Why So Down Annie?

Mom: Hey Anniebelle, why do you look so down? Are you practicing that look so you can get more treats?

Anniebelle: No mama, I heard about grandma being very sick and I'm scared.

Mom: Yes sweetie, so am I. We don't know everything yet and until the doctors finish the tests we just have to hang in there.

Anniebelle: I don't hang in there so well.

Mom: Me neither, but that's why we have each other. We get through our tough times by holding onto each other. You are going to need to help grandma too, and her dog Bob; he's going to need help with all of this.

Anniebelle: I love Bob - he looks like Toto on the Wizard of Oz, only fatter. Can I tell all my poochie friends something?

Mom: Of course moopies...

Anniebelle: Could you all keep my grandma and Bob in your poochie prayers? She might have a very bad illness but we won't know until the tests have confirmed it. It's this thing called Cancer and every time I hear that word I get scared because I know both humans and animals can get it. Anyway, we would all really appreciate it.

Mom: Annie, I couldn't have said it better myself. Thank you.

Hello Annie and Boomer

We hope your Grandma is going to be alright. Cancer is scary but she has all of you praying for her and loving her.

'Annie' is my mum's favourite name and if a female puppy is sent to her in the future, she has picked this name for her.

Thank you for visiting my blog, Boomer. I'm still scared of the water too.

My mum thinks your blog is very interesting. She is going to make the time to read it more very soon.

Take good care of yourselves.

Love from Hammer

Hang in there Annie. We're barking doggie prayers really loud. And take care of your mom since she's probably pretty down too.

hey annie (and her peoples)--i will be hoping for a good outcome for grandma (and her bob). i've heard that dogs can help with illness because we provide comfort and reduce stress hormones so be sure to give all the love you can (that goes for you too boomer!)

We'll be sending good doggie thoughts for your grandma and for Bob. Cancer is a scary thing, but even if it is that, the people have figured out LOTS of ways to fight it back. That's one reason to keep them around, huh?
