Hubby, Mark is having a very difficult time witnessing Chance like this. Well, we both are, but Mark is taking it the hardest right now. It has been hard on him being a working dad and being away from the dogs. He has missed out on so much time with them that he can't get back. It breaks my heart.
One shining light on Chance is Blaze. She goes outside with Chance every. single. time. he goes out. Struggling on her arthritic back legs, getting up and down, she makes sure Chance doesn't go out alone. And even if she comes in before him, she has done her job. Blazes loyalty shines a beacon of love in these sometimes dark times.
And while we have to take it easy on how far Chance and I walk, he is still one powerful, strong-willed dog, who can still pull me along if he wants. Our walks are pretty brisk. Chance is still the fastest of all the dogs, even with cancer.
We have our good days and our bad, but overall Chance is still kicking ass and that's a good thing. ♥
