All Our Children Meow and Woof: Double Anniversary

All Our Children Meow and Woof

I created this blog to sort through my emotions as Finnegan, a great Irish Wolfhound, fought bone cancer for nearly 26 months. Fortunately, his battle subsided for many months and during the course of the 26 months, I shared stories about his feline siblings. On August 8, 2008, Finny passed on in my husband's and my arms. He fought the good fight and he will always have a special place in my heart. *If you have a question, please write me at finnegandog at gmail dot com.*

Double Anniversary

It has been a whole year since I started this blog (with the help of my mommy) and from when I was first diagnosed with cancer. I have experienced more than I could imagine. From having my leg amputated to learning how to walk with three legs, it has been an ordeal for my family and me. I looked weak and sick from chemotherapy but surprised everyone in the beginning of 2007 by being stronger and looking, if I can say it, okay I can, abso-fucking-lutley gorgeous. My hair grew back, my eyes lit up, and I could take walks with my mommy. Of course, it has not been easy. My ability to climb up and down stairs is not great, although it never has been. Imagine a llama climbing up and down your staircase. But I am still here a year later, hanging in there. One day at a time.

I'm so glad I have met so many great dogs (and humans). It's been a fun year reading about all your adventures and insights. It's also been sad losing two good friends, Fufu and Breeze. Although we were very sad about their passing, it has also shown me how close everyone can become just over the Internet.

I hope to have another year with you all and look forward to meeting more wonderful doggies, kitties, and hamsters.

BTW, when is your mom going to finish the story of Finnegan? When she put part 1 on, I assumed that meant there was at least a part 2. Come on, girl! INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW!

Goob love to you, man!
