I do trust all of the ideas you have introduced for your post.
They’re really convincing and can definitely
work. Still, the posts are very brief for newbies. May just you please prolong them a
little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

Today I learned of my long, long time friend, we talked on the phone maybe 3 weeks ago, the chemo was a hard time, but better times were to be ahead soon, when the chemo was done. A better person I don’t think I’ve ever known, our world is a more sad place for me for awhile now, I know Gracie girl,Lilly Pearl an Hanna Nana don’t understand what has happened to the one human being they love with all their heart and soul. Dianne an I would talk an laugh so hard over the antics of the dog kids, so I know that was the hardest part for her,to have to leave them behind. I have thought the same thing of my dog babies, hopefully they can stay together. Rest in peace my sweet, sweet friend, I will always be honored to call you my friend.

I am part owner of Pampered Pet Grooming, we are heartbroken over Dianne’s passing. We have known her for many years grooming her dogs and participating in pet events. She was a wonderful person. When she found out about her cancer she came and talked to us for about 20 minutes, she was so surprised and we saw her after her first treatment, we never expected her to pass. We are also heartbroken for her dogs, they are very special to us. We talked to the rescue that are taking them and hope we will still be able to see them. If you need anything regarding the dogs other than the rescue please call us. We will be sending a donation to Mending Hearts, we talked to Sienna yesterday and she set up the plan to put them in foster. Just so you know the whole pet community in Rockford loved Dianne and she will be missed by so many.
