You always hear people saying dog is man’s best friend but in this case dog is girls best friend. On December 24th, 2005 the most amazing little puppy was born and in February of 2006, when I was 10 years old, my mom and I brought home the most beautiful puppy we’ve ever seen and her name is Nikki.
We got Nikki from a small pet shop when she was only 9 weeks old and we have never gone day without her since. Matter of fact there has only been 2 nights in Nikki’s entire life that she has not been with my mom and one of those she was with me and the other she was staying at the vet over night. Other than that our little girl has always been by our side. Never has a day gone by where I don’t think about nikki and when I moved out with Lee, not waking up next to her was hard and even harder on her. My mom said she’d even wait by the door waiting for me to come home at night.
We love this little girl more than life itself which is why the past few weeks have been so hard on us. A few weeks ago we noticed something was wrong so we took her to the vet which is when she had to stay over night. Nikki had fluid building in her and was tested on everything and she passed with flying colors and was completely healthy until they found out she had cancerous cells. I know this might sound cruel but I have gone through the loss of a few very close family members but hearing this horrible news has caused more tears than I have ever shed in all my life. Even typing this is hard because its not something I want to admit is happening.
The reason I am writing this is to show people they are not alone and that there is something that can help in some cases. When my friends found out about what my mom and I are going through majority of them said they lost a pet due to forms of cancer which I find absolutely horrible just like any other person would. Our precious pets who will love us unconditionally never deserved to deal with such a horrible disease and I hope for a day where they find a cure.
Some people may not approve of using this product but I have heard several wonderful things and in some cases have cured the animal. It’s difficult to say what will happen to my baby girl but only time will tell and unfortunately this is not a product meant for curing such things but it has proven to help in most cases. It is called Cannabidiol, which is also known as CBD. Yes it is a product of cannabis and although I have never been a fan of cannabis, I am willing to try and help my dog if I can. I know they can go through Chemo treatments but in my mind it would be way to difficult to see that happen to a poor innocent dog and even though I don’t consider Nikki to be old she is about to turn 12 which lets just say is considered a super adult (I don’t like the word senior).
I am so sorry for the sad post but I wanted to kind of explain what was going on and why I haven’t been posting lately. Unfortunately we lost Nikki on November 12th, 2017 and it has been the most difficult time for my mom and I. Neither of us have ever gone through so much pain and we miss our little girl very much and we wish every second that she was still with us. I am deeply saddened for all people who have lost their best friends to such a horrible disease. Thank you for being so understanding and for all the support I have gotten from my friends and family. I love you all.
