The Queen is gone, long live the queen

I have put off writing this post for as long as I can.  In late 2011, we were informed that our beloved Hershey had adenocarcinoma.  The tumor was extremely fast growing and invasive, which I am told is common for the type of cancer.  The cancer had also metastasized to several major organs, including lungs and heart.  Due to her age and the extent of the mets, we chose to stick to palliative care and to make the most of the time she had left.

On January 10, 2012--just shy of her 14th birthday-- we had to make the hard decision to let her go.  Those who know us (or have followed the blog) know that Hershey was the queen of our household, and taught us so much about dogs, dog training, and life.

The dynamics in the house have not been the same, and we still miss her.  We will never forget you, Hershey, you will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Hershey, as a pup. 

Thank you to Walnut Creek Animal Clinic for the beautiful box for Hershey's ashes.

RIP Hershey 5/10/1998 to 7/10/2012
