I got an email from my dad this morning telling me to call him right when I wake up. My stomach got a little nervous. It's the kind of email that you know something bad has happened or else they would have told you in the email. 

So I called dad right away and he broke the news to me that our beloved pup of around 15 years (I forget how old exactly) passed away. It wasn't a big surprise as she was quite old and ailing. She was blind and deaf and had constant seizures. She was also waking everyone up at night to go pee causing a severe lack of sleep for my parents. Anyways, I guess she had a major seizure and once she snapped out of it, she just wasn't the same. Dad took her to the vet and they had to put her down. 

We loved her. She was such a big part of our family for the past 15 years. Amazing how animals can grab a hold of a special part of your life, eh? We will miss you Lucy lu. 

In the meantime, Neema returned from the vet this morning where she got spayed or, as I like to say, snippered. As you can tell from this photo, she is not the happiest cat alive. I started noticing last week that she was acting really strange. I mentioned it to Kelvin and he told me that she is in heat. I have never experienced a cat in heat. It was wild! We decided it was time to make sure miss Neema doesn't have any mini-neemas.  We bought this tiny basket and picked her up this morning. Since then, she has been trying to bite her stitches (no head cone here) and then she gets scared of them and tries to run away from them. Obviously, they follow her everywhere she goes so it has been a bit tormenting for her.

Kelvin could probably care less about my animal stories. Animals are only really good for food around here so naturally my husband doesn't have the compassion I do for my animals. Thank God that he still loves me! 


  1. Oh no! Sorry to hear about Lucy. What a sweet doggy she was. I will miss her too. At least she isn't suffering from her seizures anymore.

  2. Thanks Michelle. It's funny to think how long we've had her when primary and middle school friends are remembering her. yes, it is good she is not suffering anymore. We had debated for so long whether to put her down or not so we are kind of relieved she finally had one last seizure and passed away.
