Collaborative traditional cut and paste (scissors and glue ) collage blog with a weekly set theme.

When I picked this week's theme "PETS" I had no idea that on that very day I was going to have to say goodbye to my beloved dog "Harvey" the cockapoo (or Spoodle as they are known in the UK). Harvey entered my life 9 years ago when he was 2 years old. I was his daytime dog-sitter and eventually adopted him full time although he actively remained in the life and heart of his former owner and we thought of ourselves as a pack. Harvey turned 11 on March 24th. On April 9th he exhibited catastrophic symptoms of some sort of poisoning? The vets were never clear. But we nursed him back to what we thought was health. On May 5th he became quite ill again and was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma -- ruptured spleen and subsequent discovery of many metastatic liver lesions. GOODBYE MY DEAR LITTLE FRIEND. I BELIEVE WE WILL BE TOGETHER AGAIN.
Yes, that is me at around age 5.
