Taking a break ...


I won't be here for a little while. This is because just at the moment I can't bring myself to blog about life with newfies. I am expecting very soon to have only one newfie as Amy is very very ill. She won't be with me for very much longer - and yes, that's definite.
She has hemangiosarcoma - a particularly aggressive form of canine cancer with a prognosis of 1 - 2 months. So Ben and I need to come to terms with saying goodbye to her ladyship. I don't know how either of us will manage without her ... Ben in particular has never known life without his "mum." The picture above was taken in his very early days. Even then he had to copy and do exactly as Amy did. We're concentrating on making sure her last few weeks are happy ones and we'll be back later in the year.

See you soon .... and you can still catch me on Bustle and Sew if you're into crafty goodness.....

I am so sorry that your Amy has cancer.....we lost one of our goldens to the same thing. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet and I know that it is going to be so hard for Ben also. Please know that I will be thinking of you during this so very difficult time. I bought one of your sweet knitted lambs a few weeks back.

Oh this is breaking my heart - I just found your other blog, your newsletter, and this blog from your newsletter - I am so sorry you're having to go through this. My heart goes out to you and your babies.

Hi. I just found your blog (and love it). So sorry to hear about Amy. A few years ago we lost one of our two (twin) cats. It's so hard, isn't it. But you're doing the right thing by preparing yourselves, and making her last days comfortable. That's important. My thoughts are with you.

Thank you everyone ... so kind of you to think of us.

I'm so sorry for you and Amy.

When tomorrow starts without me
Don't tink we're far apart
Everytime you thing about me
I'm right here - in your heart


I know that nothing can make you feel better, but enjoy the time with Amy. One day, she will send you a little soul, that needs all your love. And because this little soul will be special, you will know that's a gift from Amy
Hugs Gunda

Hold these moments close in your heart. I know you will. Ben will remember too. As a fellow Newf owner I know from losing my first Newf, Bella, how difficult this time is. Ben will miss her too. Though we've never met, I most certainly will be holding you, Ben and especially beautiful Amy in my thoughts and prayers.
