Goodbye Phoebe (2000-2011)

Barely a few weeks after losing our cat Sicily, we lost our “baby” Phoebe, an amazing black lab on July 15th. I’ve been putting off writing this for months now, and I really need to get through it. I’m not sure I’ll do her justice in the first post here, so I’ll probably go back later and edit it.

Like Sicily, Phoebe suffered a rapid onslaught of cancer. We noticed a number of small hard lumps going in almost a straight line down her back, and initially attributed them to a skin reaction from changing the stuff we used for anti-flea/tick. But they quickly became larger and harder, and then she simply stopped eating. We tried everything to get her to eat (and I mean everything you can think of). The vet wasn’t sure what the problem was, but was concerned about the lumps, so we tried some different meds and food, and he took a biopsy of one of the lumps.

Snow Day! Finally!

I’ve been waiting a few years for a good snow day in Raleigh. Finally, today is the day.

I’m hoping I’ll get a chance to head downtown Raleigh tonight and snap some more.

In the meantime, I posted the best of the morning run here.

This one isn’t so much snow related, but it is a damn cute photo of Phoebe looking for mail or maybe some treats.
