Cancer. It’s a word I’ve heard every day in my house for the last 3 ½ years. You see, my husband is an (human) oncologist and you would think we would be used to that word by now, but we are not. It never gets any easier to hear, and he is the doctor no one ever wants to meet. Every day he comes home, he talks on the phone to his patients about what they are facing, what research shows, what he will do to stand beside them, what are their options and who will be there to support them. He spends most of his free time studying, researching, calling other physicians and getting trials approved. Research and treatments have evolved for us humans since those first few cancer cells were discovered in 1951, but that doesn’t make each personal journey any easier once that word is spoken.
I’ve had years of experience playing with puppies, but my husband and I have just recently found out that I am pregnant with two babies of our own! So, of course, now I have had babies on the brain. I have been wondering how prepared I am for motherhood, so I have started finding ways to compare babies to puppies, so I can talk myself into feeling more confident!
Does your dog need a new toy? Why not something different from the same old tennis balls, stuffed animals, ropes, and bones? My dogs needed a new toy, so I decided to give Nylabone’s Happy Moppy DuraToy a try with my dogs, and they loved it for different reasons.
