Animals are members of the family - Share your pet stories
Family isn't just made up of humans
So after sharing the story yesterday of the photoshoot I did for my friends when their dog was dying of cancer, I got a lot of comments from everyone telling me about their pets and how much they meant to them and that some of you in the community have lost your beloved pets due to similar circumstances.
The picture above is my baby boy Titus when he was just a puppy. This was taken a few years ago and it was his first time in the snow and he loved it. Titus rarely leaves my side and is the best dog I have ever owned. When I am working he is usually laying at my feet and sleeps at my side every night.
This is Titus all grown up. Huskies are such goofballs when they are playing. We have another dog named Harley and they have a great time together.
Harley is a yellow lab and he is a bit of a chunkster. He likes to try and sneak extra food when no one is looking. Harley is the big brother and the more responsible one. Titus used to break out of his kennel when he was younger and would run around and go crazy in the basement, while Harley would sit in his kennel and just watch him getting into all sorts of trouble. Luckily he has grown out of that stage and has chilled out more and doesnt feel the need to knock down the Christmas tree while we are at work and eat the ornaments that the kids made when they were little.
I also have two Siamese cats named Sammy and Sophie. They are pretty awesome. Usually cats are pretty anti-social beings, but my cats love to be around people, even guests, to the point where it can get annoying.
I have had cats growing up my whole life and my favorite cat ever was our black cat we got when I lived in Japan that we named "Habu". He was named after a poisonous snake that is native to Japan. In Okinawa they would have Habu and Mongoose fights all the time where you can pay and go watch the two battle it out, it was pretty cool. I was like 7 or 8 when we went and saw it.
Anyways... What made Habu such a cool cat was that he had 3 legs. He had got his leg caught in a large swinging door one day while we were at church and was stuck in there for a few hours until we got home. When we finally got him out and were able to bring him to the emergency vet clinic, the bones in his leg looked as if they had exploded, so we had to amputate his leg so he would not die. He recovered from it and lived to be about 17 years old and was such an awesome cat.

Hello friend @derangedvisions Your publication has hit me very closely, I have a dog and as I have no children, sometimes I feel as if she were my daughter, lately she has been very close and loving with me, I would not be able to take her off my side if something like this happened. Dogs are a sincere love, I hope with all my heart that Lola's cancer is over and she heals, I know it's difficult, but there are miracles.
@kantos, I am looking forward to reading your post. I am also looking forward to everyone else's. Pets are special. Thank you all for taking the time to read this. You are awesome.
