Lost


This sketch has a special meaning for me.  Over the summer, I discovered a mast cell tumor in my dog's right foot.  It was frightening to think I might lose her to cancer and to not know what was going to happen.   It came as such a shock as well, because she had been in such perfect health all her life.  Thankfully it was not aggressive, and the tumor was completely removed along with the cancerous cells.

So good to hear she's fine now! We also had a scary dog health issue recently--cancer in his eye. Also happy ending: eye removed, cancer gone :) He's still a happy guy. We call him our Cyclops now ;)
Positively sweet , heart-wrenching illustration!!!
