It is a very sad day today. My heart is breaking over the loss of my girl Tatum. She was my inspiration as well as co founder of Bowwow Bonnets. The bond we had was like no other, but she had to leave me today due to bone cancer in her front left shoulder. Again, that damn cancer.

As a racer she broke her back right leg, well actually shattered it and my vet did the very best she could do it repair it. She didn't have the prettiest leg but we didn't care, it work pretty good and that's all that counted. Over the years she had her share of aches and pains due to her injury but dealt with it like the trooper that she was.

About a month ago, she jumped off the couch, flew around it and her back legs gave out. She saved herself from falling, but began limping on her front leg. We worked on getting that better and it did, until she started running with the others in the backyard a few weeks back. I figured she reinjured herself and started the healing regiment over again. This past weekend she was visibly uncomfortable so I had the vet come to the house to check her over. We decided to put her on prednesone and get her xrayed today. The vet felt that since she had the back leg problem for years she had to overcompensate and balance herself. Her injuries old and new were kitty corner (front left, rear right)

Well the xrays showed that my beautiful supermodel had bone cancer in her shoulder down to her elbow. There were no options for us but to say goodbye. That was our deal and I would never go back on a deal I made with my Tatie girl.

Run pain free with your brothers, Mom and friends Tatum. I loved you more than you will ever know and miss you twice as much. Til we meet again, baby!

Oh Donna I am so sorry. She is now running pain free at the bridge with some of the best. But there are no words to help you with the pain (I wish I did not know from experience) so I will send you a :bighug

 

I wish I have some words that would help, :bighug

Your post of Tatum is so touching it gave me goose bumps. It is truly love when you make a deal and keep it. She thanks you for that and for the love you gave. She will live forever in your heart. Run free sweet girl. She was a beauty!

Its so very hard to keep a promise that you know is going to hurt so much. You have my respect and Tatum, I'm sure, gave you graditude entrenched with her love. The joy of their Being is so much more than the pain of their leaving. She will continue to run whole in your heart.
