All Our Children Meow and Woof: 200th Post

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.*

200th Post

Where do I begin? First, I am still here. I've made it through 200 posts and I think that is pretty damn special. I might be slowing down but guess what? I am 7.5 years old, I have cancer, and I am giant breed dog. Of course I am slowing down. Second, this is about the time of year where I finished my chemotherapy. Pretty amazing, isn't it? A whole year since I went to that hospital a hundred miles away to be injected with poisons. Regardless I barely had any side effects and it kicked cancers ass for the time being. ROAR! So I say, let's celebrate my recovery and lasting power! Let's celebrate dogs all over the world and how awesome we truly are! Let's celebrate the dogs we have lost, the ones we've met and sniffed, and the ones joining us in the future! Because right now I am all about celebrating. I've got the Guinness. Who is with me?

We say "Cheers!" The adult beverage around here is Guinness but we only drink water. On Nov 4th it will be 2 years since Simon had his surgery so we'll be raising a pint to that too!!

YAY FINNY!! Happy day and drink lots of Guinness! You are a very special and strong dog.

Lots of licks and toothy smiles,

P.S. I love my kitchen floor too because it is very cool and when I am in the kitchen with mommy good treats come from above. So the kitchen is a very very good place to be.
