This is Peanut Butter Brickle. It’s been a very hard week. I know it’s been hard on you too having to worry so much about me. And I appreciate that you care about me.
As much as I don’t want this monster in my mouth and it’s still there, I want you to know it’s not hurting me right now. It is staying the same size and the persons are watching it. Until we get the results from my surgery biopsy, there are still things the persons can do. And they are doing it. They are researching what our options are to treat it.
They are finding new ways to help me. They are talking to vet persons. They are even looking at treatments like mushrooms and all kinds of stuff.
But what are they not doing? They are not going to put me thru something traumatic. And I want you to hear me. I want you to see how I see things. Welcome to my world.
The Brickle universe.
The way I see things is that losing some of my face would hurt so bad. It would be hard to get over it. We all only have so many days. Why spend them in pain? Why second guess what your heart knows is best for the ones you love?
In my world, I see the wonderful parts of it. And being in surgery again is not for me. The persons know that. I know that.
Girl Persom explains everything to me. And I know nothing in life is guaranteed for any of us. There are risks we take with everything. But when you make up your mind with good and the best intentions, in my world, that is more than alright.
I dont like when persons say an older dog has had a good life and that should be enough. We need you every stage of our life, especially at my age. We don’t want to be discarded or forgotten. We don’t want to be put second when you’ve always put us first. We need you to do what you can for us.
So as we navigate thru this detour in life, the persons know in my world I trust them. I do. I see they cancelled our trip on the boat to that Italy place. It was supposed to be today. And it’s not today.
This today was not planned. But here we are.
In my world, I still have plenty of time to live life to the full. In my world, I know I’ll try. Remember most of all, to your dog, you are our world. And we love you and thank you for all you do for us. We notice it. We appreciate it. We love you.
