Rest in Peace, my Sweet Angel

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Rest in Peace, my Sweet Angel, originally uploaded by *SuperstarSinger* Felicia Folinazzo.

Vega lost his battle with lymphoma. After 3 months of chemotherapy, Vega was no longer responding to the treatments. His lymph nodes had become so swollen that they were visible through his fur. The last few days of his life, he stopped eating and couldn’t walk. He’d lost a lot of weight, which was visible in his face and head, but the rest of his body was swollen from the cancer. I didn’t want my baby to suffer anymore.

Vega was an incredible dog. He was extremely gentle and sweet and loved by many people. I was not the only person who suffered a broken heart by Vega’s passing.

I told him that I’ll see him again one day. I find comfort in knowing that he’s not alone and is being cared for by my grandparents in Heaven.

Friday, November 7th, 2008
There has been a noticeable lull in our blog posting, at least on my behalf. No exciting trips to write about, nor are there any travel plans in the works. That is because Mark and I are embarking ... [Continue reading this entry]
