    I lost a friend

    I really hate to post this after reading about the problems that Tom Baugues is having, that is why I chose a new post rather than adding to his. But I have to say to Tom that my heart goes out to you and I hope all turns out well.

    My 11 year old Cairn Terrier, Angus McKee was put down today due to cancer in his front elbow or joint. It was discover a month ago, but spread so fast he couldn't stand or walk. It's almost like losing a child.

    You certainly have my sympathy Jiggs. Been there; done that several times. It is a loss of a family member.

    Very sorry to see the news, Jiggs. The little critters definitely become part of the family, and it's tough when they go.

    My sincerest condolences...

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
