Puppy for Christmas
« on: December 18, 2008, 10:23:20 AM »
My mother, who has been seriously ill, told me about a month ago that she really wanted a small dog. She had a dog for 20 years that had to be put to sleep while she was in the hospital this past spring. So we decided on a toy poodle because they are small, smart and don't shed. I bought "Jackie" last week from a reputable local breeder. She is 10 weeks old and will probably only be 5 lbs as an adult. I gave her to my mom 2 days ago and she is so happy!

   Is that what they call a chocolate colored?    That is a really nice looking dog!  I don't think I have ever seen one that color..

To be honest, I really am not a fan of small dogs. Especially toy poodles (I really like standard poodles though).

But that is the cutest puppy I've ever seen in my life. Holy shit.

OMG, that dog is soooo cute.  I've never seen a toy poodle that color either.  What a good find.

She is adorable, what a thoughtful son you are!  A friend of mines mother had one that color and her name was PB- for peanut butter.
Happy Holidays!

I must admit, the pup is cute but what is more adorable is how much you love your Mother. What a great son you are. :-*

What a pretty puppy!   A great gift honey.   I've wondered how your Mom was doing with her cancer treatment...is she receiving chemo?  Not sure what the treatment plan is in this day and age.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

hugs,

Alan

   Is that what they call a chocolate colored?    That is a really nice looking dog!  I don't think I have ever seen one that color..

The color is called "red". Here is a picture of my neighbor's chocolate standard poodle.



I've wondered how your Mom was doing with her cancer treatment...is she receiving chemo? 

She has refused all treatment and diagnostic tests. We know she has a tumor on her pancreas and we know she has cancer but we don't know exactly what kind of cancer it is. The doctors gave her 3-6 months to live back in April and sent her home with hospice care to die. In June she was extremely sick, emaciated and hallucinating and we thought she had days left. Then she turned around and has been doing better since. She still has bad days where she vomits and has abdominal pain but there are more good days then bad. None of us thought she would be here for Christmas and I told her that giving us another Christmas together was all the gift we needed. Her name is Leona and I told her she has a lot of people praying for her.

Hi Ford

Now I see why your Mum has such a wonderful son, she seems like a wonderful woman.

I have huge respect for her decision to refuse treatment.  My own Mum went through years of treatment, and it did not increase her quality of life, it just kept her alive and in pain longer.

I send your Mum heaps of love and hope that Jackie brings some much needed joy into her life.
