was feeling crummy.  He got some medicine, extra foodies, and saw Dr. Candace alot!
Muskwa was always a very stubborn dog, so when he was told he was only going to live a few weeks, he decided not to listen!  He lived another four months!  Mostly he did good too with just a few bad days in between mostly good days.
But eventually even the most stubborn dog has to give in!  Muskwa's old body just couldn't keep up any more!  He turned 15 years old on October 20!  On October 24, my humans helped Muskwa to be free from his failing body. 
Glacier and Muskwa started our furry family.  We all miss them very much, but we are also very glad of them.  Who knows what would have happened to the rest of us if there had never been Glacier & Muskwa?!!
Godspeed my brofurrs.

Aw Tehya,
So sorry to hear that you lost two family members. We are all so sad for you. I lost my dad dog Dave just last week, so I know how you feel.
They were lucky to have such wonderful pawrents (just like you) and I know their spirits will be watching over all of you. Give you pawrents extra kisses to help them feel better and I bet they will do the same to you!

Sad woos,
Skye, the Moondance Huskies, kitties and mom Joan
