We got the call from the vet today that our dog Rio won’t be with us much longer. Definitely a very aggressive melanoma. The vet said it probably will be a matter of weeks.
Oddly enough, he called while we were doing a photo shoot with Rio in front of the Christmas tree. A bit more to remember her by.
So, we are preparing ourselves for Rio leaving us – but at least she is much more comfortable/happy/relaxed than she was before the surgery. She truly is an amazing dog.
On a more positive note, we are looking forward to Christmas celebrations starting this evening. We are having dinner at Jeff and Danielle’s. It is the first year in their new, lovely home, so I am sure it will be extra special. Tim, Rachel and their baby Jed are joining us this year too – so it will also be extra festive!
And then after the excitement of Santa’s arrival…. we plan to be mellow, mellow, mellow in Christmas day!
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all of you!
