I rescued Booboo and her sister from a Meth-lab here in Tacoma, WA. She has been my companion longer than any other being on the planet. She has lived through meth labs, drug addiction, homelessness, abduction, and still beat the odds to find herself in the comfort of my protection. Booboo's and I have been through very hard times, when I was homeless she slept loyally in my back-pack and never strayed away from me. Since those horrible days, so long ago, we have built a life together. Booboo's used to sit by my side through all of my college papers including my Bachelor's thesis of 44 pages! I finished school in 2010 and bought a house in May of 2011; consequently, Booboo's was diagnosed with mammarian cancer the same week I got my home. I feel as though we have traveled a very difficult path and here we are at the end and she is struck down with this horrible disease. I sit powerless against a force that I cannot mitigate. In the eyes of the law I own her, but I concede that she truly has owned my heart, and love, she has had me under her spell of loyalty and companionship since I the day I layed eyes on her. I used to think I saved her, but in time, I found that she saved me. She gave me something to care for. In Booboo's, I found strength when I was lost in a sea of despair. When I cared nothing for myself she would look up at me and remind me that she needed me. She was never just a pet, she is the child I could never have!
Details you'd like to share about your pet's cancer:
Booboo's has had 2 surgeries and still is fighting the good fight against a disease that knows no species boundaires. She is the best companion that anyone could ask for, even after her last surgery, Booboo's continued to follow me around the house despite the pain she must have been in.
