I didn’t have a wedding this past weekend.

And the timing could not have been better.  april-rose

You see, Greg and I are dog lovers.  Our purpose as a couple, besides loving and caring for each other, is to rescue and care take dogs who have been neglected and abused.

One of our sweet ones was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer in mid-August.  Sweet April Rose has had two surgeries and 5 chemo treatments.

Knowing April’s great spirit and will to live, we decided to fight for her, always with her best interests in mind. beautiful-april

April was doing very well (the cancer went into remission) and then the tumor returned full force last week.   Our oncology vet calls it “a beast.”

Gratefully, and for the first time in many months, I didn’t have a wonderful wedding this past weekend, giving me the precious opportunity to be home with April and to love on her.

I know this post doesn’t have anything to do with a wedding.

It has to do with love.  And because I felt like celebrating our girl…and posting her beautiful photos!
