This is my sweet baby, Bear. He probably adores me more than anyone else in the entire world could ever adore me.....I’m pretty sure about that.
No one looks at me with those eyes quite like he does. It doesn’t matter what I do, he always loves me.
Now, one of those eyes has a growth on it. And the spine that has been so strong has a lesion, a tumor. He’s losing control of his hind legs and is having difficulty getting around. He doesn’t walk past a few houses down the street till he just stands and can’t move. I pick him up and carry him home.
