Thank you Tazzie for posting here, I rarely check the blogs - just too many to keep up with. I did go post to the blog.
RIP sweet Toto, Run Free at Rainbow Bridge .

Thank you Taz -
I've been so lax here lately on checking the blog feeds. I missed this.
I'm just so sorry for the loss of Toto.
Comet - 1999 to 2011
She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.
She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

Yes, thank you for sharing this post in the forums. Toto would be proud of the support this community offers.
I need to frequent the blogs more often. I'm so sorry that another one of our heroes has passed. I sometimes get caught up in myself and my own situation, it's these times that I'm reminded of the vast amount of pain and sorrow this awful disease causes. My heart goes out to Toto's family for their loss. RIP sweet Toto.

Thank you all so much for your love and support. It means so much to know that others understand the pain we are going through.
And Toto, Too – fighting the good fight against hemangiosarcoma http://tootswee.....pawds.com/ Amputation - 9/21/09 Earned his wings - 7/09/10
Oh Toto! How sweet your little face is! I remember when I first heard you had hemangiosarcoma, I was really worried for you because I know how serious that dang cancer is...but then you kept on living! You amazed me every day, little guy, and you will always be a survivor.

I am so sorry for your loss of Toto. Sending you prayers, to help you through your grief, that you find peace - knowing that he is now free of pain.

BTW - The quotes are from the old Disney movie "The Fox and The Hound". Copper is a young bloodhound and Todd is a young fox. They meet as pups, before Copper is "trained" as a hunter. Todd was taken in and is being cared for by the neighbor of the hunter. Arch enemies - and the question - does their friendship over-ride nature/nurture?

"Going Dog" def: living every day in the moment
"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."
