We just wanted to let everyone know that we have made the gut wrenching decision to help brinks over the rainbow bridge tomorrow. We can not be selfish and he has let us know that ITS TIME. The chemo has not been working and his tumor has actually enlarged over the last days. We can tell he is in a lot of pain and has started to refuse food. We think it is because he is in a great deal of pain and the pain medicine may not be working anymore as the tumor has gotten bigger. We have each spent a night with him and explained to him that we love him and his pain will soon end. We have said we are sorry that there is nothing that can heal him. Both me and my mom will be there tomorrow holding his paw when the time comes. Please keep us in your prayers tomorrow as this has already been a terrible month and tomorrow will be heartbreaking. We love you all that continue on the journey with us after all that we have been through. Bella the original of the pittie pack will be taken care of with extra care as she has been attached to him since we rescued her. Brinks was the one who "welcomed" her into the pack and never left her side until now. Please let some of our fur blogging friends know if you can so we can all lift him up tomorrow when it's his time to be reunited with our precious Fearless Five.

It is with immense sadness that I have to report that the c monster has struck again. Boy we sure hate that monster. My beloved gramps walked over the rainbow bridge this past Friday. We had not posted about it sooner because he was just admitted to the hospital literally one week before. He was diagnosed with cancer within days and we were told he only had a few days to live. All this was a whirlwind and we were beyond shocked. He was one of this men that never complained about a pain so he didn't worry my granny. He would take care if my granny as best he could and never wanted to see her worry. Granny and gramps were married since they were 17 and a can only hope to god to have a love like theirs in our lifetime. I lived with them all my life until I got married myself so he was really a father to me and we miss him terribly already. He was always full of laughter and that is what I'll most remember about him. Even on the hospital bed in pain he was cracking jokes. He was one of those people that made your stomache hurt from laughing so much. We are holding strong for gramma. We have to keep her spirits up now that he is watching over us. He would have been 92 on March 24th. I guess their is going to be a in pawty now at the bridge on that day. Please keep us in your prayers. Especially my granny. We love you all and thank you for checking in on us.
