Today is Effie’s two-year ampuversary.

Two years! It is truly a cause to celebrate.

And, yet, I admit that the photo above was not taken recently. That was September. Things started to turn about a month ago, especially so this past week.

I can’t bring myself to write a longer post at the moment, but I can say we just returned from the oncologist.

It’s time.

Tomorrow, I’ll be taking the day off, so that we can do some of her favorite things and visit some of her favorite people. Then she and I and C and her puppy, Ella, will spend a special Saturday morning together.

I hope, in the coming months, I can post some more details about the good times she was able to have over the past two years. In the meantime, we’ll be focusing on bringing her peace as best we can.

Love and hugs and a good night to all..

    I’m so sorry to hear this, so very, very sorry. I know this was so hard to write. Our tears fall with yours.

    But roght now, we aregpi g to hold those tears back and help celebrate our sweet Effie💖 She has given sooop much hope to any dog starting this journey with her two year MILESTONE! Effie has shown everyone what’s possible and that statistics don’t mean crap.

    As hard as it is, you are giving Effie the most selfless gift of love. A gift she knew she could count on when she told you she was ready to shed her earth clothes that no longer serve her.

    We are all “standing vy your side” as you make more beautiful memories with Effie over the next days. As you talk with her and laugh and cuddle as you recall all the special times you’ve shared, be sure and let her know what a privilege it has been for is to get to know her. Let her know that her gift for fashion is already legendary around here. Let her know how we cheered and applauded with every great update and ever delightful photo!

    I can only imagine the feast that will greet her when she gets to the Bridge. My Happy Hannah will be part of the welcome home committee and will have a huge bowl of ice cream waiting for her! Amd Effie will be telling everyone jow she had the best send off from her hoomans any dog could have. She’ll tell them how every single day of her life…every single day…she was surrounded by love and was spoiled…so very spoiled…more than any dog could EVER hope for!!

    We will be holding you in our hearts and surrounding you with our love and our hugs. We are so grateful to you for sharing the beautiful, smiling Effie with us. She’S touched us you. And give her Grandma a hug from us too.

    Love and light

    I was just going back to look at some of Effie’s posts, and realized I missed the post about adopting Ella. The introduction of her as BATPUPPY next to SUPERGIRL DAWG Effie….sooooo darn cute!

    Looks like from the photo above, Ella still likes to play “biteyface”. And clearly Effie doesn’t mind. Effie has an un forgettable smile.

    Holding you in our hearts💖💖💖
