    My life is God filtered :)


    Merlin went in for a dental today. Two extractions and a biopsy later, he's home. Vet said he has an aggressive looking growth in his mouth and he's seen this type before. Very good chance it's cancer and if it is, I elect for no further treatment. I will just spoil him for the next few months or however long he's with me.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Oh dear. I hope beyond hope that it is NOT cancer. If it is, I do hope Merlin will be pain-free for a long time. I know he'll be spoiled rotten!

    Hugs to you and dear Merlin.

    Aww, here's hoping it isn't cancer, but if it is, we know you just spoil him with love and kisses until it's time. We'll be thinking of you!

    Slick, I sure hope it's not cancer. This brings back memories of my RB Sunny. I also decided to do the same thing that you have if it is the cancer. Lots of prayers and positive thoughts are being sent Merlin's way. Please take care. (((HUGS)))

    Death thought about it.
